100 Best (Family Edition)

I have been given the greenlight to talk about Family Games: The 100 Best. Think of it as a companion volume to Hobby Games: The 100 Best, which I wrote about continuously last year.

I’m in *very* good company once again. As I said before, they got 99 great game designers, and then they asked me to fill out the roster. With any luck I’ll win another 1/99 of an award or two – trust me, I don’t mind. Enough with the self-deprecating humor. Check out this list:
