I want to purchase a game for my aunt in law but she won't have a lot of folks to play with. I was thinking Agricola because it does support both multi players and singlelayers. The lynch pin however here is she doesn't speak or read English and so games not in Russian or that require in game text reading are out.

Thoughts?

Thanks
William

One last tour here on the Death Star and I can retire. What was that noise?!

Race for the Galaxy plus Race for the Galaxy: The Gathering Storm

gives you language independance and both solitaire and multi-player (some would say multi-player solitaire) play.

I am not optimistic that your aunt-in-law will be into the sci-fi theme, but I still want to put it out there. shake

Or does Friday exist in Russian?

Looking at the components, it doesn't look too text-heavy, and under language dependence it says "Some necessary text - easily memorized or small crib sheet".

Thank you all. I've got some ideas now and should have a good pick soon. Still thinking though.

Thank you all again!
