A year ago, I posted the first GAMES 100, and it was well received, so here is the second one.

In the Nov/Dec 1981 issue of Games Magazine, they published their first "Games 100" list. Entries were not restriced to new games. This list is less than 100 entries long, because electronic games and game systems (like the Intellivision), as well as puzzles (like Rubik's Cube) are among the 100 games.

If there is a comment other than the rules summary, I have included it. The list was presented in alphabetical order, so I am doing the same. I have listed the publisher, price, entry level, playing time and game type (chance, strategy, action) as listed in the magazine. Note that their use of strategy is pretty loose, and really means skill. And the easy/medium/difficult is supposed to be entry difficulty, not difficulty of the game. References to reviews or features have also been included.

I have selected pictures that are as similar to the picture in the magazine as possible.

Games I don't find in the data base:
Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set ( TSR Hobbies, $12) - Don't see this in BGG

The other entries in the Games 100:
Air Traffic Controller (Bandai, $50) - electronic game
Baseball 3 (Entex, $50) - handheld electronic simulation
