I first discovered Pick-Omino via the iPad app. It is a Reiner Knizia game, and I often enjoy his games. Pick-Omino is definitely on the lighter side of Knizia's games, and has an equally light theme. The theme is...

Fluxx is a game where as you play the rules and goals shift. For some this moving target is a delight, while others it is extreme frustration. While the basic structure of Fluxx is the same, there are now...
