Probably the best version of Wits and Wagers, it simplifies the scoring system and cuts the US-centric questions by a mild amount (though there are still many questions using the archaic Imperial system and referring to US celebrities/sport stars).

Nonetheless - there isn't a better trivia game that I have played, very good.

Probably my favourite miniature game, I recently played a reasonably large engagement between the Covenant of Antarctica and the Chinese Federation... The Covenant (moi) lost horrendously, but it was a good fun game.

Zitternix is like Pick-Up Sticks, except it looks better and has a few more rules. A great game for kids, this one is easy to break out and play several games of. It's always a surprise how carelessly good kids can be at this sort of game!

A simple roll and move game, but the choice of which piece to move is interesting enough to keep kids involved. Not a game that would stand up to nightly play, but good enough to keep in the collection.

Not the most exciting game in the universe, but I actually rather enjoy playing a round or two. Played this with a group of 5 kids at the weekly school games club - and it went really well. A simple game engine, but with some interesting game pressures. Solid game.

Simple, but oh so good.

This really is a game that everybody should have on their shelf, easy to teach, simple enough to be taught in minutes, thought provoking and fun enough to replay again and again.

Very solid game.

Another game, like Qwirkle, that everybody who likes games should own. Rules so simple they could be on a business card, and yet rich and interesting game play. Of course, every version of Blokus is really only best with the maximum number of players, but this is a truly excellent game.

Few things define the gamut of human achievement more wholly than the act of construction, one of them however, is the act of destruction. This neat, approachable and absolutely enjoyable game for children and families neatly encapsulates both vigorously pursued endeavours of our species.

Well worth the price of admission. Worth it, that is, if you can bear to be confronted by the dichotomy, the tragic hubris, of the human psyche: the delight of construction, and the equally and darkly satisfying act of destruction...

A simple card game that mixes push your luck with some set collection aspects - good for kids and adults alike, and typical of Knizia, has some scoring twists that makes the game as a whole interesting and engaging to play.
