I've been browsing BBG for awhile and I wanted to ask a question regarding finding suitable games my girlfriend would enjoy that has a bit more of a "cutesy" theme.

She LOVES Hey That's My Fish and it's the first game she goes to when she wants to play a board game. She also enjoyed Dixit mainly due to the artwork and bunny tokens and Aquaretto due to the ability to make 'babies' (she's a teacher; these things can't be helped).

I was wondering if anyone has any good board game recommendations that would appeal to her? Ideally they would be best for two players, but any number players would be extremely helpful

Thank you in advance

Shear Panic has overly cute little sheep. The game play is that of an abstract strategy game.
Ninja Versus Ninja is another abstract game that has cute little miniatures, this time ninjas.

Though my favorite game that has a cute theme, but can still be fun is duck! duck! Go!. This is a rubber duck racing game.

Check out ...

Kingsburg ... very colorful board and clever use of dice and ... my wife likes it a lot.

Pastiche ... I recently ordered this one with the wife in mind though I haven't received it yet.

Evo ... I hope this is the right link (there was no date after this one). The game was originally released with rather cartoony art but the one released last year has beautiful, more serious art. The game is easy to learn and my wife like this one as well.

Kingdom Builder ... the art isn't fabulous but the game is quick and fun and the wife ...

Good luck with your quest.

Thanks for all your helpful replies!

Duck! Duck! Go! and Takenoko look like games that would appeal to her, same with Botswana. I recently purchased Evo, but haven't played it yet.

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

If you can still find a copy, Timber Tom was a joy to look at and is quite fun to play.

SUTAKKU might be worth a look. Great dice and very simple and fast game play.

Wasabi! is another nice game, but not sure of availability.

Hope you find something that you both like!

She might enjoy If Wishes Were Fishes!, another cute game involving fish (and really, who doesn't like rubber worms?). Finca may also be an option. Does Valdora count as cute? The books are certainly fun anyway.

And +1 to Evo; that was the first thing I thought of when I saw this post, that is, if you can get the older edition. My understanding is that the newer one is considerably less cute, but I haven't played with it myself.

Château Roquefort is a kids game, but adults can also find it enjoyable, specially wives who like cutesy stuff.
Jamaica is also visually appealing, light and fun, though it maybe works slighty better with more than two players.

Finca has cool wooden fruit pieces
Marrakech has a bunch of little carpets that you play on the board.
A la carte has little pots and stoves and spice bottles. But I'm not sure how great it is two player, we always have more.

I'm not sure why this cracks me up as much as it does.
