Gamewright Tiki Topple
One of the best games of the year! Got high marks for being different from other games out there. Each player draws a secret card that tells them which three totem pieces need to be in one of the top three positions. Then the fun begins. Each player then plays one of her action cards that will either move a piece up or down on the totem pole - or worse - remove a piece all together. There's some strategy here as well as good fortune. You play four rounds to determine the winner.
