Some games, I believe will live on forever.
There will always be a new expansion to that game or a new associated spin-off.

So thumb your favorite game family and you may also win geek gold! Remember, you are selecting your favorite game family and not your favorite game!
To enter this contest, you must just simply thumb this list.

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED

PRIZES:
I will give away the following prizes:
First prize: 5 To one individual selected at random who thumbs this list.
Second prize: 3 To one individual selected at random who thumbs this list.
Third prize: 2 To one individual selected at random who thumbs this list.

Additional Door prizes: 1 per door prize.
I will give door prizes to as many individuals as I can, based on what ever tips I get for this list. Door prizes will also be selected at random.

I will not keep any for myself. All tips that I receive will given away as prizes. Obviously, I cannot control tips given to other users who add items to this list.

The contest will end on May 31st, 2010, 11:59 PM, Eastern Time.

There are more than 360 game families listed in BGG!

Please add your favorite game family. I have added my favorite game family, Carcassonne, as a starter. You may present your favorite game family in any manner you choose. You may want to list: the base game(s), expansions, spin-offs, alternative printings, fan-based expansions, express versions, pictures, videos, diagrams, or whatever you thinks best represents your favorite game family!

After a few days, I will periodically rearrange the list in order of the most thumbs! Arrangement of the list is entirely my decision.

My former contest Your Favorite Color - Win Geek Gold is now closed.

27. Board Game: Up Front [Average Rating:7.85 Overall Rank:186]

Up Front was put out by Avalon Hill (AH) as a card version of Squad leader. (Side note - this is not much different from games today that have a board and card/dice version, e.g. Ra, (Roll) through the Ages, Puerto Rico/San Juan, Catan, and etc. Euros are nothing new!)

The AH expansions are:

+ Banzai
+ Desert War

The game has been expanded by other entities as well. See Up Front Series for other listings.

The AH magazine The General also has many articles that explain and expand on the game. There is a do-your-own fight that really gives control of the squads and equipment to the players.

The rules are sucky, but the game is so good as to transcend the rules in my humble opinion. Sure do wish I could find face-to-face opponents.

Everything between now and the next game is just killing time. Matchstickman. True, so very true.
mbmbmbmbmb
The Mask Trilogy as offered from designers Wolfgang Kramer and Michael Kiesling is a fantastic set of games.

People are more familiar with Tikal due to its SDJ award, but Mexica and Java are also very wonderful games. Java being the most complex of the three. Not only are these games challenging but they are beautiful games also.

Although I like many of the other families of games listed on this post, this one is my favorite.

and it's sister and expansions
Early American Chrononauts
Chrononauts: The Gore Years
Chrononauts: Lost Identities

A small family of games, but one dear to my heart. Actually, I have a love/love-not-so-much relationship with this game... I like the time patching stuff, and the solo game, but the other win paths in the standard game just feel extraneous to me.
