Collections Fredthebear Wants to Look At Twice
Compiled by fredthebear

These are links to other collections that caught Fredthebear's eye. (By saving the link, FTB does not need to save the collection amongst his own, which definitely needs thinned out!)

The first or second, and the last or next-to-last game from each collection has been included in here for an interesting hodgepodge of games.

The links to the collections are:
