Palabra
For: My Wife

My wife is a huge Scrabble fan. So much so that aside form Boggle (yuck!!) I can't get to play anything else. I'm hoping this will be a hit. It has all the feel of scrabble yet I can still compete.

Memory
For: My Daughter

My daughter is now 2 1/2 and it is time to try and start teaching her to play some games. This was one of the stepping stones for my son.

Apples to Apples Junior! 9+
For: My Son

Being only 5 1/2 this might be a bit beyond his reading level but I plan on using it as a teaching tool and I know the Junior edition will wear-out its welcome a lot faster.

My sister and I are Shakespeare buffs so I bought two copies - one for myself and one as a stocking stuffer for her.

The game looks interesting but it would probably only be of interest to someone who knows the play since it turns many of one's conceptions of the characters on their head.

I wonder they didn't make any sequels, i.e. Romeo and Juliet, King Lear, MacBeth, etc.
