One of the first games we played was Dead Panic, the alternate zombie edition to Castle Panic. The object of the game is to play cooperatively together to fend off zombies while inside of a cabin. If you can locate and assemble the required radio pieces, call for help, and be rescued, you win the game. The unique twist to this game is it can change if any of the players gets bitten too many times from zombies. If any of the players turns, you're then against each other for survival.
We also played Agricola, the worker placement, and resource management farming game. To win this game, each player must build and cover the largest, most efficient farm gaining the most victory points. Agricola is a pretty expensive game. Personally, a little more than I would want to spend. I like it, but for the components you get, it's too overpriced. I would save your money and get Caverna instead. We played an array of strategy and party games this weekend and look forward to returning again next year.
