Hey, y'all! The folks in our guild (Heavy Cardboard Guild) have been offering up suggestions on games that they would like to see us review in upcoming episodes of our podcast Heavy Cardboard. I thought it would be easier to have a geeklist to track the games suggested and also to track the interest via thumbs and/or comments left.

So please, suggest away we'll use this as a sounding board/idea board for future featured games! Don't forget to thumb games you'd like to see and/or leave comments!

Let's go for another one which is completely impossible to get. Heavyish Wallace Weuro with a theme that no one other than someone from that part of the world would have any idea about. I'll steal your line where the next negative thing I hear about it will be the first, although I bet it's not for everybody.

Another classic from Mac Gerdts. Shared ownership, shifting alliances, brutal deterministic combat, amazing theme, and the rondel... this is such Heavy Cardboard material.

Discussion in HC guild forums piqued my interest for Harzbahn 1873. Does HC deem this an 18xx or not? The designer says it isn't. Could make for an interesting discussion, plus I'm wondering if 1873 is worth picking up. Thanks!

One of the heaviest games in my collection but one of the best as well. The theme puts off a lot of people but if you get passed that and give it a try you'll know why this is an example of Vlaada Chvatil's creative genius.

This game has been on the 'the Hotness' for a couple months now. What's the other GMT game that is perennially on that list? Is Churchill headed the same way?

Based on Edward's recommendation on the show, I started listening to the "History of Rome" podcast. It reminded me of this heavily thematic game that I only got to play once.

It is old AH-style fare, its mechanics antiquated by modern standards. However, it is dripping with theme and certainly heavy enough to be considered for a feature.
