Best Sequencing Games

The order of things in games can affect how well you do. Some games lean into this interaction and task you with putting items in particular orders to get the most points.

Other games use the idea of sequencing to let you plan a series of actions that are then played out in order. Or sometimes a game requires you to do things in a certain order for them to be successful.
