Some Games to play...

There was also an article about board games for the family. Their correspondent was planning to go on holiday in the Lake District, where you can still expect some rain over the summer. The article is here.... Among the games/sites they mention are Cirondo, a sci-fi, galactic domination game, which started as an online game, but not one I'd heard of. I may check it out. Also mentioned was the Board Game Company. This sells a lot of games, but the Guardian found Carcassone (wikipedia & boardgamegeek) worthy of mention and together with Ticket to Ride (wikipedia & boardgamegeek).

Dave,

Carcasonne really is one of my favourite board games. It even did win the germany price "game of the year" some years back. Highly appreciated!

Dave,

Ooops, I forgot:

http://www.spiel-des-jahres.de/ is the URL of the Game of the Year selecters. Check it out! You will find many good advices for games! Sadly, it's in german... ;-)
