I will be live on KOUW's The Beat tomorrow at 2:00 talking about my picks for the best gift games of the year.
Update: You can now listen to the show online at http://www.kuow.org/thebeat.asp?Archive=12-13. Here are the games I mention by name:
The full 2005 Good Gift Game Guide is available here and a bunch of additional information (runners-up, older games, etc.) can be found over yonder.
- For Sale: The game I likened to Monopoly.
- Poison: The game I likened to Hearts.
- China: The game I likened to Risk. I neglected to mention on the show that both For Sale and China are put out by the Seattle game company Uberplay. Buy good games, support local business -- it's a two-fer.
- Diamant: The game I likened to poker.
- Shadows Over Camelot: The "unlike anything you've ever played" game. You can find my review of SoC here
If you live in Seattle, you can find local game stores and places to order these game online here. And if you have any question, feel free to send 'em my way.
