- Witchs' Dance (actual title was German, unpronounceable and impossible to remember) a kids game that was a really difficult memory game. Each player had 4 witches to move around a track and off the board. First kicker -the tokens were identical except for a coloured sticker on the bottom which could only be viewed if you rolled a 6 and forwent movement. Second kicker - if you landed on another witch, you bumped her back 7 spaces with resulting chain reactions. After a few moves no one knew which witch was which. I won literally because other players moved all 4 of my witches by accident (thinking they were their own tokens).
- Infinite City (plus an expansion, although how one expands and infinite city is beyond me!) - tile placement game that I really enjoyed - especially since I won it!
- Midnight Party - another kids Halloween themed game that was the most fun of the evening. Your party going guests race around trying to avoid Hugo the ghost. The trouble is that the 2 of the die's faces moved the ghost instead of the players tokens. I started well but finished back in the pack.
- Puerto Rico - loved the game, but I was playing 3 players with a lot more experience at it than I, so I was thoroughly thrashed.
