At the beginning of 2017 I feel like there are a lot of games that I still want to play or purchase from 2016, so I wanted to make a top 100 list that included the possibly of 25 games to "play" their way on to the list.

Black Orchestra

This one hits the list at 25 mainly due to the fact that this World War 2 theme is perfect for my wife. I hope to give this a try this year.

I love Saboteur, but a two player version would get it to the table more often.

The two things I thought this game needed was another character and the ability to play as the marshal. So that has this one high on my list.
