This list is dedicated to everyone who whines about their wives and girlfriends not playing games with them. (And umm, I have no sympathy for anyone so please keep that in mind. It's one of those neurological disorders). Also, this is just the the counter-intuitive games she'll play. We've got plenty we probably like more ... but I'd be surprised if there are many wives playing these. (PS - you guys who can't convince your wife and girlfriend to play may have PERSONAL issues to blame. If I had a dead horse, I'd be beating it now.)

Not a favorite but it still hits the table every now and then. She plays Kelts and I have Alchemists. Her massive centaur charge will bring pain upon you!

All sorts of rules in this game. You've got to look up practically every card because they're not intuitive. The bidding means one player could potentially win every single item! She'll play this 2-4 - how's that for cutthroat?

Another game that can be played with the Confrontation minis, Hybrid has the "Heroquest that isn't gay" thing going for it. She loves it despite the fact I tend to massacre her with cheesoid tactics.

Maybe it's the spooge factor but this awkward game is a huge favorite with her.

My wife always beats me at this. It's probably due to how unbalanced the tiles are. Either that or because she kicks ass. I don't know... but I do know she builds her own pile of tiles on this.

Ha! Talk about a game that makes people fight (when played with house rules). My wife and I have seen a number of couples break up because they played this game... and evil as it is, I'm sure she'd play it again. In fact, she brought up the possibility the other day...

Carcassonne for people with many years left on their life. She loves playing this despite it taking so long.

She's the 'nids... and absolutely adores the game. We play a campaign of it every blue moon or so.

I'll admit it... she likes painting the miniatures (perhaps more than playing but we did do this professionally for many years so there's some nostalgia there). But she digs firing flamers and burning 'nids too.

And the one I suspect will make you mega-geeks cry. She's pulled this out more than I have. Haha.

I do have to say that getting the wife into painting and collecting aspect was one of the better moves, even if her archers do eat me for lunch. After she got hooked on this, Eurogames were an easy sell.

For six hours. Starting at 8:30 PM. At a gaming session that was nominally her birthday party. So nyah.
