Ok, so just for fun and maybe slightly aspirational, here a list of ideal games for the LOB games library. Entries need a brief statement justifying taking up space in our sacred cupboard of shame.

[LOB is a London based gaming group. This list is mainly for the amusement of LOB members, but if you feel the overwhelming urge to apostle a game for recommendation to our games library feel free!]

Justification: The game is quick to teach, quick to play, supports different number of players and is already a staple of LOB gaming. Nuff said...

Justification: The game is a great step up from Carcassonne, everyone gets the game pretty quickly and nearly everyone seems to enjoy it. It also doesn't take to long, making it an excellent choice for hosts looking for a game that goes beyond a filler but doesn't take much longer than 30-40 min all in.

And bonus, it looks great on the table.

It is moderately newbie friendly (damn icons!), takes up to 7 players and plays quickly.

It's also too big and heavy to be brought in consistently considering it only takes 30 minutes to play.

Do you remember when this was the other classic filler (before the dark days descended upon us)?

Lots of fun, small box, good filler, can take up to 6 players, rules can be taught in 3 minutes, and always a blast!

Getting away from some of culture which has built up around this at LoB there is a reason this has been so popular, it really distils the traitor mechanic down to it's essentials and is a wonderful night closer.
