Hobby Games: The Best 100

03 Sep

Linnaeus blogged about the ‘100 Games’ meme:

 “To celebrate (and promote) Green Ronin’s Hobby Games: The Best 100 book, lots of people have been playing the Best 100 meme game, where the 100 best hobby games (as listed in the abovementioned book, just released and available at a game store near you) are rolled out and the blogger’s personal experience with them is detailed.”

Boldface if “I own this game.”
Italics is “I have played this game.”
An asterisk (*) indicates I have only played it online.
Italic and Bold are “I both own and have played this game.”

There are some challenges in definition of ownership in a mixed gamer marriage. See notes below 🙂
