My nephew is about to turn three, and I was thinking about sending him a nice present (my brother is living abroad). Would this make a good first game for a child? I see the mechanics are simple enough, the components are colorful, and with the name "Knizia" on the cover I thought it can't go wrong... any suggestions?

Am I a man or am I a muppet? If I'm a muppet then I'm a very manly muppet!

I will suggest that "Knizia = can't go wrong" is not necessarily true... my evidence? Nimbali. (Beautiful bits, barely a game.)

Didn't know of Reiner's dark past.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll look into them!

Monkey Madness is, I think, a great first game...my daughters loved it and we played it over and over and over. But they were younger, I think it is really about right for a two year old or even younger. At 3, he may outgrow it soon. For a 3 year old I would recommend Gulo Gulo if you can get it. It's a great game and a 3 year old will enjoy it for a good long time.

Gulo Gulo is sadly sadly OOP and is very very difficult to find here in the U.S.
