27/07/2020 Over 14 hours of work and all 104 posts representing 110 games are fundamentally complete with picture, link to publisher, and publishers blurb. All games in the library are categorised buy various categories which you can click on to filter. The search has been modified so you can type in (exact spelling) more than one category to search for example ‘3 player fantasy’ would bring up Bloodrage and other 3 player fantasy games.

The website is definitely not complete and the processes are still very much draft. So effectively in open Beta but we want your feedback..

If you see any gaps let us know i.e. games with no pictures, or categories or anything like that.
