I've recently developed an interest in getting back into board gaming after something like 7+ years mainly playing computer games. So I've dropped some hints, talked to my kids, and these are the games I KNOW will be under the tree on Christmas morning. It's a short list right now, but hopefully it will grow......

I got this as a gift to our 2 oldest sons, ages 13 and 10. Only $20 at Toys-R-Us seemed like a good deal.

My other sister and her husband have gotten this game for our 13-year old. He (and I) should be pretty busy gaming over Christmas break.

My sister who lives in Italy just sent us this as a gift for my 10-year old son. He's recently gotten interested in card games (especially Poker) so hopefully he will enjoy this. I haven't played it for ages however.

My 10-year old asked for this game by name. I have never played it, but he says it is pretty good.
