My worst subject throughout has always been foreign languages. I took both Spanish and Latin in high school. I continued with Latin in college because I had to fulfill a requirement and since it was a dead language we didn't spend much time speaking it.

Anyway, I was reading EnderWiggins review: What kind of nonsense is this? A Pictorial Review of Board Game Latin and thought I would see how many games have Latin names and what those names might mean.

I haven't done anything with Latin in more than a decade. So, there are probably errors. There are also a few that I know I don't know. So, if you do please comment. Also, feel free to add any I might have missed even if you don't know the translation.
