Haven't we all played them? At least a few, right? The old Avalon Hill games were the standard in boardgaming for many many years. This list is a tribute to the old Avalon Hill. So which old Avalon Hill (non-Hasbro) game is your favorite? And how does it rank on this list? Comments welcome!

Games were entered based on their BGG manufacturer designation. I've attempted to show the AH edition wherever possible.
