These ratings are an average from about 15 different non-gamer friends and relatives including my brother, sister-in-law, teenage cousins, party girls, parents, boyfriends, girlfriends...the works. Not all of them have played every game, but I had them all give me feedback based on the games I've put them all through. I'll continue to update the list as more games hit the table or as some of the ones below make a return to the table.

6 being the highest rating and 1 being the lowest, based on their feedback and me scrutinizing their gameplay.

I've gotten to know which friends will dig which games. Hopefully this'll help you as a starter guide for your NGFs. It is my hope that every game finds a proper audience in someone.

The "Friend Quote" is just because an outsiders point-of-view can be refreshing at times. The "Replay Chance" is the percent chance of whether I think I'll be able to get my NGFs (non-gamer friends) to play again.

Please add your comments based on your experiences with non-gamers who've ventured into world of some of these games.
