A really good war game that makes players work hard for their victory and forces them to think ahead and plan well, while also being able to respond to unexpected turns of events.
If you have never played chess before and feel that it's too much to remember what all the different pieces do, but you do like the strategic element, then Earthenwar is perfect for you.
"Again, again, again!" was what I shouted after we had played the game for the first time - and the second time - and the third - and the 13th. Yes, we played it 13 times in one evening, that's how addictive it is.
15 Days and is a game that will stay around for a very long time.
If you like a bit of area control, player interaction and planet building, then Terraforming Mars is a must buy - at least in its digital form.
I think this is a lovely little card game that's good fun. There are many of the known alien tropes represented in the cards, which you will immediately recognize when you see them - but I don't want to spoil anything for you at this stage. I would say UFO Wave is worth taking a closer look.
Atikin Games has released a great series of games with Playful Pets and I love how you can combine two other games to make a third.
Feline Felonies will be perfect for you, if you are hankering after some dice rolling fun for all the family where cats do their best to steal each other's toys.
Canine Capers is a really quick and fun cooperative game for all the family.
Genotype plays relatively quickly, so if you're looking for a game that you can play as a family and that does a good job of teaching you about the beginnings of genetics, then I can highly recommend it to you.
