An unfortunate circumstance has occurred that will allow you to only keep 3 games from your current collection. Which games do you choose to keep? Are you going with epic titles, family friendly games, or maybe strong solo-play?

Now, here is the sinister sub-plot; you can't keep a game that has already been listed in this Geeklist.

Decision, decisions...

I'm skipping over three entries in my top 10 list to get to this one - which makes me rethink the order of my top 10 list rather than question my choice of this game as third one I'll keep, really. So, easy choice #3, in fact. Hey, that was quick and painless.

I'm always looking to simplify my life, so I've pondered this question a number of times. It's never gonna happen; I'm simply not the minimalist I'd like myself to be. But I think I could probably boil my collection down to 25 or so. I mean... hypothetically.

Anyway, the three:

Crokinole is an easy choice. On the one hand, it's fast and loose, conducive of laughs and table-talk. On the other hand, it's totally skill-based, and can become tense and competitive. Nothing else like it.

This is my #2 pick.

I'm in the middle of making the 4 print and play factions by laminating the
printed paper sheets and then gluing these laminated hexes onto double sided colored cardboard that I bought from Hobby Lobby for 2.50 per large sheet.

I'm crazy about the game. I have 8 factions already and they are printing more. This is not my wife's choice of theme and she loves the game as well. This one would see a lot of play.

I doubt Nexus Ops has a chance at all at ranking higher than this game in either one of our lists.

PS: My wife says she will play print and play factions against each other but not against the regular factions as they don't look right together. I have to agree on this. Still, I'm going to make the rest of the print and play factions.

For some reason this game is one I really enjoy - it's not the tightest set of mechanics around - but it is hugely thematic. I really enjoy playing this - it's a rollicking lot of chaotic fun - sure it's not the best game I own - but it's a blast and it tells a story.

My wife and I both enjoy playing this. It's a lot of fun building up your little farm.

The only reason I picked this over The Rivals for Catan is because this has the potential to be played with more players.

Nonetheless - for my wife and I this game is certainly a solid choice - one of our most played and enjoyed games.

How can I overlook a game that I have played more than 200 times and still enjoy. This could have been many games - but ultimately Fairy Tale is a little light card game that hits a sweet spot in terms of speed, fun, and thought - a great game.
