I was just thinking...most of the time when I'm playing games, it is with my wife. There are some games she hates, whereas she can't get enough of others. Sound familiar? List those games you are always playing with your significant other.

I can't go without mentioning my own game...seeing as my wife was forced to playtest Linwood whenever I made changes during the design phase. The game's all finished now, and we still play it a lot!

We don't play this much these days, but there was a time when we played at least two games a day, five-six times a weeks...no exaggeration there either!

Card games are the best for playing in bed. Skip-Bo is a perfect game to end the day on.

Bananagrams has displaces our usual perennial favorite, Scrabble. Once upon a time we also played a lot of Cribbage.

My wife's other favorites for the two of us are Carcassonne: The Castle, San Juan, Bohnanza, and Louis XIV.

My wife, God bless her, will play just about any game I want to play, although she has very little interest in my extensive wargame collection. We play cribbage a lot, as well as various permutations of Munchkin. Merchant of Venus is her favorite board game, though, and she often asks for this one to hit the table.

Despite the multitude of ways to score this is actually a pretty simple game that can be taught quickly. We played it five times the first night we had it and it hits the table regularly.

My wife's favorite games include Qwirkle, Citadels, Nertz, Ticket to Ride (1910), and Talisman (4th ed). She'll play pretty much anything, but these are the games she actually requests. (She's also mentioned that she'd like to play Nexus Ops again) I love this game; it's like a big box fantasy adventure game, but at the same time it's a casual game that can be played without burning your brain too much.
