Board Game: Klondike 1896
Want to write game descriptions for titles that need some love? If so, here is what's on the agenda:

Klondike 1896 from new Czech publisher Stragoo Games. Post a comment for this or the next item, and I'll get you started.

Speedway Champion, another release from Stragoo in association with Czech Board Games.

Ugh! from Calliope Games. Strangely, I can't link to the rules directly on the Calliope website – boo, restrictive web design! – but you can find them on this page if you want to call "dibs" and get started.

Takenoko from Matagot is just starting to appear on store shelves, and in honor of its presence we should rewrite the description to tell potential players what they'll actually be doing in the game! English rules (PDF) are available on the Matagot website.

• How about another panda game, this one being the children's game Paul Panda from Beleduc? I somehow ended up with rules for this on my desktop if anyone's interested in redoing the Babelfish in place now.

• What about String Railway: Transport from OKAZU Brand? Lots of attention prior to Spiel 2011, and now? English, French and German rules are available on the game page.

• And my goodness, what about Dungeon Petz, which got lots of love prior to Spiel 2011 and still has folks in the U.S. on the edge of their seats waiting for it to pop up in retail stores? The description could use a bit of expansion to cover what's going on in the game. Anyone want to read over the English rules here on BGG and have at it?
