Tome is a trick-taking game with a twist. Every round will keep you on the edge of your seat.
I think it feels like a more complex Love Letter and offers players hours of play with two dynamic modes: teams or competitive (individual play). Watch it here: youtu.be/SAtz8W6tASw
In the Light Edition, you get the four suits (blue/water, purple/wind, orange/fire, and green/earth) as well as the special light spell cards (white edge border).

Kodama: The Tree Spirits and Kokoro: Avenue of the Kodama | Two Light Strategy Games Worth Your Time
Both Kodama and Kokoro hail from the same story world and contain the same inventive and playful artwork.
They also stand the test of time. Years later, I find myself enchanted by these light strategy games and want to play them again and again!
Kodama is a card collection and tableau building game that allows players to have different goals and strategies to earn the most points.
Kokoro is a flip and write with hidden information. Players draw on a dry-erase map attempting to connect Guardians and Sanctuaries to worms and flowers in the most efficient way they can.

When I Dream is a board game with diverse roles and semi-cooperative play.
Ultimately, players earn points individually, but they must work with others to get the dreamer to have either good or bad dreams.
Critical Thinking, Teamwork, Organization, Storytelling, Active Listening, and Communication are all skills your students will engage in when they play When I Dream.

Under Falling Skies is a solitaire game that asks players to protect their city against the invading spaceships. If the mothership or too many smaller ships cause you damage, you lose the game.

Under Falling Skies will keep you on the edge of your seat! And when you've mastered the base game, you'll have to attempt the campaign, which takes up over half the box! Watch here: youtu.be/59Lg6js1zZg

Canvas asks players to select art cards with varying elements in order to create masterpieces.
The art cards have color swatches and icons that will earn players victory points as you create and score your paintings. Luckily, players can use inspiration tokens to manage their art selection, as all players are vying for the same art cards to create their paintings.
After each player "paints" three masterpieces, the game is over and players will count up their earned ribbons against the scoring cards for that game.
This game is easily replayable as each game changes the scoring cards. Canvas is a fast, fun, and beautiful game. Creativity encouraged! Watch it here: youtu.be/TYrRPJUm-GQ
