The Sumos 2021*

You know what the asterisk means. Again. I have played more games this year than 2020, but am still well down on my usual 200+. However, I am back to twenty+ games that were worthy of consideration.

I am introducing a new category. A Tainted Sumo is awarded to a game that is very, very good but currently costs over £100 and/or is painfully difficult to buy and/or is KS restricted in some way. These releases are not part of my hobby, but annoyingly desireable nevertheless.

These are my favourite ten games of those I played in 2021.
