We're far enough along in the project that I can share the list of writers participating in Family Games: The 100 Best. As with Hobby Games: The 100 Best each essayist discusses a board game, card game, miniatures game, wargame, or RPG that he or she consideres one of "the best." The essay topic can't be a game the essayist designed or a game in which he or she has a direct financial stake. Topics don't include any games covered in HG100, though there will be an appendix listing titles from the first book that meet our definition of "family game."

About half the essayists did not participate in the first volume, and many are BGG regulars.
