The same torture as every year: which game should I buy at the fair?
(and which later.. )

The games are not sorted, I have not added any ranking.


I'm allways locking for silly / funny / chaotic card games. So, if there is one missing, please make a comment.

Of course, main source for this list is

great graphics and theme, have to try:

" After the nuclear strike, thousands of survivors have found refuge in the Moscow underground (a.k.a., the Metro) — the biggest shelter in the world. In the stations and tunnels deep below the surface a new civilization emerges. Each player is a leader of one of the many factions of post-nuclear underground. In order to win, a faction has to achieve ten victory points (VPs). Each station under the faction's control gives it 1 VP; different quests also bring VPs when completed. The other way to win is to capture all four stations of Polis — the cultural and political heart of Metro."

Sounds like a nice card game, but have to try.

"In Air King you are an air traffic controller. Your task is to be the first one to guide and land certain aircraft. To make things tricky, however, each player has his own task that's hidden from others, so sometimes it's useful to bluff in order to give false information to other players as to which aircraft are yours."
