This list is for anyone to share their thoughts and feelings on the many fine games available to pecunious gamers at branches of The Works in towns and cities the length and breadth of the British Isles.

A continuation of discussion found at:
The Works, UK - games available in shops
The Works (UK) again
The Works, UK - games available online
(UK) The Works website, now showing cheap games

The list is set up to show the games in order of BGG ranking.

In making the polls I forgot that some of the games and expansions cost even less than £7.99 - so in the polls, for £7.99 read whatever price the game is. I'll try and update the entries with the correct price, but I'm afraid I can't change the polls. I'm just impressed that I managed to work out how to use polls at all.

May 2013 edit: More games are showing up at branches of the Works, and some of the older games can still be found here and there (and are likely to be showing up in charity shops now and then - they are certainly making their presence felt in Maths Trades and the like...). Which are the must-haves and which are the lemons? Let your opinion be known!
