page contains lists of games that I both own and personally recommend.
If you're here, it's probably because you've played a game with me and
want to know a little more about it or where you can buy it. The games
you see here all link to Funagain games. Funagain offers a large variety
of new and used domestic and imported games as well as good customer service.
If you buy a game off of this page, they give me a small cut.

Where to Start
I've divided up my top picks into four categories, each containing four
Lighter Fare -- If you like party games
but don't play (or think you'll play) anything more involved yet, give
these a try. Most of these games can be played in less than 30 minutes
and can be played by more people.
German Games Starter Kit -- If you
aren't afraid to try a game that'll last 30 to 75 minutes, check out these
games. The games in this category form the heart of my collection.
Games for Gamers -- If you're a
would-be gaming enthusiast, don't miss the games in this category. They're
a little more complex but worth it. These games usually play in about
60 to 90 minutes.
Two-player Games -- Like the title says.
Perfect for the honeymoon. :-)
Games for Kids -- For children 3
and up; tested by my daughter Colleen and me.
There's a wealth of additional information on these games on the Internet.
