When I was on vacation last month, I had a day where my wife was working and I had nothing going on. The kids didn't want to do anything, so I called Mike and asked him to come over and play games. The first game out of the gate was Cowboys: The Way of the Gun. Cowboys is a pretty straightforward western shootout. You can play cards to help you, or hinder you opponent (such as making their gun misfire, or making them slip and fall over), or you can shoot people. ...Or, you can run away, ya yellowbelly!

Flapjacks and Sasquatches is an easy, "take that" style card game in which you want to chop down the tree card in front of you. The card has both a "chop" value and a point value; using Axe cards, you roll dice to try to meet or exceed the "chop" value. When you do, you collect the tree (and the points). Flapjack cards can add to your roll, while blister cards can take away.
