Hey everybody. I film a series of boardgame runthrough videos called Rahdo Runs Through and I run a yearly fundraising drive on Kickstarter to fund said series.

One of the main rewards I give to people who back me in these funderaisers is the ability to vote for (and at some backer levels directly choose) a portion of the games I would runthrough every month. So far the results have been very cool - the voters have been putting me through my paces with some really heavy games, and also some great obscure ones. Here's a thread devoted to the results so far: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/966204/directors-chair

The games that the voters choose from is found here in this geeklist. If you've got a game you'd really like to see the voters choose, add it here, and explain why you think it would be a good choice.

If you see something you like, be sure to thumbsup it!!! Every month, when the voters cast their ballots, the list they'll be voting from will come from this geeklist, composed of the games that have gotten the most thumbs from all of you!

Bear in mind, I'll exercise some editorial control over this geeklist. If you request something insanely expensive/impossibly rare, I probably will remove it. Also, if it doesn't support 2 players, I'll definitely delete it, because I simply cannot play the game to do a runthrough, as I *only* play 2p games.

Note, I also remove items from the list if I'm confident my wife Jen or I will NOT enjoy playing them. Here's a list games that have been removed (and the reasons why):

Too long, heavy, and/or fiddley:
1830, Android, Arkham Horror, De Vulgari Eloquentia, Firefly: The Game, Fury of Dracula, Here I Stand, High Frontier 3rd Edition, Incredible Expeditions, Indonesia, Leaving Earth, Marvel Heroes, Neuland, Poseidon, Roads & Boats, Shadows of Brimstone, Space Alert, Ticket to Ride: Rails & Sails, through the ages 4th edition, Warhammer quest: Silver Tower

Too conflict-ey/cutthroat-ish:
1775, Abyss, Advanced Squad Leader, An Infamous Traffic, Arcadia Quest, Ares Project, argent the consortium, Argo, artificium, Asante, Ashes, Barony, Battlecon Devastation of Endines, Battlelore 2nd edition, The Battle of Five Armies, belle of the ball, Bluemoon Legends, Boss Monster, Broom Service, Byzantium, Candamir: The First Settlers, Cardgame of Oz, Cavern Tavern, Clash of Cultures, Clockwork Wars, Colonial: Europe's Empires Overseas, Colt Express, Cry Havoc, The Convoy, Deadman's Doubloons, Dead of Winter, Dicemasters: Avengers vs Xmen, Dos Rios, Draco Magi, Dragon Caster, Dragon's Horde, Duel of Ages II, Dwar7s Fall, El Gaucho, Emergence Event, Epic Card Game, Equinox, Feudum, Fog of War, Gaia, Game of Thrones the card game, Gosu 2, Greedy Greedy Goblins, Han, Haze Islands, Heartland, Hegemonic, Heldentaufe, Hoplomachus, Hyperborea, Imhotep, Impulse, Inis, Jambo, Kahuna, Krosmaster: Arena, Liberte, Mage Wars, March of ants, Massillia, Masters of Orion, Merchants & Marauders, Memoir '44, Metallum, Mexica, Mission Red Planet, Mythotopia, Navajo Wars, New Dawn, Nexus Ops, Norsaga, Omen: A Reign of War, Onward to Venus, Pax Porfiriana, Polis: Fight for the Hegemony, Portal, Princess Bride: I Hate to Kill You, Raptor, Reef Encounter, Rise to Power, Romolo o Remo, Royals, Saboteur: Duel, santiago de cuba, Sator Arepo Tenet Opera Rotas, Seafall, Sentinel Tactics, Serenissima, sheep & thief, Shipwrights of the North Sea, Sid Meier's Civilization, Small World, Space Empires 4x, Star Trek Fleet Captains, Star Wars the Card Game, Star Wars Queens Gambit, Star Wars Imperial Assault, Star Wars Rebellion, Star Wars Xwing, Strife: Shadows and Steam, Survive: Escape from Atlantis!, Terraforming Mars, thunder & lightning, tigris & euphrates, Tiny Epic Kingdoms, Twilight Squabble, Vanuatu, Vivarium, War of the Ring, Whelps to Wyrms, Witchcraft, World of Yoho

Jen's not crazy about theme:
13 Days, 51st State, Baseball Highlights 2045, Blood Bowl, Camp Grizzly, Clockwork Kingdom, Colonialism, Command & Colors Ancients, Darkness Sabotage, Dawn of the Zeds, Deep Madness, dojo kun, Doomtown, Eschaton,

Too abstract:
Arboretum, Fits, Hanamikoji, Haru Ichiban, Pastiche

Not a gameplay genre or style we enjoy:
circus train, Darklight: Memento Mori, defenders of the realm, Empires of the Void II, Exodus: Proxima Centauri, haggis, Dungeons of Infinity, lords of xidit, jupiter rescue, merchants of venus, rhein river trade, Skull Tales, Super Dungeon Explore: Forgotten King, Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles: Shadows of the Past


