Im considering to get one of the possible candidates:
* Aquaretto.
* Stone Age.
* Shadows over Camlot.
* Kingsburg.

I'm looking for a game for 2-4 players mainly, with nice components, not too long(about 1 hour), and with simple rules but enough strategy so it doesn't feel like the game is playing you.

What would you recommend?

No contest.

Stone Age is a superb little game with a lot going for it, though it is deceptively simple. It is the only real "gamer's game" among the group.

Kingsburg is a decent game. Fun. Lots of choices. But a bit of a pain when played with those with analysis-paralysis.

Aquaretto is also a decent thing. If you like Mad Scientist University Course Packet: Zoology, then get it.

Shadows over Camelot is a so-so game, in my opinion. Its mechanics are all over the place, and there is not enough game there to keep me interested. To put it another way, there seems to be a lot going on as the players run in place.

Hope this helps.

Have you tried Griddly Headz. These games are strategy and challenge games with sports themes. They are easy to learn but also offer rules to grow with. Start with the family rules and then grow into the advance. The games come in 2 editions, deluxe and family. The deluxe edition is a 2 tiered board which is a lot of fun for the challenges. These games are great value in the play and in what you get.
