I received Dominion's Cornucopia expansion as a gift, and over the last couple of weeks we have been playing through the recommended card sets found in it's rules. These are sets that pair with the original Dominion and the Intrigue set. I recall seeing recommended sets in the rulebooks for some of the later expansions for pairing with Cornucopia, but I am not sure if we will play them. With only 13 new kingdom cards, and each recommended set having 5 of them, I feel that we have had ample opportunity to see how they work. Next is probably back to random sets, with the new cards included.

Suburbia has cemented itself as a favourite for me; it's just so much fun playing a board game version of SimCity! This time my wife buried the Casino on me and managed to get the PR firm later on. Luckily I was far enough ahead at this point that combined with getting both public goals (which lost me my goal) it was enough to squeak out the win. Maybe I jumped the gun a bit with the idea of removing the PR firm and Casino from our games.

We then played two rounds of 7 Wonders, which has become our "regular" game. I am definitely not complaining, it is always a lot of fun, and actually goes pretty fast when you have a group who are all familiar with the game. Our first game resulted in some of the highest scores I have ever seen! The table (at the end of the game) and the scorecard are shown below. I am always on the lookout for good games for 6 players, please feel free to suggest some! I tend to find that a lot of games are good for up to 5 players.
