Recently, I started browsing BGG again, after nearly a year absence.
It had become more and more difficult to get my friends together for game nights, despite all of them seeming to like the new games I was introducing them to. Some of them have multiple younglings and the others are newly married or engaged which was making it harder and harder to meet up. So I grew weary of reading about and lusting over new games on BGG when I had games that remained unplayed for lack of opportunity. I turned my attentions to my online gaming on my Wii, PS3 and MOSTLY my Xbox360. The 360 is mostly responsible for encouraging me come back to BGG. After buying Catan, Carcasonne and most recently Lost Cities on the Xbox Live arcade, I got the itch again. I got all my games out of storage and set them out right next to my Sofa. MY S.O. (who has always been disinterested in playing games with me) asked why I had brought them out. Without being too forward, I somehow managed to lure her into a couple games of Blokus and Carc: H&G. She seemed to almost, I say, almost enjoy it.
So, with my games sitting beside me, the possibility open to perhaps convince my girlfriend to play more games, and a renewed desire to congregate my friends for some gaming ...
I thought maybe I should buy some new games, yeah, I could browse those Geeklists of good 2-player Wife/S.O. games, and maybe even get some games I always wanted to play with my friends too!!

So Here is My 1st Geeklist, and all the new games I ordered over the Memorial Day weekend.

Playing this a few times on Xbox Live is what got me browsing BGG again. Plus it should be easy to the S.O. to play as long as I am the scorekeeper.

Keeping with cards games, something light that upscales well. Hopefully the silly Bean art will be a plus.

Enough card games. She already likes Blokus, so a colorful abstract sounds good. Opted for the travel version for the size mostly. If it's a big enough hit with us, I can alway buy the full version for more people.

Well, this one isn't exactly working towards my goal of steadily increasing complexity of games, is it? To be honest, I'm not entirely sure why I decided to get this. I do have a young niece who will like to play this with us, plus it has Vampires.

I've only ever played this game online. I really enjoy it despite never being that good at it. I hope to play this with friends as well as test the GF's patience and ability to 'see' the routes.

I've alway wanted this game, but somehow missed out that it was picked up by Z-Man games. I can see this being fun with my friends.

Always wanted this one too. Comes highly recommended and maybe I can learn to play it with the GF before introducing it to my friends.

My GF has always seemed fascinated with Jack the Ripper. Seems strange to me for a woman to be anything but repulsed by the thought of a notorious butcher of women was never caught, especially since my name is Jack. Bought this one specifically for her, so she has no excuse not to play. Well, at least, not an excuse I will accept.
