My wife's uncle is an old wargamer. He would be interested in trying a game again. His wife is Phillipino.

Aside from Conquest of Paradise (GMT), can the BGG community help me out with recommendations?

The game does not need to be a wargame. He would play a Euro with a phillipino theme.

Thanks

Tongiaki: Journey into the Unknown comes to mind.

Edit: it seems my geography knowledge and or memory has failed me. Tongiaki is Polynesian.

Filipino Fruit Market

Never tried this, but the designer named it for his Filipino wife. The two games in this set are not traditional Filipino games, however.

fyi, it's Philippines with two P's, but when referring to the people or the language, it's Filipino. (example: "I am Filipino" and "I speak Filipino")

This one is a card game that nearly everyone knows how to play over here:

If he doesn't mind a little creative license, you could try Chinatown and pretend it's the Divisoria shopping mall
