Short List 2019

We play hundreds of different games every year. Each one is given due consideration for The Major Fun Award and The Spiel of Approval.

Inevitably, there are games that might not fit all of the award criteria, but are games we really enjoy nonetheless.

These games make our Short List.

They might not have made the final cut, but any game on our Short List is one we think is engaging and fun.

Read on to explore the list.

I bet you’ll find at least a couple you’ll be itching to try!
