Nothing like this is up, so I was wondering what games will get played tonight and tomorrow to ring in the new year? I'll post my likely table hitters... Feel free to add yours!

Happy New Years! Here is to a prosperous and healthy d10-2d10-0d10-0d10-9!

I'm sure this will hit, due to the likely newbs that will come over tonight! It is all good though, it is fun.

Light and encourages group interaction.

I love Bohnanza. It is a lot of fun and with the newbs this should be a popular one.

This one is light, but a step up from the previous two. I would put $20 on this one hitting the table tonight.

A new hot game in our house. This will continue the trend into some heavier games, but still friendly to non gamers and newbs.

Many of the non gamers know how to play, so this maybe a possibility.

This has an excellent chance to hit the table. Easy, but has a bit more competitiveness embedded into the game.

My night will be complete if I could round up some people for a 4-5 player game of El Grande. I'm doubting here, but stranger things have happened.

We have a six-player marathon planned for New Years Day, starting at 10 AM! 1941 scenario, playing to 13 victory cities, with research and national objectives included. In a neat twist, we have for the first time in our group a father-son combination playing - I'm interested to see if they plan on playing on the same side, or as bitter enemies!

I have a few coming over that are gamers and this may have a good chance of hitting the table. This is a new one for me, and I'm loving it!

We're having a party this evening with folks who don't normally play games, so we're going to go the "party game" route tonight. The thing is, I want to introduce Time's Up! and Wits and Wagers to the group; my wife, on the other hand, would prefer to go with something a little more familiar, like CatchPhrase or Scattergories.

Chances are, we'll play one of those other games. But I'm really going to push for Time's Up! It's a perfect drinking/snacking/ringing in the new year sort of game.
