I'd like to find something new for tomorrow, when the group will be two 11-year old girls and three parents. The girls can both handle the complexity of games rated a few years older.
So it can't be too obscure - I'll need to find it this afternoon. There are a few FLGSs nearby in Oakland and Berkeley but I don't actually know what they carry. There's a B&N nearby which is easier to get to.
It also needs to be something fairly easy to learn.
There's a preference for games that play in under an hour.
Some possibilities are
Hanabi
No Thanks!
Bohnanza

We already play: Resistance, Forbidden Island/Desert, King of Tokyo, Pit, Love Letters.
You'll see my wish list full of Negotiation games. That's not necessarily what I'm after - but I really like heavily interactive games.
Hopefully that's enough to go on!

I'd recommend Hanabi over Bohnanza (haven't played No Thanks!).

Can't go wrong with Ticket to Ride.

Also, if there's a FLGS nearby, check to see if they have Carcassonne, Citadels, Coloretto, Tokaido.

Slightly longer than an hour, but I would also say Ticket To Ride.

Thanks for everything so far!
Ticket to Ride has not been on my radar yet but I'll look into it.
Tokaido looks right for the group.
Carcassonne I have, and I've never liked it. That's a story in itself.

TTR is a no brainer. Get Europe. A fun quick one is King of Tokyo.
