This looks interesting. Maybe light enough to get played and it has a stock element. Once the reprint hits retail I will see what price I can get it for. If it crashes like Parfum (saw for $15 recently) then I will definitely own this.

Paris Connection is one of my personal favorite games and sits just outside the Top 1000 (as of today). Relatively short. Easy to teach. Plays well with up to 6 players. I find that in virtually every game, my heart is pounding near the end as I wonder whether I have maneuvered correctly or whether a couple of my opponents will collaborate to undermine me.

I played the Winsome version SNCF FOUR times during the con. Played the HeavyCon map twice - in neither case did we get close to the transcontinental link forming but perhaps that occurs less in five player games. Also got in a play of the Germany map which is an odd map that I would play much differently if played again. Didn't really care for the constant checking to see if the purple cities could no longer be reached by the RRs which was an end game condition.

Thanks to the HC crew for the Heavy Cardboard map for SNCF!

A shorter playtime favorite of mine, PC / SNCF has very simple rules but depth that belies the apparent simplicity. I was able to get in at least a couple games of this (I forget if I got two or three) on the basic map and a new map made by Tony, one of the former hosts of Heavy Cardboard. I was fortunate in both games to have players set me up to be in a good position timing-wise and I got a couple of victories in.

I think the game works best with 4 (as a nice balance between chaos and control), but we played with 5 and 6 each time (it was a con, after all). It didn't drag since we had experienced players each time and enjoyment was had by all.

April was an amazing month for family-friendly discoveries. All of the top-3 will likely have long-term staying power on the family table. Exciting times.



Marrakesh

I found Marrakesh in a thrift store over a year ago, but never managed to play the game itself. Instead, I adapted the rules for use with Looney Pyramids and Martian Coasters and while that was fun, it was just a passing fancy. However, I recently managed to find the Das Spiel wooden case version on Ebay.de and snatched it up. It took a couple games to remember the scoring oddities, but I think I finally have them down. The game is a blast and plays just as well as I thought that it would. The matches start quite random with some wild swings, but as the match progresses you start to gain more information about the cards left in play. I really like that about the game. Marrakesh is truly an oddball game, but I find it quite endearing. It should see many plays with the family.

Toğızqumalaq

Toğızqumalaq is yet another game that I've wanted to try for quite a while. While I occasionally enjoy a game of Americanized Mancala and Oware, neither has me clambering to play. However, even after my first play, I knew that Toğızqumalaq was the mancala for me. The larger board coupled with the presence of a bevy of seeds adds nice depth over the others, but it's the addition of the tuzdik rule (effectively a safe-zone on your opponent's side created during play) really takes Mancala to the next level. I've only played five games so far with my kids, but I definitely find myself clambering for more.

SNCF

When it came time to write up this post, I struggled with the game that would take this final favorite slot. The game that eventually (I'll talk about the other later) took the cake is SNCF (aka Paris Connection). In my opinion, SNCF is the train gamers' Cribbage. SNCF is a near-perfect filler game, but don't let that fool you -- there's some depth to be found and I really look forward to exploring it, especially other maps. Let me clarify that the depth is nowhere near that of your typical meaty train game, but that's fine. Just as a Bridge player might use Cribbage to fill some time, an 18xx player might use SNCF to do the same. In either case, there's enough depth to keep the interest players between sessions of the more weighty games. As a nice bonus, the game has stimulated the creative juices and I've been thinking about it as a game system.

18. The idea of having a secret pool of stocks in the different train companies creates an awesome bluffing game. You can either place trains on the board to extend the lines and make them more profitable or you can trade stock 1 for two and put the new stocks behind your screen. Short playing time and a good dose of strategy here.



My BGG rating 9/10: Excellent game. Always want to play it.

Added to this list in 2016. I Kickstarted this, taking something of a flier. Tony, late of Heavy Cardboard, seems to like the game upon which this one is based. Let's see.

Desire to play: 3
Likelihood to play: 3 (depending on KS delivery)

Update: 13 July
Played with the whole family - in three teams. Set up took a bit, but it played quickly. I was thrilled with it.
