I am looking for recommendations regarding games that have cards as a main component.

I own bang, lost cities, san jaun, bohnanza, odin's ravins, queen necklace, guillotine, and citadels already. Would appreciate suggestions.

I just read that Family Business was released by Mayfair today. If you like Bang! you're sure to like this game of mobs in the 1920s.

If you buy it, make sure and use the variant suggested here where you form your mob into a hierarchy "family" with the boss at the top. That way if someone kills your boss you go after him with both guns loaded, see?

A fun little game.

Clocktowers is a nice filler. Have only tried it with two players so far.

I really like Edel Stein & Reich, but it's something of an acquired taste.

I'd recommend Jambo. It's a fun 2-player card game that my wife really enjoys too.

Coloretto, Mu and Muhr, Cthulhu 500, Gloom, Groo (oop), Illuminati, any of the Mystery Rummies, Oriente, and Battle Line. I'd recommend Coloretto, battle Line and Illuminati out of these, along with Colossal Arena that was mentioned earlier.
