Y'know, it's hard trying to please everybody. There are so many games I want, yet due to both the lack of resources and the fear of being unappealing to my "immediate" gaming family, I have to choose carefully. I was going to go into a biographical description of each person I game with and their favorites; I think I'll just shorten that up a bit and share their age, along with a few of that person's favorites:

1. My wife (37) : Coloretto, Mexica, Union Pacific, Kingdoms
2. My son (6): Carcassonne, Coloretto, Tikal (sometimes)
3. My daughter (9): Carcassonne, Mamma Mia!
4. My mom (49): Princes of Florence, Bohnanza, Ra
5. My dad (58): Ra, ZERTZ, Medici, Puerto Rico
6. Me (31): Puerto Rico, El Grande, Taj Mahal, Coloretto
7. My friends: Generally anything I throw at them.

So here's the question: What can I purchase next that will have a broad appeal for all of these people? Feel free to add any games that stand out, or to comment on what I'm proposing.

I've played this once and thought it was great, is the appeal broad enough? I can pick this up locally from a guy I know who runs an internet-based gaming store (at regular price, even). So I'm very tempted. Will it be worth it, though?

Here's the other OOP that I can get my hands on from my friend. I don't think my kids would be into it really, but everyone else I've listed might. What do you think?

This one seems like it would fit the bill. I personally don't mind dry, but would this be a big disappointment for others who like theme?

Essentially the same argument as Clans. Plus, I've heard from some that it's not exactly a game, more like an exercise. Is this fun? I mean, will it appeal?

OK, so this one's kinda selfish. Still, both my mom and dad like auction games...my wife kind of does, too. I'm not justifying here or anything.

I've heard that Royal Turf is a blast, and would seem to have a broad appeal.

Everyone seems to be a fan of lighter card games on my list...how does this stack up in terms of replayability?
