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

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 one doesn't have much in the way of good videos yet.

It keeps tempting me but I feel unsure about it.

A Richard Ham video would make it easy to make a final decision.

Always wondering if a Christmas theme game is any good because I like a Christmas theme but it has to have more going for it than just theme.

Co-op Yeah!
DnD Yeah!

But wondering if it will be too heavy for us and how well it plays at 2 players.

The rulebook of this new game from Indonesia is not crystal clear so it feels like a runthrough would be great to understand whether this is indeed a hidden gem.

I know this one is heavy dice rolling but it's coop, it does not take long and most important it's a lot of fun. and so much variability.
