comment Games that are quick to teach to new people, yet still fun and strategical
it also helps if you play a little nicely the first time. The absolute most annoying thing about dominion is when you see other experienced players working through 8+ card combos where all you get to do is play one smithy. Its really easy to get over when you show people some strategies, so just get them drawn in enough so you don't scare them away early.

comment Quick engaging card games that can be learned quickly by a new group
to the subjective and argumentative close voter: This question is no more subjective than many on the front page. If we purge all subjective questions in favor of objective ones only, this site will become dull and boring, and miss the whole point of having fun while talking about board games. boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/4/…

comment Quick engaging card games that can be learned quickly by a new group
I have fluxx, but I've never played lunch money. How complicated is it and how much strategy and interaction is there?

comment What are some alternatives to using dice in Settlers of Catan?
I don't care about the luck, dice just make the game a lot slower too. You can save 5 minutes spent doing nothing by shaking dice fairly easily if you just use cards.

comment Interesting boardgames to play with children.
@Pawka Some players win more often than others due to randomness. There is definitely some strategy in uno, but not enough to have a gigantic impact.
