This page contains a list of all games published on this site. We’ve attempted a very simple categorisation of the games, to help you find the games you will enjoy the most. Most games fall into the following categories, with a few self-explanatory exceptions.

  • Race – Players compete to complete a track or objective first
  • Conflict – Players attack each other and capture pieces
  • Control – Players vie for control over the board/cards/pieces
  • Collection – Players try to gain/create sets or combinations to score the most points

All games are also categorised on the dimension of luck vs strategy. “Balanced” means the game includes both luck and strategy in fair amounts. The complexity rating can be interpreted as how long it takes to explain the rules.
