House of Melissa & Fraser - Games waiting to get off our shelves and onto the table
OK I bit the bullet and renamed and updated this list. It is now a list of games that are waiting to be played at our house (well excluding many old wargames that aren't likely to be played soon). For a game to be considered to be played it must be played face to face and the logging of the play must have occurred since late 2003, which was when I started logging plays on BGG. Some of these games were played prior to that cutoff date, some of them a lot of times, but they don't count for this list.Recommend
With two small children (
six eightnine and one threefour), we generally can only find time for the two player games, for those requiring more players finding time is a little bit harder - however we do manage it occasionally, we probably manage to get game playing adults over on average once a fortnight.
My adjusted yardstick is at least two plays before it gets marked as Played, because for non-trivial games the first play is usually just a learning game.
Now using Played, F Played and M Played depending on both played, Fraser has played or Melissa has played.
The list is in no particular order and could be considered by some to be a little esoteric.
We're interested in suggestions of which we should try next and also how many times any particular game should be played to get a decent feel for how good or bad the game is and to have a decent idea of how to play it.
14-Feb-2004 - Renamed list and made significant modifications to the items it may be a bit "under construction" for a while. This has probably sent a few comments that other kind people had added to the original version of the list down to Davy Jones' locker - sorry.
Added details of companion list.now removed as it was not being updated.
