My wife and I have been playing these quite a bit recently:
7 WONDERS - Great game. Each player has a hand of cards representing buildings, resources, military, science, etc. Everyone chooses one card to add to their display, then passes their cards to the next person who chooses one, then they get passed again and so on. Really tense because you only get to choose one card at a time and you can see all the good ones you are about to pass to your opponent.
LONDON - Takes place after the great fire of London. This is another card driven game with cards representing buildings, urban improvements (e.g., street lights, the underground), people, etc. Cards are color coded and if you want to add a card to your display you need to throw away a card of the same color. The catch is, that card now becomes availabe for your opponent to pick up and use. Always tough decisions about what to keep and what to throw away. You can also purchase boroughs (the game board is a map of the city). Each borough provides victory points and allows you to draw more cards from the deck. But the more cards you have, the more susceptible you are to poverty which counts against you in the final scoring.
