I'm specifically referring to Gin Rummy here, the version for two players. I started playing alot of this between poker tournaments. If you and another player get kicked out early, this is something you can enjoy while waiting for the next tournament to start. Kinda like how players used M:tG between Titan battles, I guess.

The first in the Gipf series, and still the one to beat, in my opinion. Look at that beautiful new box!

It's hard to improve on a masterpiece. Christian Freeling did just that with Havannah, a close relation to the classic two-player, Hex. It's said that expert players prefer the 10-sided board, but the 8-sided Ravensburger board does the job for me.

There are lots of cutthroat negotiation games out there, but this one cuts through the fat and gets right to business. Check your integrity at the door. You will bleed and draw blood in this one.

The ultimate word game. Being clever helps, although oftimes I find I'm too clever by half. This game is so out of print -- I learned on someone's homemade copy, then made my own homemade copy. Chris Lohroff and I even typed up the rules so others could make their own homemade copies. A lost gem. Worthy of a much wider audience.

Originally published as Hol's der Geier, but this is the version where I first learned the game. The game that first taught me how much fun could be squeezed into so few rules.

Another game that I'm not very good at, but that I enjoy playing immensely. I'm a particular mess playing this face to face, since I'm used to playing it at BSW and letting the computer do all the work for me. A cardgame that you can really sink your teeth into.

A why-didn't-I-think-of-that kind of game. A simple idea with few rules, but it always seems to provide a delicious tension. Can you finish before time runs out?

A fantasy wargame that really is simpler than it appears. I'm relatively new to the game and I'm looking forward to exploring the oodles of strategy promised herein. When I used to play D&D for weekends at a time, I have to admit I mostly loved the die-rolling combat. The stories could be interesting, but I was there more for the hack and slash. Even though it is a long game, Titan gives me that in much less time than your average D&D campaign.

I firmly believe I've been involved in some of the most interesting games of Werewolf ever played. Not to mention the Anthony Rubbo/Frank DiLorenzo classic that was recorded live for your enjoyment. This game can go bust if in the wrong hands. It can also go stale if played too many times by the same people in a short time. But when it's good ... it's GREAT.
