Ok, let me start by saying my wife isnt a "gamer" but she has enjoyed Dominion, Ghost Stories, Catan, Theophrastus, and others.

well...maybe she is a gamer, but doesnt want to admit it.

anyways, quite a while ago i DL'd TTR on our iphones when it was free. i told her all about it and thought she would really like it. she never looked at it, or played it.

last weekend we went out to dinner with some friends, and they came back to our house "with a great new game" he heard about online. i chuckled a bit.

we play a game, and everything went well.

so yesterday, the wife asks "didnt you put that train game on my phone?"
i tell her yes, and show here where it is. she winds up playing all day, and even bought the game for her macbook when the battery died in her phone.

she asks if i want to play against her, and i agree only to get my ass kicked. two times in a row! (i won the 3rd game)

now i need to figure out how to parlay this into a game of arkham horror.

She is going to burn herself out too quickly with the electronic version. You better get to work. Try Airlines Europe, then Fury of Drac, then Arkham Horror.

You might also consider Union Pacific, which is much like Airlines Europe but with a train theme.
