Must try this mix-n-match game system in a box.

2-4 players, listed as anywhere from 30 to 120 minutes. Depends on the world you get, I suppose.

Another game that requires an app to play, I'd like to check it out.

2-4 players, 2 hours, requires a smartphone (for each player?).

DBG in which you play the part of an apex predator that evolves over the course of the game. I've seen reviewers call it challenging but strongly thematic.

2-4 players, 1-2 hours.

Can't remember if the guys have played the original Cash n Guns yet. The second edition is supposed to have just a little more game to it? And the first one was fun.

This Roman civ themed game snuck into the top 100 while I wasn't looking. Sounds like a solid Euro.
