NOTE: Since Rahdo announced that it was too much work to maintain the Games of Interest list in 2020, I volunteered to set this up. This is done with his permission. And I'm copying his much of his previous header since it has so much info about what's in the list

Where I am able, I will include a snippet of why Rahdo says the game is on his list.

I'm starting with his Top 25 Most Anticipated Games of 2020 (youtube and podcast) and as time permits, add others from his podcasts after that.

Hey everybody. Are you ready for another year of games of interest? Okay, here's the previous years I've covered:

2012 / 2013 / 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 / 2019

And like those lists, this geeklist will be constantly updated throughout the year, listing any games that I discover that I find interesting. Bear in mind, I'll only include games that work with 2 players. Also, this list will be generally kind of euro-leaning, and most games will likely be lower on the conflict scale, because that's what my wife and I like to play.

Also also, it's not going to be alphabetically sorted, because that gets really obnoxious I find, when people are subscribing.

Finally, for games (and expansions) to make it on the list, they need to be ranked as at least a 3 on my personal wishlist (3="Like to have"). Everything else I stumble across that piques some level of interest I'll rank as a 4 ("Thinking about it") and subscribe to it, but I won't add it to this list until enough info comes out that convinces me to upgrade it to a 3 (or a 2 "Love to have" or a 1 "Must have").

My full wishlist of games is HERE for anyone who'd like to peruse the titles that are in the "thinking about it" category...

Okay, with that out of the way, let's start listing!!!

- worker placement - control family (mother, father, son and daughter). Can hire workers (townsfolk) with special abilities, but at the end of the round, the unchosen townsfolk get rowdy and the player has to deal with that. The player can also keep a specialized worker by having them marry into the family.

- designer Cole Wehrle (Root from Leder Games)
- maybe this will be the game of Cole's that Richard and Jen will enjoy. Like the idea of asymmetrical play, but the other games(*) had too much conflict. Not holding out a lot of hope for that, but until shown otherwise still interested

* A correction to the podcast, Richard had mentioned the other asymmetrical game from Leder Games Vast: The Crystal Caverns as being a Cole Wehrle design, but it was designed by Patrick Leder and David Somerville
