With everyone home for the holidays, Christmas time is a great time to break out games to play with the whole family around.

I used to be really into collectable card games like Pokemon, or Magic: The Gathering, but there came a point where I felt like they became too complicated and the cards became too expensive.

Lately, I've been playing a new collectable dice game. It’s called Dice Masters, and, to me, it is just as much fun, but doesn’t cost nearly as much.

Many people are at least sort of familiar with what Dungeons & Dragons is - a role playing game that a group of friends play together using dice and books, rather than a TV and a controller. I love playing D&D, but the games are long, and finding people that aren’t so busy that they can’t play these long campaigns for hours at a time, weeks in a row... well, that’s difficult.

Last week, I asked a friend to introduce me to some lesser-known games that don’t take very long to play. He immediately pulled out a game called Dixit. When he told me that it’s a game about telling short stories, I didn’t really understand how short he meant.

Normally, furniture isn’t something I’d be talking much about on a segment dedicated to gaming. But where you play can be just as important as what you play.

Some card games have entire books and online forums devoted to debating their rules. The game Fluxx, on the other hand, has exactly two rules: draw one card, and play one card. That is, until you actually start playing cards.

Way back in March when I was at the PAX Gaming Festival in Boston, I got a chance to play several amazing games before they were ready for store shelves. One of those games, Story War, is finally available.

The Resistance is a card game for up to 10 people. You can play this with your friends, but I should caution that they probably won’t be your friends during the game.
