    Does anyone know how to “get” these games for later use without automatically downloading them? I want to add these games to my library of future titles to play but I don’t want to download them right now. Note, I have an Xbox one X. Thanks!

    Marooners looks fun for local multiplayer. The kids and I play Knight Squad, Speedrunners, some rainbow jump game (name escapes me), Joe Danger and a few others that support sometimes up to 8 players on one screen. Great for parties :)
