There are currently 2026 games on the list, of which 705 are dead links. I count a game with many licensees worldwide as one game, and I lump Richard Rognlie's abstract games into one entry, so this number is a bit of an under-count. I'm happy to add any missing games to the list. Someone needs to submit a new entry for the game, using this handy web-based form. The best person to write an entry is the game moderator, but if they can't be bothered, a player can do it.
GMs of games already on the list can submit announcements. These announcements appear in the appropriate category for the game.
Here are lists of games in languages other than English:
