Hi,

I'm in the BGG Secret Santa again this year. I never have a problem spoiling my receipient, but I'm having a hard time filling my Wishlist this year.

I typically play games solo. I don't mind games that require me to play as two people, provided it works for the game.

Sometimes I play with a group of 3. Very rarely would it be more than 4 players.

I'm not crazy about dice rolling or games that involve a ton of luck.

I own a lot of the top 100 games.

Some of my favourites include Terra Mystica, Terraforming Mars, Gloomhaven, etc.

I'm wondering if you have recommendations for games I've missed.

If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

Thanks!

What about a racing game. I'm not sure this would actually be considered a racing game, but it could be I think. Looks like you don't have this on your list. I don't have it and have not played it, but it's on my wishlist after read and watching some reviews.

Definitely a racing game. Lighter than K2 though.

Or a new mechanism, that maybe you haven't (or have) played.

Or an AP prone card game. Simple, yet lots of strategy.
