I realized today that one of my favorite books, Connection Games, is wildly out of date. It got me thinking about what games should be added to a 2nd Edition (to be clear, I don't know of any plans to publish a second edition; this is just daydreaming). See the post here

Could you maybe add the games of the first edition to the list, for users who don't have a copy?

Big job, but maybe I'll try this weekend.

Thanks, Nick, for including Trig, which, by the way, has celebrated its 20th birthday this year.

Actually I brought it to Cameron's attention back in 2010, and he was kind enough to add it (as an example of Connective Goal, IIRC) to his list for inclusion in a putative second edition.

If that does ever come about, it would be nice if the entry heading could be The Summer-House Floor, that being the overarching title for the suite of three games of which Trig is merely the simplest.

Incidentally, I notice that Cameron's email mentioned in passing a game called Onyx, which doesn't appear to be on your list.

Onyx is already in the book, which is why I didn't mention it. Cool game.

Does someone remember the name of the connection game designed by a kid? Remember seeing it last year.
