hello

mrs innocent bystander here!

hubby is having his birthday soon and has hinted heavily that he would love me more if I bought him more games...go figure!

he has given me a list but has also asked me to buy a random game for him...

so...which leads me here to the wisest of wise, gamers of games...i need some advice. based on what he already has (i think you can find a list somewhere? excuse my complete non-game geek knowledge here!) what do you think he would like or would be good for him to play?

i personally would like to get a 2+ player games so I can play it with him if that is any help!

many thanks

mrs innocent bystander aka clarekiss

I think GOA would be perfect, looking at his collection.

Ingenious is also very good, but not good if he hates abstract games.

Both of the above are 2-4 player games.

When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with

much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.

Steve secretly likes trading / negotiation games games, because he gets to act out his dream of being a used car salesman. Bohnanza, Santiago, Traders of Genoa, and Intrigue would be good presents for him.

Some random games for 2+ players (random in my mind meaning a bit different from what he has).

GemBlo, similar to Blokus you would need to order it from Europe it's not readily available in Australia.

Freya's Folly, by local designer Don Bone. plays with 3+ people though.

Walhalla: Viking theme

Kaivai 3+ players

According to his Wishlist, the only game he rates as a Must Have is Vinci. So that's the one I'd get him.

Either that, or Busen Memo.
