Matthew Baldwin's yearly Good Gift Games Guide
I am definitely the person among my family and (board game playing) friends who finds and introduces the new games. Ticket to Ride has run its course somewhat, and some of the other recent finds haven't clicked just right, so I'm searching for a couple new ones for 2007. Yeti always points me in the right direction.
The ridiculously named Hey That's My Fish looks like an early favorite. Thurn & Taxis has promise for its similarity to Ticket to Ride and Wits and Wagers has the “anybody can win this trivia game” appeal that families always seem to go for. We'll see what Santa delivers in the UPS truck to my gaming shelf this year.
