The Great Dalmuti. This is a great game to play at a party. It is a traditional card game of following suit but it encourages lots of variations. The flexibility of this game makes it really fun. I like the line in the rules that says, “Life isn’t fair and neither is the Great Dalmuti.” For 4-8 players (best with 7 or 8) ages 8+
Dixit. Dixit is a card game with the most unusual cards you have ever seen. Each card is different and you are trying to match a card with the captions that one person makes up. The cards are bizarre but the images are so open-ended that they could fit in all kinds of captions. This game really encourages creative thinking and might be a jumping-off place for artists or writers. For 3-6 (or more) players ages 6+
Pathfinder Role Play Game. I love role play games both as a player and a moderator. The best role play games encourage critical thinking and problem solving in a collaborative manner. They use good verbal communication skills as well. Pathfinder is a beautifully created fantasy world that is continually improved by its players. Although it is based on the old Dungeons and Dragons role play system it far exceeds anything that has gone before. For 3-8 players ages 12+
