SPECIAL NOTE - THe last few years have been a really sad on the amount of participation. Please note, there are no right or wrong answers, if you can't think of your "top", write down some you remember as being good. Let's do this!

Here is your chance to share your favorite casual games with others and help them enjoy the best of the best!

Please list your top 20 favorite casual games, any genre, any year (the more current the better), in alphabetical order (please and thank you) and submit them in this thread anytime between now and February 5th, 2017.

Like last year, you can name 5 top series that you may want to recommend as well. Please list those separate from the individual but you can post them in the same post.

Please do not edit once you have submitted your list because they will be recorded as they are posted. If you want to add a game and you didn't choose 20 the first time, you can post again for the additional ones only. You cannot exceed 20 in total!

I hope to see lots of entries, the list is a wonderful resource for those looking to branch out into casuals or to give you new ideas of games to check out in case you missed them.

We will not be separating the games into categories, so no need to be specific as to the genre.

Have fun thinking of your lists and looking forward to seeing all of your favorites.

Ana joy

1. Adam Wolfe: Flames of Time
2. Beyond: Star Descendant

5. Delicious: Emily's Christmas Carol
6. Delicious: Emily's Message in a Bottle
7. Enigmatis: The Mists of Ravenwood
8. Fabulous: Angela's Fashion Fever
9. Haunted Hotel: The X
10. Heart's Medicine: Time to Heal
11. Incredible Dracula: Chasing Love
12. Lost Lands: The Wanderer

Most of the above games are available in both CE and standard versions; I did not make a distinction, as I feel that either choice would be entertaining. I have many older favorite casuals, but the majority of these games came out in 2016.

Thank you for your help with this, Ana. I look forward to seeing the other lists. reindeer happydance12

I made a list last year because we rarely talk in detail about individual casual games and because it's a pain in the neck to thumb through BFG reviews of any particular game and look for reviewers who aren't sycophants or, put another way to be more polite, so universally approving that their opinions have no weight. I will make a list again this year. I'm already downloading a game from the 2017 selections.

I can't come up with 20, only 16. However, in some cases I have noted that other games in the same series are also good.

Amaranthine Voyage – Winter Neverending (others in this series are good, this one is the best)
Bridge to Another World – Alice
Christmas Stories – Nutcracker
Clockwork Tales – Glass and Ink
Eternal Journey – New Atlantis
Forbidden Secrets – Alien Town
House of 1000 Doors – Family Secrets (this is a good series also)
Living Legends – Bound by Wishes
Lost Lands – The Wanderer (another good series)
Margrave – Blacksmith's Daughter (one of my Top Ten ever)
Mystery Case Files – Broken Hour (ditto the above)
Mystery Case Files - Dire Grove, Sacred Grove (unusual, more than a "casual")
New York Mysteries – Lantern of Souls (another good series)
Riddles of Fate – Wild Hunt
Royal Detective – Legend of the Golem
Shiver – Moonlit Grove
