Board Games For Newbies

What are your thoughts on Felica Day's selection of games for newbies?  I have only heard of and played Ticket to Ride and Splendor.  Those are both good for beginners.  What would you add to the list?

Fun Fact Friday

SiouxLand Renaissance Festival Game Day

Saturday the SiouxLand Renaissance Festival hosted a game day at Active Generations.  20 to 30 people played games during the event.  They used this as an opportunity to raise funds for their festival.  Matt Millar presented a check to Josh Paulson from IONS.  On a personal note, I was there long enough to get beat at two games of Splendor.  Should have stayed longer, maybe I would have won at something else cheeky.  Games that I noticed:  Ticke

Fun Fact Friday

Did you know that in February of 2015 (according to wikipedia)  Variety announced that Gail Katz purchased the film and television rights to Settlers of Catan?  Katz said, "The island of Catan is a vivid, visual, exciting and timeless world with classic themes and moral challenges that resonate today.  There is a tremendous opportunity to take what people love about the game and its mythology as a starting point for the narrative."  It is unknown if the novel that was written by Rebecca Gable will be used as a source material for any television show or movie that may be made in the future.
