I need some ideas on what game to buy for my gf for christmas. So, I bring this challenge to the world of the nerds. What game will make her melt!!! You may rely on past experience, future endeavor, past life, future self, or magic lettering in your alphabet soup. I care not where your sage wisdom arises, but please find it in your hearts to lend me your thoughts!

Simple facts about said GF that may help to distinguish her board gamey aphrodisiac:
1) She did not play games before she met me, but she likes them a lot now!
2) She doesn't like to lose, so it makes it all the more sweet and bitter when I win.
3) She likes ultimate frisbee a lot and plays competitively.
4) She likes goats... its wierd. She calls them cute.
5) She is cute n' short.
6) She has a huge family that pretty much all have ADD so it is impossible to play a game with them other than uno, which usually breaks down into crying and someone throwing up.
7) She likes boats.
8) She sometimes hears the call of cthulhu, but thats just me in the other room with my optimus prime helmet on.


OK, that is all!

She has gotta love me!

Now this would be endearing if it didnt have a creepy dinobaby on the cover and remind me of bad Fox TV.

AKA not a good idea as a gift...

You may get her family to play Baohnanza. It is simple and fun. There is constant interaction and you can make favorable trades to her causing her to win.

Bang is even simpler than Bohnanza and you get to "shoot" her family and "bang" your GF.

It has boats. It has pretty gems. It will send you in a sweeping pull of raw river power to your doom. She'd love it.

12. Board Game: Lost Cities [Average Rating:7.15 Overall Rank:294]

Lost Cities has no goats or boats but is a good card game (for 2 players, although 2 decks allow 4 to play). It's fairly easy to make some bad moves which will help your gf win and she won't even know you let her. (Works with my wife and she keeps wanting to play.)

I second the vote for Niagara. Fun, clever and attractive board, and you move your little boats up and down the Niagara River collecting jewels.

A fun game for the family to play would be Formula De'. Instead of boats you have little race cars and you roll dice and move your cars around a track trying to edge each other or cut each other off. Plays up to 10 players. My family likes it.
