Hobby Games Essayists Assemble!

The esteemed editor Jim Lowder has given a hundred or so people permission to release the list of essayists they’re joining for Family Games: The 100 Best, the follow-up to the award-winning Hobby Games: The 100 Best. I happen to be one of those lucky souls, and here’s that amazing list.

We can’t say what we’re writing about yet. The only real rule was that we couldn’t cover a game we worked on. That, of course, left plenty great games to choose from.

The book should be out in late August. I can’t wait to read it.

  1. What a great collection of people. I wonder how many of us look at that list and think “Man, I’m the least “big deal” name on there!”

  3. Hmm… the presence of David Millians for at least an appendix is handy. But I admit surprise that Bill Walton or Sam Chupp, two of the big kids-and-gaming advocates, are not on it. This seems to be a perennial recurrence.
