Yet another private-use list, this time to highlight the titles in the FMG Design Library suitable for play with oldskool escapist geeks, i.e., the sorts of people I used to make games for.

This list includes several attributes to make selection for a particular circumstance easier:

Durable: Components better than the typical microgame (or FMG game, for that matter) in case we're playing at an eating/drinking establishment.

Portable: Box can fit in my bag.

Small: Playable in a relatively small space.

Huge: Won't fit on a normal desk, need entire dining room table.
