years (maybe decades) ago you recommended a board game to jeremey - he was asking for something new and addictive as his boys and he were at a stage where they were looking for such a thing. i remember him being well chuffed with your suggestion

me

have got grandparents and grandkids (neither mine) in the house for christmas and they are avid board gamers - it would be great to have something new to them in the house for them to take out their aggression as a family once i got their bellies filled with bad food

if you still have the passion and knowledge for this specialised subject would sure appreciate any tips

thief:

Not having a clue of what he suggested but I am a huge fan of SET and the other games from that maker....all card games.....
SET can get quite rowdy with a good crew of people...

DD:

Depending on his age, we play a card game called "munchkin", many variants of it as well. You can also see the comic of the guy who does the art for the game at www.dorktower.com

chilese:

SET is an excellent game.

We have well over 100 board games.

Games we play: (the first 4 are mandatory)

Acquire: (there have been at least 4 versions, we have the first and third)
