Great game about the election in 1960 between Kennedy and Nixon. A lot of flavour and theme. The game is pretty simple. You send your candidate to different states to gain votes or you can trigger different historical episodes that will help your candidate. There are also other aspects to manage like media. The only thing I wish was better is the debate, I don't think it is important enough and it should also be a better "build up" to the great debate. I think this could be fixed with a great houserule though.

One of the best Knizia games for me. The mechanic used to bid on the land areas works wonderfully. I also think it is cool that before the 2nd part of the game, people lose their areas, and you have to bid again to get them. It makes the game tense and interesting. **Update; it didn't hit the table in 7 years so I let it go. Maybe I will regret it, if so, I will just buy it again.

This is the best partygame for me. Played with the right people no game makes me laugh harder than this one. I hate players that try to be funny though; players that write crazy answers on purpose. That's not funny! One of the best things with this game is that there is no limit when it comes to creativity. Awesome game.

The ultimate stacking game. Jenga used to be my favorite game in this genre, but now Bandu (Bausack) is the new king. There are so many different blocks to place on your structure, which gives the game a lot of variation. The blocks are beautiful, and I always want to take a picture of the winning tower. The game is simple, but a lot of fun, and there is also some tactics thrown in (auction). A must buy.

Generally I love push-your-luck games, and this one is the best of them imo. To see your friends draw two elephants out of the bag is great fun, and it makes me laugh every time. The monkey is a nice twist to the game, as you have the chance to swap it with any other player's top tile.

Underrated 2 player game. It is usually very tense. Two of my favorite mechanics are included, memory and bluffing, so how can I not like this one. One cool thing is that a game of Dracula can last from 1 minute to 40 minutes. Might be a 10 for me, time will show.

Very solid game. Had high hopes for this one. But unfortunaltely it's still a bit too long for my group. I also think that the fighingmechanic is a bit complicated and long, and there are MANY bits to set-up and keep in order in Eclipse. Sold it.

Easy to learn, lifetime to master.....I know, it sounds like a cliche, but trust me, it isn't.

Easy, simple game by Knizia. I usually want to play a game of this quick Knizia filler. But I will always play with my own variant (which can be found on the variant forums).

Superb game. Best when all the players are at the same level. The roles and how they affects all the players are great, but can be ruined by players of unequel level.

Very tense game. Hard decisions to make. If you like auctions then Ra is the best game. One of my favorite games, and my best Knizia game. Still, I think the theme in Razzia works better and that's why it only gets 9 in my book(too bad Razzia doesn't have as nice components and that it doesn't include the catastrophe-tiles).

Played only once, but loved it. Suspect this one to be a 10 for me, but need to play it more. Pretty simple game, and one of the best hidden-roles-type of game.

Great game, dripping with theme. Seems like a lot of people are turned of by the drawing of the treasures, but to me it is just fun and exciting. Elegant game too.
