Hello all!

Earlier this week I played Incan Gold with my family for the first time. My sister really liked it and has asked if there are any other games like it that she should try. It is her birthday soon and I thought I would check with the community here on what other "push your luck" types games you might recommend. As a side note, she also loves Catan, and Dominion so she has varied tastes. Thanks!

Shouldn't you be playing a game with me instead of wasting time on the Internet?

Ra allows for player interaction
Can't Stop is good too

Ra has a pretty strong push-your-luck element.

Can't Stop is a purely push your luck game with dice. I think it's out of print though (though a lot of them were made, so it's usually not to hard to track one down.

Pickomino is another dice-based game that might work.

ninjaed!

Well, except for Pickomino. I'm helping!

If she likes Incan Gold, she might like The Adventurers: The Temple of Chac.

Can't Stop and Pickomino are both realy good games with a lot of "risk calculation"

Stone Age was also such an element but is more a not to heavy strategy game (as settlers). So it might be the right mixture of risk/luck and strategy/development for her.
