Hey everybody. I film a series of boardgame runthrough videos called Rahdo Runs Through and if you've ever had a game you'd like me to cover, you've come to the right place. Here you can add new games to the list and I'll "consider it". But your job isn't limited to just adding games...

If you see something you like, whether you added it or not, be sure to thumbsup it!!! Every month, I'll pick one game from the list to film, and the more thumbs it's got, the more likely it'll be the one! So THUMB THUMB THUMB!

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, the following list is stuff that will likely get a game culled:

• games that don’t work well with 2 players
• games that feature direct player conflict
• party games
• memory games
• abstract games
• competitive deduction games
• roll-to-resolve games
• kid’s games
• games with certain settings (violent horror, adult, sports, politics)

So if you really want to see something covered, add it to the geeklist (if it's not already listed and it's not one of those things I said above) and get it some thumbs!

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

A thinky filler. You are merchants attempting to ship four different types of goods while avoiding the pirate raids. Set collection with hand management. Played this at a convention and enjoyed it so much we bought it as soon as we got home. Would love your take on it!

Players are friendly spirits guiding souls from the world of the dead to the land of the living. Different from the usual themes. Looks intriguing. On KS now.

This new deck of cards complement the existing cards of It’s a Wonderful World. From now on, each turn, you will play a mixture of classic Development cards and Ascension cards. Ascension cards introduce new ways to play, most notably through pair scoring and corruption.(from the BGG page)

This new deck also allows you to play with up to 6 players.

Integrates with Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Thames Murders & Other Cases (Rahdo's playthrough)
a coop deduction game

"The Baker Street Irregulars is a standalone game containing ten cases, including introductory cases that are perfect for new players, while also offering novel mechanisms and surprises to give seasoned investigators something different."(BGG description)

(quotes from the designer (Source: Solving crimes that aren't murder ):
whitescar wrote:
I designed Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Baker Street Irregulars with the conscious aim of ensuring the cases were more varied than being all/majority murders, and wanted murders to be rare. (...)
whitescar wrote:
Reading more of these posts and thinking about it further has made realise that in Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Baker Street Irregulars for most cases the players don't actually know what crime they're investigating. In fact, sometimes they don't even know whether they're investigating a crime at all. I think I've always found unusual or inexplicable events more interesting than murders.
EDIT: added the actual description of the gamewhistleblush

"Lead the United States or Soviet Union Space Agency in this engine building, worker placement, race for the moon Eurogame.

Play on a team of one or two players where each player on a team controls either the Engineer Workers or the Administrator Workers for their team.

Coordinate your actions with your teammate on each of your turns to either place an Engineer or Administrator Worker on board actions(...)
Which type of Worker you place changes the effect that a board action has. Each board action can only be used once each round, so placing a Worker does not only prevent your opponents from using the action but prevents your teammate from using the action's alternative effect with their workers."
(BGG description)

It looks like it was designed as a 4 player game. They say it can also be played with 2 players.
Is it a good 2 player only game?
