Comments: 2009 Spiel des Jahres Nominees

Our family loves Dominion! It has had more plays in the past month or two than any other game in our collection. I don't believe that will change in the near future. There are many decks that we haven't even touched, so the variety should keep us engaged for quite some time.

Fits sounds good, as we have enjoyed Take It Easy in the past. Unfortunately, it only accommodates four players, and we always play with 5, 6, or 7 in the same game simultaneously. So, we won't be purchasing Fits (unless they come out with an expansion for at least 6 players). I suppose we could buy two sets, but I don't think the long-term enjoyment would warrant the expense.

We aren't into cooperative games, so Pandemonium isn't in our future, in spite of the fact that it seems to be a great game to play.

Looking forward to more comments from you on these and other games.

Fauna is not bad at all - there are LOTS of obscure animals, and you get to bet on their different attributes. For example, if the animal is a tapir, it might be found in 2 locations. OK, Brazil is probably one, but is the other Peru or Colombia? And does it weight 10-20kg or 20-40kg or 40-60kg? Close guesses get some points. I liked it.
