What games have you introduced to friends that they have proceeded to buy?


Please add games to the list and thumb any games that you have had success with.


I'm always looking for good games to introduce to my friends. I've had some success but I'm open for new games to help convert more of my friends to potential gamers.

It would also be interesting to see which games are the most successful to introduce to your friends, gamers and non-gamers alike.

This one has been successful. I've had one friend purchase this shortly after playing it with me and my roommates.

This one is pretty good with a non-gamer crowd. There's enough strategy for those that like it and enough luck for those that don't. Two friends have bought it.

Same couple that bought Bohnanza after playing it with us, also bought Agricola after playing it with us a few times. And even though they've had it about six months, I don't think they have taken it out of the shrink wrap as they're always playing my copy.

I bought and introduced this to our game group. I hated it and was going to trade it. One of the guys in the group decided to buy it off me. So in a round about way this fits the list.

Brought this to a game night and the host(ess) was impressed with its possibilities as a good light filler and something to play with non-gamers.

Upon more thought... THREE people ended up buying this (including the game-loving family I mentioned above).

Our friends were over for games and pizza. After a warm up of euchre (we are in Michigan after all) I introduced them to Ticket to Ride, thumbed above.
They then asked for recommendations for family games. Their children are the same ages as ours (5 &8) so this favorite of my kids was suggested. One play and they bought it.

Played several hands of this over at their house and it was immensely popular, although their insistence of calling it 'the pizza game' might have caused them a little trouble at the store.

Apart from the confusion in the first learning round, easily overcome, this has generally been a very popular light game for groups in the vicinity. I have to find a copy of the new plus version and see whether the extra ingredient improves the game or not.
