Games for Christmas 2010

Kevin O'Sullivan
 
Top Cards - Pit
Top Cards - Pit
"One of the cheapest games you can buy and one that has been around since the beginning of the 20th Century but is still great at parties and family gatherings for 20 minutes of noisy chaos."
Straw
Straw
"Another card game, but with a more edge to it than Pit. A game that has proved hugely popular with my gaming group this year and one they  thought was an ideal game for Christmas."
Asmodee Editions Jungle Speed
Asmodee Editions Jungle Speed
"A variant on snap, but much more fun as all the cards look very similar with bright  geometric patterns and you have to grab a totem in the centre of the table when your cards match - sounds easy!"
Dixit Board Game
Dixit Board Game
"Each player is dealt 6 cards with unique but beautiful images. The game invites you to find imaginative ways of describing 1 card & the other players a card of theirs that matches the description."
Masquerade Party Game
Masquerade Party Game
"A variant on charades, however unlike charades the word or phrase can be the most absurd of things eg Ďthe knobbly bits on a liquorice allsortí. Rarely easy but it is always funny."
Zooloretto
Zooloretto
"In this game the aim is to stock your Zoo with a variety of well known wild animals. The components are beautiful, the animal endearing and the game play simple - winner of the 2007 Spiel des Jahres"
The Settlers of Catan Board Game
The Settlers of Catan Board Game
"The biggest selling designer board game and for very good reason.  The game mechanism ensures a lot of interaction as each player builds roads, settlements and cities on an imaginary Island."
Dominion Board Game
Dominion Board Game
"2009 Spiel des Jahres winner & an unusual but highly engaging card game that has enormous replay-ability. Set in a vaguely medieval fantasy themed world you build your Dominion"
Gamewright Forbidden Island Game
Gamewright Forbidden Island Game
"Never heard of a cooperative game? Then check this one out. The players are cast in a vaguely Indiana Jones type situation where they work as a team to find treasure before the island sinks."
Roborally
Roborally
"Itís mad and will have you tearing your hair out but is great fun; it will test you ability to plan 5 steps ahead and know right from left to the very limit. Think Wall-e on a very dangerous race."
