Just what the title says. It's prettier than using a spreadsheet. Games are listed in general order of wantage. I tried to select pictures that showed the game itself, as opposed to the box containing the game. This will always be a work in progress.

1. Ora et Labora
2. Kingdoms
3. Hansa Teutonica
4. Taluva
5. Flowerpower
6. Goa
7. Gemblo Light
8. Carcassonne: Discovery
9. Mimic
10. Elfenland
11. Wayfinder
12. Ta Yu
13. Keesdrow
14. Sunda to Sahul
15. Very Clever Pipe Game
16. M
17. Maharaja: Palace Building in India

Comments are welcome, but I'm not allowing additions for obvious reasons.

Major update. Eliminated a bunch that don't work well with 2p.
Update: I've been eliminating games I have acquired or just don't want on the list anymore. I just realized that continuing along this track could leave me with an empty list someday. Not sure that's a good idea.
