This is a list of 40 games from my collection that might be fun to play. It ignores children's games, bad games I keep around for the miniatures, lots of wargames, and probably some other games that are disqualified for bad reasons. The first half is multiplayer thematic or card games, and the second half is generally two-player abstract or wargames.
