At the start of this year I moved back to my hometown in Wisconsin for a short while as my wife is deployed overseas to be close to family. I thought I would be moving to a gaming wasteland. Thankfully that has not been the case. My neice and my nephews have show an intrest in games. Below is what we have played along with some games I plan on bringing them in the future.

I believe this was the first game that my family was introduced to. My daughter and my mother played this quite a few times and my neice also joined in. My daughter found that Grandma doesn't mess around when it comes to games.

When visiting the family before moving back we brought this game along with us. This caused my neice much frustration. Something that was over come as she was finally involved in a winning session.

Not so much my nieces favorite game as her daughters. She loves to play this with her uncles. Although I made the mistake of calling the pictured penguin the "pull my finger penguin". 5 year olds pick up all the wrong things.

This was a big hit. My niece, nephews and their girlfriends all enjoyed it. Its amazing how sneaky/vicious a seventeen year old girl can be. Makes me worry about when my daughter gets that old.

This was fun however I think it plays a little too quick for it to make it to the table.

Another one that my nephews enjoyed. Pretty sure it is because of the conflict that occurs in the game.

I had never seen anyone not get a single piece out of the dungeon before I played my niece. I don't think she will want to play again. Hopefully I am wrong.

For now I think this is the last one I will introduce to them. I am not sure they would go for games much deeper or complex than the ones I have on this list. But who knows, by the end of the year we may be playing...
