Roll for it!

Made by the same company that created Tsuro, this game is like a more forgiving and interesting version of Yahtzee and is our go-to game for relatives who are not interested in learning a new game with a lot of rules. It's easy to play but still a lot of fun.

Follow the path! A simple and beautiful game that requires very little instruction to begin game play. It can be played successfully with 2-8 players which is a great range to have when you have people over. Be the last one to have your piece run into another player or go off the board and you'll be the winner!
