GAMES Magazine's Best Games of 1987
- Stephen Roney(sroney)United States
From 1980 though 1986, GAMES magazine published the GAMES 100, which was a list of 100 games, both old and new. In 1987, under new management, they changed the focus to "games introduced within the last year (or, in some cases, games whichhave only recently become widely available)."Recommend
The list was only fifty entries long, though two contain two games. It is divided by type, but otherwise unordered.
The following items are not in the BGG database:
The Next Word - Decipher, $25, 2 players - "combines wordplay and pure strategy"
Fantasy and Science Fiction
Traveller: 2300 - Game Designers Workshop, $20, 2-8 players - "a state-of-the-art SF role-playing game"
Star Wars - West End, $20, 2-8 players - "This long-awaited role-playing gmae lets the force be with you"
The Puzzler - Denver Mold Engineering, $8 - "Spin the two wheels until the colored pieces are scrambled thouroughly"
