Gaming theory list

John Harper in his blog says that the best way to understand gaming theory is to play these games. It's a list that heavily loaded towards indie games and so I own almost all of them (all but one in this list). However there are a few I've not yet played (in italics). I would add GUMSHOE to this list as it does things that no other game does whereas I'm not sure you need so many indie games. And what about Rocky & Bullwinkle or Dallas? Groundbreaking in their time. It's a list that is short on history (or geography, all the games are American bar one or two).

Hey Steve, Contenders and 3:16 are the non-American ones. Joe Prince is from Yorkshire and I'm from Glasgow.

I could never quite place the accent. I thought you were from Wisconsin or something. Well caught.

I thought you played Contender with us at Simon's? You remember "Lucky" :)

No, I missed that session for whatever reason. I might remember Lucky though.
