So far, we tracked the proposals through a global list: Proposed yucata.de games
But after 10 years, the list is getting too cluttered and there are some items with hundreds of thumbs where new entries don't stand a chance to catch up.
This is why we are now creating a new list every year or so.
If you think YES - I WANT THIS GAME AT YUCATA.DE then give thumbs up to that entry. If the game is missing on the list, you may add it.
When adding a game, please write a short comment why you would want the game at Yucata and why it would be a good fit. Think about which games you really want to see at Yucata and don't mindlessly add lots of games. Game additions which do not follow that request might be deleted without further discussion.
Criteria for games at yucata.de
* No direct player interaction. Trading is usually bad for an async site. Veto cards are usually bad, since after each action of each player, each other player needs to be asked if he wants to say 'veto'.
* Not too many microactions/phases. This is no fun to play as PBW. At least not for most people.
* No memory effect. Remembering who has taken what, and so on. This does not really work in PBW. On Yucata we always assume a perfect memory and show all information which has been shown once. This is why Stratego would not be a good option for Yucata.
* No cooperative games
* Translates well to 2 dimensions. Games which have a 3D element to the gameplay don't tend to do well at Yucata. This is why Santorini has been rejected.
* Two-player games. The vast majority of games played at yucata.de are two-player-games, so all entries should play reasonably well with two. We have very few games without 2-player option. So, don't add them. If a developer is bent on implementing a 3+ game, he can choose it himself without referring to this list.
We prefer themed Eurogames. This does not mean that we will never add new abstract board games but they are not at the top of our list.
Note: These are our current criteria for new implementations and games that don't meet them will be deleted. (Some of our existing games helped shape the criteria so don't use them as a guide).
For each game we need to get a license to host it online. Some publishers are very open to the idea, some publishers won't allow it at all and many other publishers are deciding on a case-by-case basis. Some publishers who worked a lot with yucata.de in the past, have now founded their own digital division and try to earn money with apps.
Here's an indication.
Publishers very open towards implementations on yucata.de (not complete): AEG, Alea, Hall Games, Histogame, Hans-im-Glück, Kosmos, PD-Spiele, Schmidt-Spiele, Spielworxx, White Goblin Games
Dear publisher: If your company should be on this list, let me know!
Publishers who so far didn't grant licenses: Adlung-Spiele, Cwali, Days of Wonder, Iello, Hasbro, Ravensburger, Schwerkraft
Publishers we are not working with: Queen Games, all games by Reiner Knizia, Eggert Spiele / Plan B Games
