Any of these games I'd be happy to get for Christmas. I haven't played any of them except as noted below.

I'd like to get at least one game that works well with large groups. I also want to get games that my wife and I would enjoy playing together since usually it's just the two of us playing. Her game philosophy is summed up in our post-mortem after she whipped me in Union Pacific last night. Me: "My strategy this time was to jump on one stock and try to make you third in it [we play the Track 20 variant], and it worked but it wasn't enough in the end. What's your strategy?" Her: "Have fun." Conclusion: brainburners aren't going to be "fun."

Any suggestions welcome!

This is my big ticket item. Hope it isn't too backstabbing as a 2-player game, DW hates that.

This is a dumb re-theming of a game I've wanted to get for a long time.

Tried this once with regular playing cards and she wasn't impressed. Maybe thematic cards will help.

Usually religious-themed "sanitized" versions of popular secular items are crap, be it games, music, T-shirts, what-have-you. This though is apparently one of the best of the Carcassonne variants. I'll be glad to not have explain farmers and maybe I can get more friends from church involved in games with this one.

This looks like it could be fun for larger groups, but not as long and simpler to explain than regular Formula De.

Maybe this would be something DW would like. She does like LOTR.

Another game I've had my eye on for a while, there are enough 2-player variants to give this a try.
