I need a new game to play with my wife. Here are her preferences to help with any suggestions:

1) She likes dice. But she does not like dice with numbers. She prefers dice with pictures of animals, preferably young animals that are domesticated but generally stay outside.

2) She likes games about farming, but she does not like games that involve growing crops of foods that she does not like. For instance, she would hate a game if one of the crops featured in the game was onions or eggplant.

3) She likes games where tiles or tokens are placed on the board, but only if the token is generally the same shape as the spot in which the token/tile is placed. For instance, she refuses to play checkers because the checkers are round, but the spaces are squares.

4) She likes games with a lot of colors. But she will not play the game of all three primary colors are ever within one square inch of each other. Also, if a blended color is ever on the board, its complimentary primary color must be within a radius of two inches.

5) She likes cards in games. However, she will only play if discard rules never permit the number of cards in the discard pile to ever be a prime number. She is fine if the draw pile has a prime number, but the draw pile must remain on the opposite side of the board.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

Why dice? Just throw small animals.

Wow. What about At the Gates of Loyang? No dice, but it might work.

Thanks. But suggested games arent really necessary. If you got a laugh, that is all I was after.
