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?

Agricola was the one member of my top 10 to get omitted, so it gets the Geeklist recognition as my Honorable Mention.

I thought a wargamer should report.

My Anabasis though the alphabet of games. Even though this is one I don't own - it is my choice for X.

For some letters it was really tough - lots of good choices.

# 1830: Railways & Robber Barons Ah it doesn't get any better than to trash some stock unless it is to strip a company and dump it on an unsuspecting shareholder.
A Afrika (second edition) SCS is a fun system and this is one of my favorites. Acquire and Ardennes gave it a good run
B Big City I'm a sucker for the bits - but there was a competition from B-17: Queen of the Skies Barren Victory and Battle Above the Clouds
C Can't Stop Non-gamers crack.
D Domaine or should the spice flow in Dune
E Eurorails Europe appeals more than the US in Empire Builder
F Friedrich A great 3 on 1 game.
G Giganten Love the bits - game isn't to shabby either
H Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage Still one of my favorite CDG's
I Imperial Something about being part of an international banking cartel
J Journey to the Center of the Earth A bit weak but true to the book
K Kingsburg A Euro with dice? Bring it on.
L Liberté Vive la France. The faction blocks are appropriately Blue, White and Red
M Manoeuvre A filler wargame? However lots of good M Medieval Merchant The Mighty Endeavor Die Macher
N Napoleon's Triumph What is N without Napoleon
O On to Richmond! Can Little Mac make it? Richmond is a hard road to travel
P Paths of Glory I wish I could win at this. Tried Pursuit of Glory guess what still can't win.
Q Mississippi Queen Does this count - wow not interested in Qs
R RAF When I'm alone. However with a bunch of knife wielding friends The Republic of Rome
S Struggle of Empires Keep your friends close, your enemies closer. Lots of other S games. Silverton Santa Fe Rails Stonewall Jackson's Way Catan
T Thunder at the Crossroads (first edition) Still my favorite Gettysburg game. I like to play the 1st day.
U Union Pacific Still my favorite rail game
V Vegas Showdown Lots of good words in V - just not a lot of games
W Wilderness War Can the French and Indian War be interesting - yes it can.
X Xenophon: 10,000 Against Persia Back to where I started - "The Sea, The Sea"
Y Yom Kippur Will the Israelis hold back the Egyptians?
Z Zero! Down in Flames in the Pacific

94. Board Game: ABC Game [Average Rating:3.26 Unranked]

I decided to only use games I OWN (and have already logged into BGG, so all the ones I'm lagging on are not included) for ease of looking them up (yes, LAZY, I know) and only games that I have PLAYED (so all those games I aspire to play in my lifetime that I have yet to enjoy don't count).

Here we go:

# 7 Wonders
A Agricola
B Battlelore+Exp
C Caylus
D Descent
E Endeavor
F Fresco
G El Grande (according to BGG its a "G" game ninja)
H Hansa Teutonica
I Imperial
J Java
K Kingsburg+Exp
L Last Night on Earth+Exp
M Mission: Red Planet
N Neuroshima Hex+Exp
O On the Underground
P Power Grid
Q Quarto!
R Railroad Tycoon/Railways of the World
S Stone Age
T Through the Ages
U Ubongo
V Vampire: The Eternal Struggle (really Jyhad)
W Wiz-War (probably only because I haven't played War of the Ring)
X Don't Have One... shake
Y YINISH
Z Zombie State

Hardest letters for me, giving up the following for those above:
A/B - Age of Industry/Brass
P - Princes of Florence
R - Race for the Galaxy
S - Small World, Star Craft+Exp, Space Hulk
T - Tinner's Trail, Tigris and Euphrates

Now if we can use a sharpie to add a silent letter to some of our games, my collection would be complete! lol... Example: XRace for the Galaxy.

# - 2038: Tycoons of the Asteroid Belt
A - Aliens (losing Acquire - ouch)
B - BattleTech (can't give it up - but goodbye to Bausack and Battles of Westeros)
C - Caylus
D - Dominion
E - El Capitán
F - Family Business
G - Groo: The Game
H - Hey, That's My Fish!
I - Industrial Waste (losing Imperial hurts)
J - Jambo
K - Khronos
L - Liar's Dice
M - Modern Art (over Manhattan AND Metropolys)
N - Naval War
O - Opera
P - Power Grid
Q - Quebec 1759
R - Railways of the World
S - Small World
T - Ticket to Ride
U - Union Pacific
V - Vinhos
W - Wealth of Nations
X - I'm cheating and using this as a wildcard so I can keep Carcassonne
Y - Ys
Z - Zooloretto

Granted, a lot of my base choices are expandable - for example, my Ticket To Ride box also has Europe, Nordic Countries, and Alvin and Dexter in it - but if some malicious force is going to come along and demand that I arbitrarily reduce my collection, damn right I'm going to game it.

