Killer Bunnies looks like a collectable card game, but it's not. It has all the interesting strategies of CCGs, but the cards are all tongue-in-cheek. Very whimsical. Don't forget the expansion packs to play with the Ancient Star Rod!

A great Knizia game. Quick, but forces balance. If you try to start too many expeditions you won't be able to pull them all off and end up in the hole. If you don't start enough of them, your opponent will win.

Mystery Rummy is the most intriguing variation of rummy I've seen. The Jack the Ripper variant plays very nicely. It takes a bit to learn the rules, but the effort is worth it.

Play Caesar or Cleopatra in this battle for the senators. You can't play passively in this game!

A game of quick transitions. You think you're up on points and then suddenly your opponent has more temples than you do. Requires quick thinking and decisiveness.

Playing cards with letters instead of numbers and suits. Contains a rule book with lots of games, including some solitaire ones. If that's not enough, look up "Lexicon" on this site and play a bunch more games.
