I have some new or newer games that I'd like to get played soon. A few will likely get played at an upcoming game day. I'll show this list to players in my group so that we can make some choices.

I'm also trying to decide which games I might be able to teach to my school game club as well. This is mostly about what I and my church group want to play though.

Seems simple to learn but will be quite competitive. Area control game with fun art and theme.

My guess is this will be best with 4. 3 and 5 are likely good as well. 5 will be a bit longer to play.

Very simple to understand how to play. However, playing well will be much more difficult. I'm guessing scores will be fairly close.

Not quite a gateway game but more of a "next step." I'm thinking this one will be a hit with the church group but likely I can't use it at school due to time.

Viral I could simply do less rounds but this games seems like we would need the actual finish.

Dice rolling but with a fair amount of luck mitigation and strategy with which dice to use and when. Art looks amazing.

This one might be more difficult to "sell" as it looks lighter than it actually is. I have a feeling that the play will be fairly easy to teach. However, an abundance of good choices could slow down the game for some players.

Some reviews as saying the game play is amazing but counting the score might turn of few players. I actually think this might be a hit with my church group if they would give it a try.

I sense that final scoring might take a while.

I've only played this twice but it should be a hit with both my church and school groups.

I'll write more about this later but should be a good start or end of day filler.

This one is more of the "new to me" but I think it just might work great at the school game club.

This is another one that looks light and friendly but is likely fairly brutal and competitive.

Friend of mine also has a copy and he might be coming to the Saturday event.

I've only really played one full game and need to learn the rules better. I'm not sure that this Saturday is the best setting for this one but it could work.

This one might have to wait until next month but I didn't want to forget to get this one to the table fairly soon.
