Ok so you are wondering what games to get for your gamer friends or better still, non-gaming friends who you want to get into the hobby.

Well, here are a few recommendations which should be broadly available from your friendly neighborhood or online retailer.

Party Game


Dixit by Asmodee Games

Winner of the Spiel des Jahres 2010 and deservedly so, Dixit is an excellent game which is simple to play and loads of fun as you try and outwit the other players in interpreting and describing colorful artwork.

Adventure Game

The Adventurers by AEG

Enjoy a fun adventure in this Indiana Jones-esque game. Great fun is to be had as you race through the Temple, collecting treasures and trying to outrun the giant boulder!

Historical Game

The Great Fire of London by Medusa Games and Prime Games
