I just picked up a copy of DropMix on a deal recently. I won't describe the experience as very much of a board game per se however it is still fun will get people's attention.

I keep seeing that at Best Buy. Is it fun?

The game is OK but the experience is pretty fun. I have been able to pick up some cards at deep sales so it has been fun to mix in new cards & get new mixes.

I would recommend Monopoly Deal. It is not like a traditional monopoly game – it is better! The game is a card version of the classic monopoly. So, the goal of the game is basically the same – to collect all sets of property as quickly as you can, however to gain property means to gain the necessary cards.

There are 3 sets of cards of different colors. Upon the whole, there are 110 cards. You can collect them, earn them, swap them, and even steal them! Be the smartest ass in your company.

The game can be played by up to 5 people. If you are driven by nostalgia, this is an excellent choice! It will surely invoke your memories.

Have you played Monopoly Millionaire Deal Card Game? I actually like that better than the original Monopoly Deal Card Game.

I'm always on the lookout for games I could introduce to my wife, who gets easily overwhelmed by rules after rules. I recently got Santorini and will be getting Love Letter Adventure Time Boxed Card Game. What are other good gateway games that are also quick to setup?

Santorini is a fun one.

I like Azul and Sagrada as my favorite gateway games right now. Both are beautiful, low on rules and still strategically engaging. Century: Golem Edition is another that I would suggest.

I've been wondering if getting Sagrada would be worth it when I already have Azul. What do you think?

1nf1n1ty Supporter14 months ago | 2 points[-]

I think so. They fill different spots in my collection. I prefer Sagrada though.

Both Sagrada and Century: Golem Edition are on my wishlist now haha

I don't think you'll regret either of them.
