Honorable Mentions:

Dice Theme Park (run theme park, dice are customers, values reduce as they move)

Genotype (worker placement, dice drafting)

Moonshine Empire (redneck pickup and deliver)

Aqua Garden (stock aquarium tanks; rondel, set collection, drafting)

Shogun No Katana (craft swords, worker placement - different workers to collect resources, etc)

Caper: Europe - Same as Caper?

Dinosaur World - Card drafting, worker placement and driving a jeep around to admire your hard work...don’t let too many people get eaten

Galenus - Worker placement game where you decide which worker to resolve during the action phase. Blind bidding to compete in medical contests.

My Father’s Work - Worker placement game where players are competing mad scientists trying to complete their father’s masterwork.

Namiji (Tokaido universe) - Like Tokaido but a bit deeper with some different mechanisms but still has the same chill vibe

Merchants Cove - Rondel and commodity speculation

Museum: Pictura - More streamlined version of the original game. There is more intermittent scoring chances in this one as opposed to the original version.
