This is the a list for people to make their suggestions for what games I should try to obtain and review next.

Games will be removed if the family and listed here if the family has no interest or after looking into the game it appears to be too difficult or heavy for the family.

I will list the games I currently have on hand that need played and/or reviewed.

If you want a game reviewed, thumb it. The more thumbs the higher priority I'll try to put on it.

My copy is actually the Rampage version but my understanding is that there are no real changes to gameplay.

This one will require a few plays to get deep enough into the judge but I'm willing to put in the work for you!

I think this looks like a nice step up from Sushi Go for the car drafting mechanic.

Looking forward to this one with my daughter. A set collection game with penalties if you can't place some of the animals you obtain.

My wife and I really love this game. It's a little more that my daughter wants to play yet but is a great choice for those times you just want to play with the adults.

A deck combining game where you pick two factions, mix them together and then try to take over bases for points.

Another heavy one that will probably only include my daughter if she helps one of us out. Has worker placement and deduction all in one game.

My wife is really looking forward to this one. She is a huge Little House On the Prairie fan and feels this would be like playing the stories out of the books.
