These are some of the games in my collection I either like to play outright, or just like to play for the Asian theme they have. I plan on using this Geeklist for future game nights so my players can choose what they would like to play off of this list.

Antoine Bauza has done it again with this beautifully created and seen, worker placement-esque game. Traveling from Kyoto to now modern Tokyo (Edo), players must make the most of their travels by stopping in souvenir shops, making new friends, going to a hot spring, and dining out, in this game of travel. Who will have the most interesting journey and yet till manage to have the most fun out of it?

The heaviest Asian themed game I know of and have. You are acting as emissaries of the first ruler of China, trying to bring order and unify the ways of the people you govern. Through laws, currency, and the written language you try to master the people's hearts and minds as you unify China and build points to become the best emissary. The less players there are, the tighter the game is due to the card play.

Great game and an ESSEN 2014 sleeper hit I think. One of the big heavy games of ESSEN 2014 (according to Rahdo) and myself.

Be one with the bamboo. Grow the bamboo. Move the bamboo. Eat the bamboo? In this great light family style game you are controlling multiple parts of the board as you and other players fight for control of the panda, gardener, and bamboo shoots to see who can finish their objectives first. The theme here really shines in this great, fun filled game by Antoine Bauza.

Have not had a chance to play this yet, but I know I will love it. A Risk replacement if there ever was one, Asian style.

One of the biggest hits of its year and till is, King of Tokyo makes you b the monster destroying th city this time around. You get to fight other giant monsters as you rule over Tokyo, but be warned, staying inside Tokyo has its hazards as your power and your prowess spread across the world beckoning other challengers to you. Who will win in this fierce Yahtzee style game?

Just got the new 2014 upgraded version. A nice 2 player game in which you have to make little wins over the curse of the game to win. Feels like tug-of-war. Nice game.

Be the best monk you can be along with your brothers and sisters in this co-op game that will be sure to give you a whoopin and keep asking for more. One of the best co-op games to date and the theme of being a good monk and merely "pushing" the enemies back, feels very thematic versus outright destroying something.

Follow the most famous of all female pirates as you wage war against your rivals in this Chinese pirate themed game. How you go about the card play will allow you to progress further along the board, or to possibly land on a coveted space to gain more power later on.

A quick tile laying game, with a more or less pasted on theme. However, it is a Knizia game, so theme isn't always pasted on as in other designer games.

Risk express crossed with ancient Japan. You are trying to get control of each of the houses and once you get all of a set of them, the clan is yours and you have permanent points which can't be stolen from you. Fun, quick little dice game.
