WOW, game designs really escalate sometimes.

In the post below I was just trying to get a list of dances for an 18 card game.
I needed 12 dances.

Wonderful people suggested great ideas and I thought of making more versions/expansions.
They will be small games and could be combined together.

I don't want to burst your bubble, but as a clumsy American geek, I wouldn't know how or be able to do *ANY* of those listed dances except for the Hokey Pokey offhand. Your game would be an instant failure from me before I even bothered to take off the shrinkwrap.

I can also tell you that at least 3/4 of those styles of dance are completely foreign to me as well.

If you included instructions for each of them, then that's a different expectation, since I at least know of many of these, but I wouldn't have any fun at all with this game if I'm expected to know/be able to do even a quarter of these.

That I can dance? Oh, you've got quite a few, but I see you are missing:

Line Dance
Square Dance
Polka (not of the Russian variety)
Folk Dance

Now, mind you, Folk Dance is the larger dance style that includes dances like a Polka. Like how the Electric Slide is a type of Line Dance.

You have Viennese Waltz, but I'd classify that as a subtype of Waltz, since most people won't know the difference.
