I've picked games that are easily available, and ones that have a lot of theme.  I know that there are many girls in game clubs, but since the overwhelming majority is often guys, I've tilted my list slightly towards them.  I've excluded out of print games, games that work in class better than they do in club, and games that make better family games. - Tom Vasel.
