I was halfway out the door after a long day of great games when my buddy Dave Arnott lured me back with an offer to play a speed 2-player game of our shared favorite, Knizia's Africa. I've always loved this game, one of Knizia's lesser-loved gems, and playing it like that with my buddy was a great end to the night.

This is an abstract set-collection design by Reiner Knizia with an African exploration theme. Players move their explorers into the African interior, revealing randomly-placed tokens and taking actions. Points are scored by collecting sets of similar tokens.

Many of my favorite games from Knizia are among his more obscure designs.

Africa is a wonderful game, underappreciated in my view because it seems lighter than it is. It's my third favorite of all of Knizia's designs.

My fourth favorite is Neue Spiele im alten Rom (#3284 as I write this), a collection of games all of which are interesting; Imperium is my favorite, and the reason I rate the collection so highly.

Honeybears (#3367) is a delightful race game. Go Red Bear!

Res Publica (#3402) is my single favorite Knizia design. I greatly prefer the Queen edition (though the original Hexagames edition is fine), and love the single conjunction rule.

I expected Clash of the Gladiators (#3637) to get more love than it got, bringing bashing of other players (required by the game - no turtling) together with Knizia's design sense (keeping things well balanced, and keeping all players in the game to the end). One of many times I was wrong - but I still love the game.

Gelini Nightlife (unranked) makes the mechanism from Tutanchamun more fun.

Lots of other decent games, but the ones above are those that have made the cut in my collection. (Overall, I've played 115 of Knizia's designs.)

And if we're at games with spatial aspects, one might mention two (three) tile collection games as well, still very far from the Ra concept:

Jäger und Sammler (and Zombiegeddon)

Why it would fit:
Iin each turn (well, in most turns) you collect 2 tiles from the commonly contested ones. You do it in two subsequent 'epochs' (seasons). Scoring of the tiles varies: many tiles are scored for face value (1 to 3), some of them can be collected only if conditions are met (you need another tile type for them - see flood - to score, but these score more), 4 different goods are scored with a triangular scoring. Reaching camps is like a spatial equivalent of collecting suns: in the first season you do it to have good positions for tile collection in the second season; in the second season you do it for 5 points each.
Why it does not fit:
Well, it's still a spatial tile collection game with no auctions and even the layout of tiles is known from the beginning of each season.

Africa (2001)

Why it would fit:
Unlike in the ones above, you do reveal tiles one by one, so the order they come up in is not known from the beginning of the game. Also there is a variety of tiles with different rules and a dozen scoring possibilities, mostly spatial scoring for adjacency, some for moving there, some for turning them over, some for building camps next to them; also some actions allow you take some tiles, and there is even an endgame scoring - majority scoring and something resembling triangular scoring. Oh yes, and the game ends when the 11th piece of a specific tile (monument) is turned over which is very Ra-like.
Why it does not fit:
Well... To be honest, it still does not feel or play like Ra at all; it's a no-auction game with a very strong spatial aspect.

I've been on this site for 10 years now, and I'm far from sick of games, but I think I am, to some degree, sick of learning too many new games. I'm also tired of playing 4+ hr multiplayer games, but I'll still happily play really long games 2 player.
