This one is kind of hard to explain, but one player is a ghost and trying to communicate with the psychics to explain a murder. It is very unique https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SE8KY7OV88 the link is a review that explains the game better. Very cool.

Very cute! The planet is going to explode and we must get our aliens off the planet with any means necessary be it a rocket or a slingshot. Probably a little too family oriented, but I could honestly see the group having fun with this game as it is easy to teach and play and the theme is awesome.

Okay this game is a little bit on the pricey side, but it is a great Star Wars story game. It is a dungeon crawl, but it is also a Star Wars game what more could you ask for (other than a lower price). It is scenario based one player plays the bad guys and each other player controls a single hero and works together to get through the story. Game also has a skirmish mode.

So this is a 20 year old game where you program robots and then... everything goes to hell. It looks funny and chaotic and plays well with even 6 players. You try and predict other people's movements and laugh or cry as your best laid plans go awry.

So this is formerly a print and play game called Battlestar Galactica Express. The reformat will make the game more accessible and the play time ranges from 1-2 hours although closer to the 1 hour side. This game is like a big version of Resistance in that their are traitors looking to sneakily tank the good guys objectives. It will be released very soon. It looks amazing.

One of the standards of board gaming. I have played a friend's copy and enjoyed it. The game benefits greatly from getting the expansion which does come with the deluxe version (I think).

Although I'm not enthralled by the game. It is cute and low price and will probably win the Spiel Des Jahres award for 2015. It has been described as the new Catan as in it is easy to teach and brings nongamers into the hobby. As well as can become a favorite for players not who don't want super complicated games. Expansions to the game opens up a new game type that seems better than the base game play.

This game looks like a riot. Everyone is passed out a card giving a profession and the location they are at except one player will receive a spy card. Through limited time and questioning the spy is trying to figure out the location while not revealing that he is the spy. Will be released soon.

A classic game about bean farming. Looks a little hard to teach, but is easy to play and is really affordable. Once the game is learned it is quite accessible and looks addicting.

This is considered that big daddy of coop games. The theme is cool and has many different scenarios to play through. The one hiccup is the game is difficult, but I think the constant losing will make the rare win that much more sweet.

A classic game the was just reprinted. It is a eurostyle game with tile placement as the core mechanic it is well designed and from recommendations I read as a strong appeal to chess players.

Quick card game with ever changing rules. At the end of each of your turns you need to be winning or tied for lead, fortunately if you are not winning you can just change the winning condition to something in your favor. Really good small game looks amazing. Think Uno except really well designed.

This is the ultimate in city planning. It may not sound fun or look fun, but I am here to show you the light. This game has a bidding market where you compete for tiles to perfect your suburb. Placement of tiles is important just like the layout of a city is important. The dump shouldn't go next to a park. The game looks great and is unique in that fact that it is one of the only city building games out there.

Okay so this is like Suburbia except you build a castle instead. The game features a bidding market and then you place the tile that you purchased. Work to build the best castle. If you think Suburbia sounds cool but like castles more this is the rout to take.

Small abstract game ( think chess or Go). You place your bugs on the collective pile and try to out maneuver the enemy to get to the queen. Easy to transport and sturdy so would be good as a carry along game.
(Mainly recommended for Jake)

A simple party game where you make snap judgements about people and animals based solely on their face. You are presented with a line up of Faces and characteristics and decide what face goes with which characteristic. You are trying to match with your fellow players and be the best a stereotyping.
