Derk's Decree - Cutting Your Collection to 26 Games

And so, at the start of the second year of the return of the mighty Derk from the wilderness, he sent out a decree through all of BoardGameGeek: to counteract the unholy influence of the Cult of the New, each BoardGameGeek user will reduce his or her collection of games to six and a score. One shall be chosen from among the top ten in the rankings, one from the second ten in the rankings, and so on until five and a score have been gathered. For the final game, each user shall have the opportunity to choose a single game from outside of the top 250.

Fortunately, this is just a theoretical exercise. But if it weren't - which would you keep? For the first 25, please answer the polls below. For the 26th, just add it to the list. Kvetching about having to leave a favorite behind - or about an unimpressive set of ten - can be added through comments.

(Please note that polls don't always work well in geeklists; if one acts as if you have already answered, when you haven't, just click on "Questions" and make your selection - it should be registered properly.)

My collection just wouldn't be complete without the best party game (and my second-favorite game overall)! Cool idea for a geek list, BTW. Coupld of tough choices and a couple of "none of the above"s

We logged lots of hours on Second Edition over the years, and 4th Ed. Revised from FFG is a nice improvement! Lots of options, clearer rules, and future expansions! SWEEEEEET!!!

Mare Nostrum is by far one of my favorite games. I love the mechanics and the interaction between players.

Still one of my favorites when I can get people with 3-4 hours to spare. Of course, if they had 12 hours, it would be Civ/Adv. Civ. but I already chose that.

I would have seconded Cities & Knights, but I don't think that falls within the rules. This is my favorite game ranked higher than 250.

One of my favorite fillers since it plays up to 10. I'm amazed this one still works even as simple as it is. BSG in 30 minutes.

This would be my number 26. Many a childhood days were spend blowing up my brothers Doom Buggy. And it still gets to the table every so often.
