If your collection could only exist of 26 games, one for each letter in the alphabet, what would your collection be?
Okay, those in desperate need of a 27th game can add one more that starts with a number.

So, what is your games alphabet?

This looked like a fun gimmick, so I decided to give it a whirl. Unlike many here, X was a no-brainer for me. Instead I struggled in the middle--definitely didn't expect I,J,K to trip me up. Went with two GeekBuddy recommendations and a longtime wishlist game.

Had to leave two of my top-10 off the list, sadly (Nexus Ops and Hive).

* = a game I don't own and haven't played

Hello!
mbmbmbmbmb
I made the list using my own collection. Many good games had to go so I’m happy I’m not going to do this.

Where there were hard choices, I choose the game I most likely would play with my family again. So Acqure won owner Agricola and Pitchcar over Puerto Rico even if I find both Agricola and Puerto Rico “better” games.

Acquire.
Blokus.
Chess.
Dvonn
Formula de
Go
Hero Clix
Icehouse
J: Don’t own a game starting with J
Khet the Laser game
Lost Worlds
Magic the gathering
Navia Dratp
Othello
Pitchcar
Quoridor
Rasende Roboter
Settlers of Catan
Ticket to ride: Europe
Ubongo Extreme
Volcano
Warhammer fantasy Battle
XiangQi

This will be a tough list to put together. Many great games with the same letters.

Air Baron My #1 game
Biblios although mine is a Scripts and Scribes (but I'm counting this as a B
Cuba - rough choice between this and CM08.
Detroit-Cleveland Grand Prix - gets the call over Daytona for having two tracks
Endeavor - not fair having to choose between this, Egizia and El Capitan
Founding Fathers - pretty easy choice
Gangsters - pretty easy choice
Havana - because my wife likes it and I haven't tried Hansa Tuetonica yet.
I'm the Boss! - not a lot of I competition
Java - my only J
Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot - my only K -- can I trade for another C or E?
Lords of Baseball - LeMans is the sentimental choice since I grew up playing it with my dad -- but my dad and I invented this one so it's the easy choice.
March Madness - another favorite of the wife and mine
Notre Dame - easy N pick
Ostia - between two O's, this wins
Power Grid - or Pillars of the Earth? ugh, I get to lose one of these but keep Killer Bunnies? yuk
Roads & Boats - not a lot of competition
Stone Age - goodbye San Juan and Settlers.
Tikal - tough call over TC Tennis
Union Pacific - only U, but a great U
Vegas Showdown - viking is a good game, but not as good as VSWrasslin' - fun game Derek may like when he gets olderYahtzee - I don't technically own it (or any other Y game), but I own dice and that's all you really need.
Zombies!!! - only Z game.

Quickly looking through my collection listing I'd keep the following:

A - Alhambra
B - Blue Moon (If I could also keep the expansions... If not, maybe Bang! The Bullet)
C - Crossin' Colors (It was designed by a friend and is very rare... I'd not feel right if I did not keep it. Commands & Colors: Ancients would be kept otherwise.)
D - Day & Night (Girlfriend's gift for Valentine's Day so... Domaine as alternative)
E - En Garde
F - Full Metal Planete (You don't leave a Grail behind... Especially when it is a really good game.)
G - Glory to Rome (Go is the best game in existence but it can be hand made...)
H - Hive
I - Ingenious
J - Jäger und Sammler
K - Klunker (Don't have many games starting with K and had to leave Bohnanza behind on the B)
L - Le Havre
M - Memoir '44 (Unless C&C:A had been kept before. In that case, Maria)
N - Netrunner
O - Odin's Ravens
P - Power Grid
Q - Quo Vadis?
R - Ra
S - Steam
T - Tigris & Euphrates
U - Um Reifenbreite (Only U on the list...)
V - Vasco da Gama (If I could cheat I'd put Volcano here as that means lots of games using Icehouse pieces...)
W - Wits & Wagers (At least one party game...)
X - Xe Queo! (Again, single one...)
Y - ... Note to self: Buy a game starting with Y.
Z - Zombie in my Pocket

The following were really tough:
A the obvious Agricola fell foul of my current love of Arimaa.
B could alternatively have been any of Boggle, Beep!Beep! & Bao which are great favourites of the fiance and family.
C was bloody impossible, most of my favourites seem to begin with a C! Today CitOW won out over Caylus, Carson city, Claustrophobia, Crokinole & Container. That was truly painful.
D Dominion is simply mega addictive for me and beats out two of my very favourites Deduce or Die & DVONN, partly because I can get it played more easily.
S another really tough one, I needed some Train game-age in the collection so Santiago, Santorini, Shogi & Space Alert fell by the wayside.

All games I own. Yes, X marks the spot is a real reach, but it was the only 'game' I could think of that I've ever played that starts with x. It pained me to put Ticket to Ride above Twilight Struggle as my T selection. Although Twilight Struggle is one of my favorite games ever, it also holds the dubious honor of being on my wife's "least favorite games" list, so TtR got the nod. This is also probably the only post where I will list Qwitch and Uno being in my 'must have' games.

Wow, this was PAINFUL! No artficial rules for me, this is tough enough.

# - 7 Wonders (not too difficult)
A - Arkham Horror (the pain begins -- no Agricola, no Amun-Re?)
B - Bohnanza
C - Circus Maximus (won out over Caylus and the higher rated -- by me -- Code 777 for purely sentimental reasons)
D - Diamant
E - Endeavor
F - Fearsome Floors (odd choice, but I needed something odd rather than a more "normal" game like Fresco)
G - Ghost Stories (Don't even own it, but "G"s don't seem to rock my world)
H - Hansa Teutonica (see "G")
I - Imperial (THAT one's easy)
J - Junta
K - Kingsburg (over sentimental favorites like Kremlin or Kings & Things*)
L - Lost Cities
M - Die Macher (I'll miss Merchants & Marauders)
N - No Thanks!
O - "Oh My God! There's an Axe in My Head!"
P - Poker (or Princes of Florence if Poker doesn't count)
Q - The Quantumgame
R - Ra (tough choices)
S - Sticheln (tougher choices)
T - Twilight Struggle (really tough, except I couldn't let TS go)
U - Up Front (had no real U's, and my few wargames are gone, and this one looks like a decent choice)
V - Vikings
W - Wits & Wagers (I don't think there's a W I've played; this is the most promising one)
X - X-Machina
Y - Yspahan? (no clue on this one)
Z - Zombie in My Pocket
