NOTE: Since Rahdo announced that it was too much work to maintain the Games of Interest list in 2020, I volunteered to set this up. This is done with his permission. And I'm copying his much of his previous header since it has so much info about what's in the list

Where I am able, I will include a snippet of why Rahdo says the game is on his list.

I'm starting with his Top 25 Most Anticipated Games of 2020 (youtube and podcast) and as time permits, add others from his podcasts after that.

Hey everybody. Are you ready for another year of games of interest? Okay, here's the previous years I've covered:

2012 / 2013 / 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 / 2019

And like those lists, this geeklist will be constantly updated throughout the year, listing any games that I discover that I find interesting. Bear in mind, I'll only include games that work with 2 players. Also, this list will be generally kind of euro-leaning, and most games will likely be lower on the conflict scale, because that's what my wife and I like to play.

Also also, it's not going to be alphabetically sorted, because that gets really obnoxious I find, when people are subscribing.

Finally, for games (and expansions) to make it on the list, they need to be ranked as at least a 3 on my personal wishlist (3="Like to have"). Everything else I stumble across that piques some level of interest I'll rank as a 4 ("Thinking about it") and subscribe to it, but I won't add it to this list until enough info comes out that convinces me to upgrade it to a 3 (or a 2 "Love to have" or a 1 "Must have").

My full wishlist of games is HERE for anyone who'd like to peruse the titles that are in the "thinking about it" category...

Okay, with that out of the way, let's start listing!!!

- Love The Networks
- 2 player only streamlined to play in 30-45 minutes

Note: The kickstarter for this game ends Feb 14, 2020. I (Adrienne) assume the game will be available for purchase afterwards like most of Formal Ferret's other games.

- interesting game play idea. The players do not play Solomon Kane or his underlings, but as one of the four Cardinal Virtues: Courage, Prudence, Temperance, and Justice, who try to exert influence in their sphere to get Solomon Kane to do certain things

I've loved the idea of this every since I heard of it: you're a humble villager who wants to defend your town from rampaging barbarians, so you get training from the village elders, but if you spend too much time training, the town will be overrun. So a clever balancing act must be struck, it would seem.
And since the podcast, a note from one of the designers on the game's forum

Things fell through with the game and a publisher we were working with, so we are focusing on other projects for now. We might return to the design at a future date.
