What’s In My Boardgame Pile

We love boardgames. Not the usual Monopoly, Articulate etc, though those are good. I’d say these are a wee bit cooler. We found out about most of them via Tabletop, Wil Wheaton’s gaming show on Geek and Sundry.

Gerbils enjoy boardgames too (to eat).

This post isn’t a full review, it’s simply a list of what games we have with a rating out of 10. Some of them haven’t been played yet. They have also been put into categories so if you’re looking for something specific, this might give you a clue. In the future I’ll be writing full reviews about some of them. If there are any on this list that you would like to know more about, leave a comment below.
