This past summer, I launched a series of GeekLists looking back at The Avalon Hill Game Company, in honor of both Avalon Hill's 50th year and marking 10 years since the original company's demise.

One thing I didn't get to do, however, was to catalog my Avalon Hill game collection. Over the past couple of months, I've done just that. Sadly, a couple of titles have come up missing. But here are the ones I still do have, from both the old Avalon Hill and Hasbro's AH, as well as AH-related products from MMP.

Hope you enjoy this stroll down memory lane.

This list is ever-changing and growing. Keep checking back to see what I've added.

Like its predecesor, this game covers the entire campaign in France, 1944. But the smaller countermix and simpler rules makes for a less intimidating game for those unfamiliar with wargaming.

I never understood why this game is called D-Day when it covers the entire campaign in the West to the Rhine.

I finally acquired this expansion to pair up with my copy of Air Force.

Like Air Force, this set is unpunched.

The second Up Front expansion. The Italians don't win often, but they're a bunch of fun to play with 2 machine guns in a patrol squad.

I finally bit the bullet and purchased one of my most-desired games. I'd like it even more if I could ever get to play it; it seems intriguing, a precursor to C&O/B&O.

Avalon Hill's closing caught me off guard, as I was under-employed at the time. I picked this up 6 months after they went belly-up, paying a premium for it.

One of several fantasy wargames published in the early-mid 80's, in response to the AD&D phenomenom.

(Yes, I know this particular game is based on the Runequest world.)

I wasn't much of a Napoleonics fan back in the day, so I passed up on this one until it was too late. I just made ammends for the mistakes of my past, courtesy of a Craigslist purchase.

Now, after I've trayed the counters, how do I keep everything in the box?
