Hi! I am a Knizia fan, and while I have several of his board games, I only have two of his card games Circus Flohcati and Friday the 13th that I quite enjoy.

What are some other Knizia card games I should have a look at?

I agree with many of these and would also add Katzenjammer Blues, which is excellent for 2 or 3, Masters Gallery, a very good card game version of Knizia's classic Modern Art, and Hungry, a nice 2-player game.

Since these are all older titles, finding copies can be an issue. You may want to check out Gryphon's Bookshelf games. These include Money, Gem Dealer (aka Ivanhoe), High Society, Masters Gallery, and another Knizia card game, Looting London, which is supposed to be pretty good. The Gryphon version of these games is a bit pricey, but they're nicely produced and should be easy to obtain.

Good call on the Gryphon editions. Pricey is the word, but its not insane.

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

A few more that haven't been mentioned yet:

Great Wall of China (a relative of Loot and Ivanhoe with elements of Samurai)

Penguin Party (very simple but good)

Wildlife Safari (some versions are a bit overproduced so may not look like a card game)

En Garde (same remark as above, and maybe not a pure card game as the players manoeuver their fencer on a linear track)

Times Square (with a bit more board play yet than En Garde)

I just wanted to say thanks for the suggestions! I'll be busy with these lists for awhile.

Cheers!
