As the list states, if for some reason, the US government invoked a quota on game ownership upon penalty of death, these games would be the ones that made the cut.

Settler's of Catan - Its easy to introduce to people. There is luck involved, but there is also a tremendous amount of strategy and tactics. I have also played it enough to know that it will weather the tests of time.

Carcassonne - Another high quality game, that can easily be played by 2 or 5 players. There are also enough variants that I should be happy with it for a long long time.

Tigris & Euphrates - A solid game, that comes with a ton of pieces. I would be sad if it and Puerto Rico weren't in my list of games to keep, because I am really trying to figure out how to hack these two games into one game.

Puerto Rico - This is another great game. Lots of choices, demonstrates the concept of "Chaos". Also it is very well balanced and easily expandable, by the addition of new components.

Boggle - Everyone needs to expand their vocabulary, and this game will help you do it. Where else can you learn that "Chalaco" is not a word. This game is also one that can be played with two or more people, and realistically solo wouldn't be that bad either. The game is also different enough from the above games, that it would provide a nice break from the above.

This one wouldn't make the list but...
El Grande - I really like this game, but can't seem to get others to play it. So if I only had 5 games, I could at least get them to play 1 in 5 times .
