Who's up for the next weekly challenge? Did anyone complete last week's?

Week 25 - Play a game that you think you will win.

Personally, I have a lot of games in my collection that I could play to complete that challenge, but I'll list a few that wouldn't work for me - meaning, I think there is a better chance of me losing than winning. A few that come to mind are Acquire, which we played just last night and I had the worst score, Agricola, which we played for a few weekends in a row and I only won once, and Boggle, which I probably spend as much time looking up words during scoring to verify whether they are actually words as I do writing them down.
