Santa -

Thanks for the box! I opened it up thinking it was something I ordered and was VERY happy to see my gifts. I'll post on the list shortly.



Dear Santa,

Thanks for taking a look at my profile. While you're free to take a dive into my wishlist and find something to buy, I figured that since you're here I would give you a guide to buying for my wife and I.

First off, we are parents of a 2 year old, with another on the way. I guess that's the short way to say that we don’t have a ton of time to play anymore, so the sweet spot is 30-60 minutes, with minimal set up. Some games we're playing a lot right now are Pandemic Legacy, Tiny Epic Galaxies, Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, and San Juan.

We enjoy deep games that force us to think, but we tend to avoid games that are too quick to eschew randomness. As an example, while Power Grid is a fun game, we're rarely in the mood for it. On the other hand, Race for the Galaxy is a perennial favorite.

Theme is important to us (no abstracts please). While we do play in groups, if a game can be played with 2 people it’s much more likely to stick than if we can only play it with 3+. Finally, we love social games like Coup, Resistance, etc., but we ALREADY HAVE ENOUGH so please avoid those this year.

Some games we'd love to see:

Roll for the Galaxy + Ambition
Pandmic: The Cure
Roll Through the Ages: The Iron Age
Lord of the Rings: the Card Game (the 'Against the Shadow Cycle' starting with Heirs of Numenor)

But be creative and make it your own - whatever you send will be loved!

By the way - used games are fine, especially if it means you're sending more value.

Thanks, and Happy Holidays!

Since the arrival of our son, we're playing a lot more 2 player games and are always looking for short and light games to fit into our new schedule.
