I recently saw a recommendation for Al Menconi’s website for help when trying to discern which games to use in an open youth club at church. He reviews a lot of different games, (it is an American website so it is more focussed on games for the American market). It gives a letter and score grade for each game having examined it in five areas:

  • Violence
  • Language
  • Nudity/Sexual Content
  • Occult/Supernatural
  • Cultural/Moral/Ethical
It seems to be that anything that is a B (i.e. 80 or above) is pretty safe for use in our groups from having had a quick look. Certainly a tool I will use when we consider new games.
