I'm about to have a Grand Opening of our new gameroom and need suggestions on the first games we should play to commemorate the opening.

I need recommendations for solo, 2 player, and for game night (3+ player)

I don't log my plays or have ratings but my collection is up to date.

Tell me what I should play for each of these categories either from my collection or not. Share why I should consider your recommendation for the first game to be played in the new room.

Thanks for the contributions!

This gets my vote for 2 player. This is a fantastic game when you only have 2 players, less than an hour and need to scratch your worker placement itch. Love it!

The solo game should be Gears of War. One reasons is because the video game is awesome and they are coming out with a new one hopefully this year. Two, you need to defend your new space from the horde whether it is monsters or mongol invasion.

2 player game should be Robinson Crusoe. You will have time reminisce about how long it took to build the basement and then remember how much better it is now than running from cannibals on the island.

3+ I will go with Tsuro fun light game, that anyone can learn, play, and have fun doing it.

2-Player: Biblios or Jaipur. Both great with two

You could use tracks from either thread for some fun racing action.
