Hi all. I am coming to the conclusion that my favourite games tend to be relatively simple with pretty short rules, easy mechanics that let me enjoy the game, not fight it and not a lot of downtime to set up and play.

I am very partial to RPG style games prefer theme even if it is pasted on and wargames but also love some Euros and a few card games.

I want to put together a wishlist to focus on getting the right type of games so can you make your suggestions here please? What are your fav's that meet my criteria?

This is pretty good on theme, is kind of role-play-ish, and is just a good, but fairly easy to play game.

This one isn't very RPG-ish, but it's got theme, it's simple, and most importantly, it's really really fun.

If you like TtR and Dominion, then I'm guessing you might also like this. All three games are hits with our family.

Ra is very quick to set up, plays in around 45 minutes, and has very little downtime. Going through the rules the first time might be a bit confusing, but by the end of the first game you'll probably have all the rules down no problem.
