With a growing pile of unplayed games, it's difficult for me to call this a Top 100 Games of "All Time" when I know a handful are going to make this list should I ever get around to playing them.

Regardless, I find many of the games below to be quite good. Some are even, dare I say, excellent. Also, a few are pretty terrible but I like them anyway and that's fine. Totally fine.

Thing to know: I play games 90-95% of the time two player only with my wife, so take that into account when looking through the games.

Right, now to the list.

I'll admit that this game made the list mostly because of the laughs it can provide. To be honest, I can see how some people would find it frustrating to watch your ship get blown up, bit by bit.

Sometimes, the best part of an RPG is building your character.

It's a little sad that this game never got an expansion. I could see them easily being able to add in more cards for added variety.

We recently took a trip to Maui and bought all the Hawaiian-themed games we could find. This one was a pleasant surprise, but I could see it dropping off this list in the future.

This won't be the first game from Ryan Laukat on this list. I really like his art style and Islebound is no exception.

We generally like to bring small games to the breweries in our area. This one has made several trips and always seems to go over well.

Maybe it's because it's a Tolkien theme, but this is our favorite version of Love Letter.

This felt like Robinson Crusoe: The Card Game, but with less ways to mitigate negative effects. We haven't won yet, but I'm still interested in exploring more of this little gem.

My wife loves games like Bejeweled, so this was a no-brainer. I love the look of the game and the simplicity of the rules.

While there's not a ton of "game" here, I haven't laughed so much with a game in a long time.

Look, any game that lets me explain that the shape of the cubes is in fact thematic deserves to be on this list.

I like this particular form of worker placement, though the theme isn't a huge draw. We definitely don't play with the airstrikes as much as we should, but we don't house rule them out either.

This game would probably rank higher if it weren't for the set up time. I've heard the custom inserts solve this problem a bit, but I just haven't had the chance to acquire one.

The art doesn't do this game any favors, but it's a fun two player game that gives each player a lot to think about.

This is one of those games that I enjoyed more without the expansion, though I can see its appeal for some.

This game really only makes this list once the expansions are added in. Otherwise, it was slightly bland (other than the card gimmick).

I love games with this adventure theme, but it also manages to mix a fairly good deckbuilder with a racing game. I was definitely pleasantly surprised.
