Now that my son is 4 years old, I like to spend my BGG time researching children and family games. My husband and I are plotting future family game nights!

I'm also in the state of reducing our board game collection as we have too many games that we haven't played much and don't foresee playing anytime in the future. The goal is to not take up more than two IKEA bookcases (with room to spare for future additions). And those bookcases better be nice and neat with no cramming in games! Let the culling begin!

Our house rule is still no more expansions! I look back at the expansions that we do have, and they really aren't "must haves" and they don't add that much value to the game play.

Kid Games
My son is now 4 years old and his favorite games are:

- Monza
- My First Carcassonne

My son's favorite games at 3 years old:

- Orchard Memory Game
- The Orchard: Card Game

Light to Medium Games
My taste in games that I wish to own has now changed from heavy-weight, complex games to more streamlined games that play up to two hours long. I will still keep the heavier games, but only the really great ones!

Favourite Games to Play with New or Non-Gamers

Games for new gamers:
Lost Cities: The Board Game
Downfall of Pompeii
Ticket to Ride (proven good)
Guillotine (proven decent)
Kill Doctor Lucky
Forbidden Island
Formula D

Games that are suitable for my parents:
Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers
For Sale (proven to be a favorite!)
Formula D (basic)
Lost Cities: The Board Game

Shadow Hunters (minimum 5 players)(too complicated for some...)
