So for me there are still 5 days till I get my presents, (being russian and so on) also my birthday is in 2 weeks. There are 3 games I really want: 7 Wonders, Quarriors and Dungeon Petz, but I think I'll be able to only get two..so what do you suggest? What games to get out of those three? Or maybe get something else.

Definitely Quarriors! Plays well with many different ages and play quickly. I do not own 7-Wonders but, from what I hear, it plays best with 3+ players. However, it a very popular game, so if you plan on playing with 3+ players, I would get that one too. Dungeon Pets is very new and I haven't heard enough about the game for an opinion.

7 wonders plays well 2-7. It's not my first choice for a 2p game, but it's fine. Since it plays 7 people, and doesn't have a lot of downtime or an extended playtime, it hits my table pretty often. I think it's a great addition to any collection.

I'm not a huge fan of quarriors. It's light and easy to teach, but it's hard for me to think of a situation where it would be the first game I'd recommend. It's non confrontational, since all the attacks are forced and hit everyone, which is a plus over Nightfall. Maybe if someone needed an intro to deck building. I prefer heavier games in general though, and a lot of people really enjoy it.

I have only heard rumors about dungeon petz.

How many players would you normally have? While some people like 7 Wonders with 2p, it becomes a very different game thanks to the shared neutral player. But it's great up to 7. Serious gamers consider it a light filler, but it can be pretty intimidating to non-gamers. It's a bit more complex than Citadels, for example.

Quarriors! has had mixed reviews. I haven't played it.

Apparently Dungeon Petz is WAY heavier than the other two, so you should weigh that into your decision. I haven't played it.
