My girlfirend is used to playing TP and monopoly (and Gifttrap once). So I'm trying to get her into boardgames. But you can't win if you don't have a plan, so here is the plan:

1. Play different games to see what she likes
2. Try a few hardcoreversions of games she already likes
3. Cross my fingers....

(I hope my english isn't too bad...)

I brought this game along and showed it to her. Later that day she asked for it and we started playing after a brife runtrough of the rules. But we didn't get to finish. Come to think of it we could trie this one again, but I don't think it is going to be a hit.

I saw this game up at her loft a asked if she wanted to play it. She did, and after 3 games we had had enough.

I brought this a long on a trip with her friends and on the first evning all of us played it. With 10 people that are paying attention it is really fun and I think she liked it. Plus I think she liked the fact that I could explain the rules to all of her friends.
Thinking back she might even have won...

(It's the Euopean version called "6 nimmt!" that we played)

This was the first real test because this is my favorit game of all times. I don't think she fully got the rules, but she is willing to play it again and so are the two friends of hers that we played it with.

At thius point I'm fairly pleased, and getting hopefull.

We decided to see a movie and went to town. I had been planing ahead and brought Jack with me. So while we were waiting for the movie to start we tried Jack the Ripper and it was almost a hit. I think it would have been a hit had I been better at explaining the rules conserning minuspoints at the end of the game.
Gonna give this one another try.

Mistake!!!
Some friends of mine came over one day, and they wanted to play PG. Boy was that a dumb idea. Even though we played with the Benelux map it was to much math for her. Too early. *Sigh* I should have been more patient.

I bought this and gave it a try.
Yay! Sucsess
She was thinking hard and winning, hard as well. But it's a little bit draining so she won't play this without a clear head.

I'm also bringing Bohnanza to the trip. It has a lot of interaction and more action than Pickomino.
