Give Sequence a try. It's half card game, half board game. Pretty simple to learn, but lots of strategy.

I like Pin the tail on the mother in law. It is not her personal favorite though.

You seriously must have met my mother in law to come up with this one.

mine is fairly close to Ice Queen status on a good day. I think if I left her outside in the cold, the small attempt at a smile might actually crack her up...literally.

Sequence is a great game. It's easy to learn and you can play with quite a few people. It is sometimes a little hard to find around Christmas, but the last time I was at Toys R us they did have a few.

I've heard a lot of good reports about Cranium - never heard of Sequence and I'm always on the lookout for a new game - Pictionary is big in our house along with Slangteasers.

Hey thanks to all of you for your suggestions....I'll try and track down Sequence and yes, Pictionary is a great game as long as my mother in law is not my partner.

Now Ferri, your suggestion of a Treasure Hunt is an awesome idea. According to the rules, is Moosejaw considered too far so send them looking for clues?
