I've been quite an euro gamer and insisted on that heavy euro games rock no matter what. However, I recently started thinking casual & easy-to-teach & easy-to-carry games are as good as heavy euro ones.


http://www.boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/pluus

this is the list of the games I have. I believe there are some missing games... but believe it's covering 90% of what I currently have.


I really loved avalon:resistance, coloretto, archaeology, sushi go, my happy farm, for sale, incan gold, and etc. I'm also planning on buying cloud 9 soon. Any recommendations for me?


It doesn't have to be card games... light & simple casual games are fine too.

Monopoly Deal Card Game

It is the best version of Monopoly. Quick and easy to learn. Games also play out nice and quick. No roll and move.

I've really been into Murder of Crows and Piñata lately. Both easy to learn and very addicting.

I'd definitely recommend Tooth & Nail if you can track it down.

Stone & Relic and The Valkyrie Incident are also worth considering.

3. Smash Up (loads more complicated, a good accessible primer for CCG mechanics).

I can highly recommend Smash Up. The rules are SUPER simple and you can grow and develop with it to end up pulling off some insane combos and fairly deep strategy!Smash Up

It's also got loads of replayability.
