The Challenge:

Stephen must find five non-classic games that we would enjoy and be able to play when we are 80 years old.
 

Stephen's List

Stephen's Vote

Lost Cities Thumbs Up
Gipf Thumbs Up
Battle Line Thumbs Up
Blood Bowl Thumbs Up
Duell Thumbs Up

A perfect score! Stephen keeps his title for another week.

Next week's challenge:

Dave must find five non-classic games that he can teach to non-English speakers. They must be able to learn the game and play well. No team games allowed and at least one game must be multi-player.

Errata

The other games in the Gipf series are Tamsk, and Dvonn.  I'm sure there are more goofs in there somewhere. Let us know if (when?) you find one!
