We're putting together a Christmas order list and want a couple of Gamewright games to add to the collection for our daughter.

The Elf left Forbidden Island last Xmas Eve and she had Sushi Go in her stocking.

The Easter Bunny left Sleeping Queens and she got Rat A Tat Cat for her 7th birthday.

She LOVES all the cards game, we haven't played Forbidden Island anywhere near as much with her.

We have Letter to Santa and Adventure Time Love Letter too, which she really enjoys

We have a few Haba games and she plays some family games with us, Jamaica, Colt Express and Camel Up being her favourites.

I've already got a stack of games stashed, but I'm stumped on which Gamewright Games to get next.

She loves dragons, pokemon and winning

All suggestions and reasons why, gratefully appreciated thumbsup

Seven Dragons, of course.

EDIT Nevermind, thought Gamewright was just a retailer. Sorry!

DOUBLE EDIT Oh! These guys do Dragonwood. That might work.

+1 on Dragonwood. It's one of their more "advanced" children's games. It's listed as 8+, but my five year old daughter really likes it.

Outfoxed is also very good, but I don't know how old your daughter is. If she plays the Pokemon TCG, then Outfoxed might be too easy for her.

The great thing about dragonwood is that I really feel like my daughter is honing her math and reasoning skills playing it. It doesn't force her to be good at it, but if she wants to do well she has to learn.

She'll be 7 1/2 at Xmas.

She doesn't do the Pokemon cards, she had a few and gave most of them away at school shake

Not a Gamewright Game, and I might get in trouble for self promotion, but Hoard will be releasing in the US in the near future and though it will be labeled age 14+, is playable by ages 6+. Theme is stealing a sleeping dragon's treasures.

Isn't a gamewright game, but it's a very fun little card game that my family really enjoys. My daughters love the art.

Loot is a hit at my house.

Tsuro of the Seas might work. my 7 y.o. boy loves it for the kaiju/dragons and ships.

Blueorange games fits right in with the Gamewright types of games.

Dr. Eureka would be my suggestion

or La chasse aux Gigamons

My daughter learned the Gamewright game Go Nuts! this weekend and had a blast with it. I think it might appear in her stocking this Christmas.
