Roll and Write games
They sometimes include a solitaire variant out-of-the-box.
The archetype of these is Yahtzee, but all kinds of games have appeared since, with all kinds of twists.
Unlike Yahtzee, most modern incarnations include player interaction. Sometimes in the form of dice selection, and sometimes in being the first to complete a certain goal, locking other players out.

Games that ARE NOT Roll & Writes even though they involve "rolling" and "writing"
When submitting a new game to this list, please try to avoid pure dice games.
If a game include a score pad, it does not immediately turn into a roll & write. Many games come with a pad of paper simply to track the players' score, after they roll a few dice, and can be replaced with a score track.
What differentiate R&W games (in the opinion of this author) is some kind of decision-making, either in the choice of which dice to use when filling the sheet, or HOW the sheet is filled.
There are a few games on this list that I do not personally think belong here, and I keep around to preserve the conversation around it, or waiting until some consensus is formed on whether or not they should stay.
Games that ARE Roll & Writes even though they don't involve "rolling" or "writing"
Some games use other methods than dice as their randomizers, such as flipping a card from a deck, or drawing a token from a bag. Personally, these are just variations on the form and are welcome here.
Similarly, some games do not involve writing, and use a more physical method of marking on a sheet, such as placing tokens on a board. These are also welcome here and you're welcome to explain why.
Style of entries
This geeklist should be fun to explore and discover new games, and read opinions about games you're familiar with.
* Please describe a bit how the game works (not too much - you're welcome to highlight what you think is interesting or unique about it, and make comparisons to other games).
* Please share an image or two of how it looks. Real-world images of the games in progress or at their end are preferable to marketing banners or mockups - if the BGG gallery doesn't have those, maybe add your own image!
* You're welcome to share your own opinion about the game, or compare it to other games.
* Designers are welcome to submit entries for their own games, but whether you're a designer or not, please avoid too much marketing-speak and copy-pasting the publisher's blurbs if they're not very descriptive.
* Please avoid submitting extra entries for expansions - these can be added to the entries themselves, or as comments if you can't edit the entry. Likewise for reimplementations/reprints/repackagings if they don't significantly change the nature or look-and-feel of the game.
