Welcome to the Games Workgroup
Welcome to the Games Workgroup on Citizendium! We are working on priority topics, or core articles, and have compiled the list below and are trying to work through them one by one. One of the most critical tasks is to complete some of the major headings, as the subtopics are then logically identified and can thus be listed. Please feel free to add to the list as you see fit. We invite you to join us on the talk page to discuss the key game article and to give your ideas for suitable subdivisions of the workgroup.

Anyone can work on editing and moving towards approval, so please start creating articles! It would also be helpful if some authors would look at completing articles, or editors moving more developed articles towards approval. See our list of developed articles for additional topics not listed below. Articles in this list are accompanied by a pictorial representation of the article's status; the possible depictions are as follows:

  • Level4.jpg Level 4 (external article with no changes made)
  • Level3.jpg Level 3 (stub)
  • Level2.jpg Level 2 (developing)
  • Level1.jpg Level 1 (developed)
  • Level0.jpg Level 0 (approved)

Articles in red have not been written yet.

On behalf of all the authors and editors already aboard, many thanks in advance!

—The Editors

Some of the subdivisions produce inevitable overlap. For example, Trivial Pursuit is at once a party game, a board game, and a trivia game. Other articles may belong to more than one Workgroup. Darts, for example, may be considered both a sport and a game.
