A fan of new Knizia games
Chrononauts - found a copy of this for a ridiculous price, but I couldn'tresist. Quick "draw a card, play a card" game that I did enjoy. Not the last word in game design, but looks good, plays cleanly, and is generally amusing (the "obvious" forgery of the Mona Lisa and the videotape of the creation of the Universe both cracked me up). However, some events are a bit too recent recent and graphic, and don't sit well with the rest of the game (for me, anyway).

Janet beat me easily in the first game, really really easily, by getting back to her "time anomaly". It was part way through the second game when we realised that in order to claim victory, each anomaly has to be patched. Ah ha! This wondrous discovery lengthened the game considerably and gave the other victory conditions a chance. I managed a win by patching enough ripplepoints to bump my hand size to 10 cards. Fun game, too expensive here in Oz, but glad I picked it up.
