Fuchs & Fertig
Fox's Party is a fast playing push your luck and memory game in one. Each player starts with a deck of twelve face-down cards, each card shows one of seven animals on it, but since those cards are face-down you don't know which animals you have, at least not at first. The remaining cards are placed face up in the center of the table so that everyone can see the critter on the top card; the face of each card also shows a "size chart" of how the animals relate to one another in size: the ant is the smallest, followed by the snail, the frog, the hedgehog, the fox, the deer and the bear. On a turn, you state whether you think the card on top your deck features an animal that's larger, smaller, or the same size as the animal on top of the deck, then you reveal that card. If you're wrong, you place the card face down on the bottom of your deck and end your turn. If you're correct, you can stop or decide to take another guess, but this time you'll compare the hidden animal on top of your deck with the animal that you just revealed. Anytime you're wrong, you bury all revealed cards in the same order face down under your deck. But if you stop after one or more correct answers, you then place all of those cards (in the order guessed) on top of the central deck. The first player to play all the cards in his deck wins.

Incan Gold is an award-winning game in which players push their luck as they head into a ruined temple, attempting to find the most jewels. Each turn, a card is turned over that increases the gold found in a temple or shows a hazard. Players can attempt to escape, keeping the loot that they've acquired, or stay in the temple, hoping for increased profits. As players escape, those in the temple will acquire bigger shares of each pile of gold found, but also run the risk of dying if the same hazard card is drawn twice. Up to eight people can play this game, so it works very well at parties and other gatherings, as players decide whether or not to stay or leave the temples. With quality components and a compelling theme, Incan Gold will be the first choice of large groups looking for a fun filled game.
