How do we play that again?

Halfway through the year and the question of the hour during math centers is "How do we play that again?" Not that I mind answering the same question 100 times a day. After all I'm a first grade teacher. I'm used to it. But as we have added more and more games the question comes up more and more. Even though I take away the games that have become too easy, with 10-12 options I get that question a lot. I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner, but I took a picture of each game while it's being played and I now hang up the picture with the title of the game for students to see. Not only has it stopped the dreaded question, but students are looking up on the wall and choosing games they forgot about or hadn't played in a while. Such a simple yet wonderful solution.
