My top 10 recommended games for this Christmas are:
- Civilization Revolution – this can’t possibly be a surprise.
- Ticket to Ride – great game that everyone in the whole family will like.
- Puerto Rico – great game that people like me will like.
- Braid (Xbox Live Arcade) – it’s hard to describe this without giving part of it away.
- Rock Band – socializing with noise.
- Bohnanza – one of my analog favorites this year.
- Hare & Tortoise – a seriously good game for kids that’s actually enjoyable by adults, too.
- The Orange Box – three games for under $20 including Portal and Team Fortress 2.
- Incan Gold – easy to understand and wonderful game for lots of players.
- Carcassonne – a great analog starter game for anyone interested in trying games without electricity.
