Hi geeks!

Every xmas, I'm in charge of providing 1 or 2 boardgames for our family gathering.

The group is made of non-gamers and light gamers only as well as a couple kids 8 and 11 years old and my loving parents (mid 70s).
Not looking for anything remotely close to a gamer's game.

I got Azul in a trade so that will be one mostly for the light gamers cohort who like to pounce on each other with a good laugh.


Second game will come down to either:

Machi Koro

or...

Camel Up 2nd edition.

Machi Koro looks as basic as a game can be... Geez, even Monopoly looks more deep than this from the reviews I watched Roll dice, collect money, build cards...

Camel Up looks pretty funny and exciting and kids will love the components... definitely look like a laughter-generator...

Any recommendations between these 2?

Easy choice for that group: Camel Up!

I own both and would go for Camel Up. My 8yo enjoys Machi Koro as well, but she loves Camel Up.

Camel Cup is amazing fun. I was skeptical before the first time, now I love it.

Thanks everyone for the recommendation!

I bought Camel Up 2nd edition yesterday and I am sure it will be an absolute winner!

Instead of Machi Koro consider Space Base
