I think those are all good games. As for price, I don't know, you probably could have found it cheaper, but not by a whole bunch. I certainly wouldn't worry about it, have fun with them!

For future reference...

i accidentally left one out! I went back and edited it

(i looked for big aisle on the links above,but didn't see it. Is it hard to find or is it not popular enough to carry?)
thanks!

Oh, and as for what else I'd recommend, I guess that depends on the age of your kids, number of players, and what all you're looking for.

I would suggest spending the remaining $40-50 on a Civ type game. Antike or Mare Nostrum seem good choices.

About your other purchases, well done. All good games and 1 outstanding (Hey! That's My Fish!)

Merry X-mas!

The list is full of terrible games. Send them to me, and I'll be sure to dispose of them appropriately.

Wow. I'd like to be at your house this Christmas.

You might want to go for a "dexterity" game with some of that last $50. Gulo Gulo, Jungle Speed and PitchCar (aka PitchCar) are the first that come to my mind.

After your family gets a chance to play these games, please come back and tell us how you liked them.

Why not Settlers of Catan? I think it's pretty simple, and I would have loved to play it as a kid.

Tumbling Dice has been getting good reviews too.

I paid full price for Hey that's my Fish and haven't regretted it.

I've looked all over for Big aisle and found it on one site, but not sure if it's secure, no referal, just googled it. (djhobby.com, anyone heard of it?)

My family (wife, 8 year-old daughter, and 4 year-old son) have recently been enjoying Winner's Circle and Queen's Necklace). Pitchcar is a good choice if you're looking for something really different.

If kids are in the 5 year-old range, I'd recommend two great ones:
Walk the Dogs
Wild Fire (domino's but cooler)

If you have boys or fantasy loving kids that like the hack and slash type of role-playing, you could do worse by just investing in a different Heroscape expansion for each of them. You know your kids better than I do, so you should chose the right expansion for each child. ebay has 43 expansions listed with ebay stores that have buy it now prices of between 10 and 20 bucks, and another 15 in regular ebay with buy it now.

Cartagena is another great game for all ages that would fit in well with your other purchases.

Thanks for all of your help. I bought Settlers of Catan for the last one. Seems like we can't go wrong with that one. Maybe it won't be too hard.
There are so many good suggestions! I'll use that list for future purchases. (The birthdays are coming...)
