  • XBOX Kinect w/ Kinectimals – This is the first ‘gamer’ thing my nearly 5 year old daughter has openly asked for without me mentioning it beforehand. She excitedly told me about it one night when I got home as “the game where you can make your pet tiger pretend it’s dead by playing dead on the floor”.

  • Fallout: New Vegas

Ben Evans (Webmaster)

  • Catan Histories: Settlers of America – This is a great new game by Klaus Teuber and Mayfair Games. Enjoyable for veterans of Settlers of Catan and new players alike, explore and and move westward as you settle America.
  • Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series – I have always found the Discworld series to be enjoyable and immersive, yet light enough to be able to put down and come back to at any time. The books in the series are not always connected and you can read them in (almost) any order. As a starting point, I suggest either The Color of Magic or The Thief of Time.
  • The 2011 Time Travelers Calendar – This calendar takes a listing of time travel occurrences throughout movies, video games and books and lays them out on a convenient time line for your datekeeping pleasure.
  • Dungeons and Dragons Red Box – If you have never played Dungeons and Dragons, this is a great way to get introduced to the world. The Red Box contains everything necessary to get started and play.
