Hello everyone!
I'm hoping to find some good PnP games here to make for Xmas presents this year for family and friends. There are no war-gamers among the bunch, and I doubt I'd be able to convert them to wargames. So my question: in a group of otherwise not experienced gamers, what are some of the better PnP games available?

Interesting games I am considering so far:
Knizia's Decathlon
Roboderby Express
Falling
Deck of Thieves
Space Junkyard
Island Trader

Would love to hear thoughts from people who've playtested some of the best PnP games

Livestock market

Ballooncup

Sanzaru

all available via Artscow

I have found them all easy to learn and a hit with non-gamers.

I play games not to win, it's the gathering that's important - Thanks for the tip Cate108!

Check out No Good Gremlins. The game consist of cards only, so it should be an easy build for you.

Good luck!

BSG Express
The Big Time!
Pixel Tactics

All 3 are brilliant games, all three are pretty easy to learn. I recommend The Big Time all the time. IMHO, it's the best PNP game out there.
