Sleeping Queens

12 out of 13 gamers thought this was helpful

Our daughters, ages 7 & 9 LOVE this game. Honestly, my husband and I thought it’d be just another card game for the family, but since we’ve opened it we’ve played for up to two hours, 3-4x’s a week!

It’s a creative card game, using different character cards to wake the sleeping queens. Not a ton of strategy is involved, so it’s a quick game for younger children to learn, while being complex in utilizing math skills to get rid of number cards and replace them with face cards.

My husband and the girls were playing with the straight rules, 50 points or 5 queens wins the game with 2-3 player. They recommend 40 points or 4 queens with 4 player. I suggested we play to 5 queens or 50 points to make it a little more challenging. We’ve all enjoyed the challenge more.

Watch out, Uno! I think Sleeping Queens stole your thunder.

Agricola

54 out of 66 gamers thought this was helpful

Probably one of the most complex strategy games I’ve ever played, and I’ve definitely played some psychologically complex strategy games with a serious group of avid gamers; ie. Illuminati, Dominion, Citadels, etc.

Agricola takes some time to learn the rules, but it’s definitely one you can play over and over again. But as some have come to realize, it is a game that can generate stress between players, which can result in bickering clashes. Hot headed gamers should avoid this game, because though much of it depends on strategy, much of it also depends on luck of the draw. Some people just don’t play well when things aren’t going their way.

Still, it sits at the top of my gaming list.
