PURPOSE OF THE LIST

The purpose of this list is to provide substitutes for games we love / enjoy and more choices for games we wish to get / play. How? By challenging you to top the games of the list with others you consider better! The only requirement being that they are similar in some way (preferably the gameplay).

WAYS TO CONTRIBUTE

There are various ways for you to contribute to the list and everyone is encouraged to do so! Your options are:

1) Top a game with one that you prefer and is similar in some way. *
2) Thumb / comment on a game that is indeed top-notch and there is nothing similar that can top it.
3) Add a game of your choice to be topped! **
4) Any other other constructive contribution you can think of...


* A few words about your suggestion, documenting why you prefer it would be great.
NOTE: You CAN top a game with another game of the list, it's not forbidden.
** If you are looking for some specific aspects of the game you add, mention them. (Photos are optional)
*** Some entries consist of more-than-one games. In this case, you have the extra option of choosing one of them, if you can't top them.

SOME MORE INFO

I have started this list with a bunch of games and I will be adding more occasionally. As mentioned earlier, your personal additions are welcome too! Yes, I know that some games are easier than others to top.
Games are listed alphabetically for easy reference.
Photos are not mine. Many thanks to their uploaders, all credit goes to them.
If you can think of ways to improve the list, please mention them...


Please thumb the list! The more participants, the more informative the list will be!
And of course... subscribe!

Thank you for your contribution!

This is the best press your luck game ever! It doesn't matter that it is just a filler because you will be compelled to play it over and over again. I own King of Tokyo. I have played Farkle. I have owned and played Yahtzee probably 500 times, but Can't Stop gives the rush gambling, regardless of stakes that the others just can't do.
