So it turns out I comlpetly forgot about selling an fx pedal last year. Last night I checked paypal and found we hed 118 in it. I put 50 in savings but now have 60 to spend on games. I do not know what to buy. I need help. I am not worried about ow many to buy, but want to get at least two. The first I need something light, thematic, easy to set up for the wife and I. Second, something a little more meaty. My wife loves TAtAN, Betrayal at House on the Hill, and A Touch of Evil but need more than 2 or take too long to set up after the baby goes to sleep. Any suggestions?

Those are 2 favorites with my fiancee and I.

You might check out Cave Troll. It's a very thematic area control game. I don't like it much with 3 or 4 but with 2 I enjoy it.

You're still young.

drugs and alcohol.

(It took me five attempts to write alcohol: is that a good sign?)

Summoner Wars: Master Set for an excellent 2 person game.

Letters from Whitechapel We just played this and found it to be a lot of fun. It's more thematic than Scotland Yard... and the components are great. Check out the board.

If you still have some change get Famiglia.

Thanks for all the advice. I went with Lord of the Rings for my wife and I, Summoner Wars and Pocket Battles.
