A few games, winding down for the holidays

Now that Halloween has come and gone, the holiday season has officially started. My blogging will be slowing down drastically, so I'd like to recommend a few favorite games that are free online to entertain you.

1. Coloretto

A great family card game for 3-5 players, this is a family favorite both at home and online. Even the five year old is getting proficient at it. Great for teaching strategy, since everyone's cards are face up, and there is no reading involved.

2. Set

A game for any number of players, this is a card matching game where you find a 'set' of 3 cards among the 12 on the table that fit certain characteristics. Try the Set Daily Puzzle.

3. Sudoku

It's a fad that's likely come and gone, but it is still a wonderful logical deduction puzzle. My favorite online version is at websudoku.

For more information about board and card games in general, I highly recommend BoardGameGeek. Not only do they rank thousands of games by user votes, they also have descriptions, photos, and shopping links to help you fill out your shopping/wish list.

Happy Holidays, whatever you may celebrate. Enjoy the time off work if you can!
