A few months ago, I couldn't stop playing High Stakes. It's such a fun, press-your-luck style game.

I need to boot up Pico-8 soon and try some of those that Cody mentioned.

Ooh that’s two votes now for High Stakes, making it the best so far!

I did have pico8 on my retro flag gpi case - but had to reinstall RetroPie, so no longer have it on there. I might make a dedicated SD card for it