E - Einfach Genial - Reiseedition
F - Forbidden Island
G - Glory to Rome
H - History of the World

N - Nexus Ops

P - Power Grid
Q - Quandary
R - Race for the Galaxy
S - Steam
T - Through the Desert - Durch die Wuste edition
U - Unhappy King Charles!
V - Venture
W - We the People
X - X-Machina - Talking about trivial reasons for adding games to the collection, I actually picked this up to have the alphabet covered. Who'd a thunk it'd come in useful?
Y - YINSH
Z - Zero!
& - & Cetera - w/Roads & Boats, of course (Ok, I'm cheating and allowing myself a punctuation mark- sue me!)


At least three of my Top 10 list didn't make the Alphabet, due to repeated letters and no clever way to work them in. I pulled my other strong contenders and found that while the top choices were often easy, there were about 40 true contenders ignored.

A fun exercise!

Cripes this was hard. My top four games start with C or D. Some of the letters were painful to choose, and some stick out oddly compared to others on the list. Bolded ones are ones I actually own. OK. Here goes (drumroll):

#: 2 de Mayo
A: Arena: Roma II
B: Bhazum - the first hard one. BSG, and Biblios got lopped.
C: Claustrophobia - Goodbye, Catacombscry (and Chess. Sigh...)
D: Dominion (and expansions) - ARGH! Dune. That's like cutting off my left arm to save my right arm. Well, that might be a slight exageration. Let's cut off... hmm... say, the left pinky to save the right pinky, but no anasthesia. and I'm lefthanded. What? that would hurt!
E: Earth Reborn - because I am putting so much time into the painting.
F: Fairy Tale
G: Glory to Rome
H: Hive
I: Ingenious
J: Jericho
K: König von Siam
L: Lifeboat
M: Mr. Jack
N: Nightfall

O: Omen: A Reign of War - this one I don't even have, yet. I am just going on bloodthirsty anticipation.
P: Pandemic (with the expansion, of course)
Q: Qwitch
R: The Resistance
S: Stone Age - Small World and Space Alert could both just as easily have gone here.
T: Thunderstone: Dragonspire with expansions
U: Utopian Rummy - the only "U" I have to choose from, but great game still.
V: [reserved for when I am more worldly in boardgames]
W: Witch's Brew - I've only got the one game played, but I sure did love it.
X: [reserved for when I am more worldly in boardgames]
Y: [reserved for when I am more worldly in boardgames]
Z: Zombie in my Pocket - Duh.

Adding this game since:

A-Until I started preparing this list I had forgotten that I owned it and had not added it to my collection.
B-It would be hard to imaginiff this were to happen! gulp

Limiting myself to games I own/have owned.

A - The Adventurers: The Temple of Chac - Easy
B - Bohnanza - Easy
C - Carcassonne - Difficult with Cribbage and Chess but I will assume others will have these!
D - Dixit - Easy
E - Eat Poop You Cat - Don't have any "E" games so I'll have to use the published version of this.
F - Forbidden Island - Easy
G - Guillotine - Easy
H - Hearts- This covers a lot of ground!
J - Jenga- The only choice.
K - Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot - of course I will have to include ALL the expansions including Journey to Jupiter OR I could also cheat and put this in place of Jenga.
L - Loot
M - Monty Python Fluxx Over Martian Fluxx and Munchkin
N - Ninja Versus Ninja
O - Othello
P - Pitch would be covered by Hearts above so I will add one that I have on my wishlist that I think I am very likely to get is Pastiche
Q - No Q
R - Risk
S - Survive: Escape from Atlantis! - Most difficult choice!!!
T - Tales of the Arabian Nights
U - UNO - I need to get an alternate.
V - No V
W - Wits & Wagers
X - Xactika - Forgot I even owned this
Y - No Y
Z - Zombie in my Pocket

And for a number - 9 Men's Morris to replaced by something better.

This was tough for 2 reasons. Either I had two few options or too many for each letter. I have kept 2 spots right now for a standard deck of cards. That would be the hardest to get rid of.
