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!

I keep waiting for the wargame content to appear in the show. You've shown the 18xx love, now how about the wargames??

Angola is an excellent game, and certainly quite hefty. It's long game, but such a fun game! The gameplay is so juicy. The tension is fantastic. The twists and turns as each side pushes its way toward victory. Even the victory conditions are tasty.

It does have dice rolls for combat resolution, so I'm sure it will be hard to convince Tony to play it. But even the combat mechanisms are tweaked and it stands on its head compared to a typical Combat Resolution Table. It really is interesting, thoughtful, and challenging.

This is an excellent medium Eurogame that does not get the credit it deserves. I have likened it to "Die Macher lite". The only downside is that it only works with exactly 4 players.

Not as heavy as some others listed, but after listening to the Argent: The Consortium review I reckon the "I'll take that" mechanic in this game comes across much better with the thematic integration and would appeal to the Heavy Cardboard crew.

Brain-roasty city builder from Alban Viard. BGG weight rating of 3.8, which is decidedly in the wheelhouse.

I know you guys have grown away from Feld a bit, but this is a fantastic game. I'd be interested in hearing your analysis.

Would like to hear your thoughts I realize it is not heavy but it is unique and edgy.
