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,
, Kingsport: Festival, Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game, Lords & Ladies, Letters from Whitechapel, Level 7 [Omega Protocol], Manhattan Project: Chain Reaction, Mystery Rummy: Jack the Ripper, Mr Jack Pocket, Neuroshima Hex, New Bedford, New Era, star realms, Quartermaster General, saltlands, Steam Torpedo, Scythe, Tally Ho, Thunder Alley, Twlight Struggle, Wir Sind Das Volk, Zombie Survival, Warfighter, Zombie State

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

Less than ideal for 2:
Antidote, Asara, Automobile, Camel Up, Catan, Chicago Express, coutier, dominaire, Dwarves Inc, elfenroads, El Grande, Egizia, Fate of the Norns, Fief: France 1429, Gauntlet of Fools, Goldbrau, Grand Cru, Green Deal, The Hare & The Tortise, Imperial, I'm the Boss, Infection: Humanities Last Gasp, Isarabi, Istanbul: Letters & Seals, The Last Spike, Lost Valley, Manifest Destiny, motto, Orcs Orcs Orcs, Pandemic: Contagion, Peak Oil, Rattus, Red 7, Robin des Bois, Rockwell Expansion, Sail to India, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Siege of Sunfall, Sneaks & Snitches, Stephensons Rocket, Study in Emerald 2nd Ed, Tinner's Trail, Wealth of Nations, Zooloretto

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

This is a fun exploration/ tile laying game where you're trying to take control of islands and change the price of the resources so that the ones you have are worth as much as possible.
The actions you can do are determined by the cards you have at hands and the number of ships you have on an island.

A game lasts about 45min and there's almost no take that in it, the only take-that-ish element are the pirates lair that increase the cost of actions on neighboring islands.

Plus it has a lot of cool tiny meeples in it

Edit: This game brings you back to Longsdale (the world of Oh my Goods!) and introduces a new story line through the life of Tybor the Builder. Multipurpose cards, the same artist, and one shared designer - Oh My Goods! with the Revolt in Longsdale expansion was Rahdo's #1 Tardis game, surely this must be interesting as well. meeple

I know it's a cliche, but I feel that the Unrest expansion "completes" the solo experience of Nations: The Dice Game. IMO, the solo game is now tighter and has more drama and tension. The pass bonus/penalty mechanism adds a push-your-luck feel to the game and the new Unrest dice can really make or break you.

Rahdo, I picked up the base game on your recommendation and I'm dying to know what you think of the expansion's effect on the 2-player game.

The box says 3-6 but the designer himself said the game can be played with 2 players, it's just a titch more difficult. See the following thread: 2 Player Game

This game looks great and I'd love to see it get more coverage.

To me this puts Port Royal on a new level. The coop is just stellar and I love the fact that the 'push your luck' element get even more nail-bitting because if you fail then it is bad for everybody.
