Games We Like

Well, or at least games we still own…

Since I’ve only reviewed games we’ve decided to ditch thus far, I thought I’d give some indication as to games we’ve had better luck with. I don’t really review these, or at least I haven’t yet, because I often feel I don’t understand the gameplay well enough, even after a lot of plays.

This is almost entirely my partner Katy’s collection, by the by. She has both the dosh and the willingness to spend in this family.
