Looking for a simple, introductory pick up and deliver game that can be fun for non-gamers, but which also provides enough oomph so that gamers will at least tolerate playing it, if not outright like it. Both of these look interesting to me. (Doesn't hurt that Tahiti is on sale today at CSI).

Trollhalla looks fun, and I'm really liking Fantastiqa by the same designer. But maybe it's more of a kid's game? Tahiti looks simple, but I wonder if that works against it.

I can't decide so any opinions would be appreciated.

I haven't played Tahiti, but I will say that Trollhalla is definitely not just a kid's game.

I have played Tahiti but not Trollhalla. My impression from reading about Trollhalla is that it has more direct screwage than Tahiti, which may be a plus or minus for you.

My favorite lighter-but-interesting game, which happens to be pickup-and-deliver, is Africana. So that would be my recommendation.