Too light:
African Park, Archaeology the card game, Bakerspeed, Burger Joint, Castle Panic, Clown Standoff, Chrononauts, Dudab, DungeonQuest Revised Edition, Expedition: Famous Explorers, Fabulous Beasts, flick em up, Hengist, Jamaica, Machi Koro, North Winds, Perry Rhodan, Pina Pirata, Potion Explosion, Rattlebones, Stinky Business, Takenoko, Ticket to Ride, Tokaido, Tsuro of the Seas

Simply Not interested in playing:
Agora, Castelli, Castle Panic, Dragonscroll, Fairy Land, Hanabi, Kairo, Linwood, Myth 2.0, Poseidon's Kingdom, O Zoo le Mio, Star Trek panic, Star Wars Angriff der Klonkreiger, Tavarua


So how do these requests get used?
Here's how it works: there's 2 types of titles on this list: games I own, and games I don't own. Every month, I pick the top thumbed games from the "games I own" category and include them on voting ballots that my backers can use to choose which games I'll film every month. A few times a year, when my backers get to vote on what new games I'll buy, that list is comprised of the top thumbed games that I don't own from this list.

So if you really want to see something covered, list it here (if it's not already listed, and isn't one of the games above) and get it some thumbs!

Also, I want to give a HUGE shout out to BGG user

who made a nice little app for me to automatically count thumbs to save me the trouble of doing it by hand. Here's the link if anyone would like an at-a-glace view of where their favourite request is standing: http://thumbs.rahdo.com

Also, not for nothing, but I still choose the majority of games to be covered by Rahdo Runs Through, and this list will definitely influence me too when choosing games to film

One of my favorite games is Maharaja, and that has made me strongly desire another Kramer and Kiesling game. But most of them have seemed a bit too fiddly and non-thematic for me to really justify adding to my collection.

Looking back through both of their individual games, I found Goldland. The rules seem like they might have the simplicity of something like Maharaja, while also retaining a thematic foundation that I personally like in a game.

The game is out of print, and there isn't a lot of information about it. It would be nice to see it played before hunting down a used copy.

Although this is designed by a different designer, this is said to be the prequel to Fresco. I do not know where that comes from. However, Fresco looks like it is more interesting (that is better looking board aesthetics, etc.) Still interested in what Liguria is all about, though.

I'd be really interested in at least a Talk Through of the changes and new components if you pick this up to replace the original version that's no longer in your collection. A full run through would be really cool though since CO2's original run through was one of your very early videos.

This is one of my all time favourite games by GMT (a publisher whom I hugely respect). Two sides vying for control of feudal Japan; one fighting for the life and legitimacy of a child heir, and the other - the usurper - looking to claim power over the country for himself.

It's a block game, where the strength and composition of your opponent's forces are hidden from you, with an element of bluffing through card-play and clever hand management.

Absolute gem, and quite fast-playing.

Would love to see a run-through and final thoughts!

I know this is on Kickstarter now but just wondering if this was on your radar or not? Or your thoughts on it?

I've watched a few videos and read the rules, but I just can't get a good feel on how well it plays with just 2 players.

It seems like it may still be pretty open and you lose out on the tension that you would expect from worker placement games.

Kinda how I feel about 2 players Kingsburg - you never really get locked out. Sure, you may not get the first choice spot you are hoping for, but it's easy enough to come up with a Plan B.

And there certainly is a lot of areas to go to in Rise to Nobility

This one is nearly finished production and should be available in a couple months.

I know the designers approached you about doing a run through before their kickstarter, and got knocked back.
I'd really like you to reconsider - the game was originally designed to be 2p (though plays up to 5), is not cutthroat (some optional random special powers can be aggressive, but are optional), and has a lot of depth from a simple rule set.
Unless the theme is an issue, it seems like it would be a good fit for RRT.

Played this last weekend at Herne convention and now saw it on Rahdo's Unfilmed list. Would love to see a runthrough for it.

You have the Puerto Rico action selection and secret victory point conditions. They bring a momory element to the game, which I tend not to like, but here I found it quite nice. What do Jen and Rahdo think?

A new Kickstarter project! From the BGG page:
Dwarven Smithy is 2-4 player, dwarven themed card crafting and hand/area management card game. Players work to gain gold by utilizing limited space in their workshop. Player craft items, gain special abilities and tools using a variety of resources. Players choose to draw resources and/or guild cards but the cards can also be purchase from other players or players can purchase resources from a warehouse. Use abilities to change the rules, tools to use fewer resources in making orders or sell crafted items. Special King's Items made for the King are revealed at the end of the game

In watching the explanation videos it has some elements of Splendor (building an engine early to increase long term effectiveness) as well as some risk management as you can make some of your resources available for others to buy out from you in order to speed up your production cycle. Fairly simple turn structure but appears to have some depth and of course the fantasy theme and artwork looks very nice. Even if it's too late for Rahdo to run through it for the campaign might be good down the road for those who may have missed out!
