2011 Holiday Gift Guide
The organizing principle for this year's Game Buyer's Gift Guide is a simple one: quality and availability. All the games on the list have been published within the last 12 months or so and should be available from multiple brick and mortar and online retailers. In some cases, the games are only available in Europe, but not to worry, these games can be ordered from the German version of Amazon and can easily arrive in time for the holidays.
We have broken the list into 10 different categories: Party, Card, Dexterity, Kids & Family, Genre, Oddball, Dice, Co-Op, Euro, Small Press
While the list is certainly not comprehensive, we're betting a lot of people on your list might enjoy games from one of these categories. If you decide to order a game from our list, feel free to let the shop or retailer know you heard about it on The Spiel.
We hope everyone has a great holiday season filled with fun and games!

I'm sure there are some goofs in there somewhere. Let us know if (when?) you find one!
In the Small Press Category one of my honorable mention games is 1955: The War of Espionage NOT 1950 as stated on the show.
