Proposed yucata.de games

If you think YES - I WANT THIS GAME AT YUCATA.DE then give thumbs up to that entry.
Entries with many thumbs up may have better chances to be implemented
If you think you can help yucata.de, just tell me (send me an E-Mail). If you are a .NET-Developer or want to learn the technology you might realize a game of your own. We also have need for someone helping with the images/graphics.
Criteria for games at yucata.de
* No player interaction. Trading and actions are usually bad. Veto cards are usually bad, since after each action of each player, each other player needs to be asked if he wants to say 'veto'.
* Not too many microactions/phases. This is no fun to play as PBW. At least not for most people.
* No memory effect: Remember who has taken what, and so on. This does not really work in PBW. This is why Stratego would not be a good option.
* Two-player games. The vast majority of games played at yucata.de are two-player-games. I will think a long time before adding a game which does not have a good 2-player version.
I prefer themed Eurogames. This does not mean that I will never add new abstract board games but they are not at the top of my list.
2010-04: I just removed most of the abstracts. There are better platforms for abstract games than yucata.de.
2010-05: I sorted again by number of thumbs. That's a manual and painful process. I also deleted games nobody wanted, games which could not be played with two players, games by Knizia.
2010-09: I sorted again and deleted a few games nobody wanted.
2011-10: I removed a heap of games which don't have any real chance to make it to Yucata. I should delete at least 50 more, but many of the proposed games I still don't know...
The list is becoming pretty long and BGG is missing a sort feature. User Grimwold created a small script to help us out.
