While my collection is smaller than many of the people on BGG, it's still too big for me. Most of the game I have don't get played often (read: at all), but I'm afraid to get rid of them because maybe I'll want to play them in the future.

So, I'm trying an experiment. I'm moving most of my games out of my public area and considering them "gone." Then in January, 2014, if I haven't played any of them, I'll get rid of them (maybe blush)

This list contains the games that I want to keep and play. I expect I'll still cycle in and out new games, but will try to avoid adding them to my trimmed collection (unless they're really, really good)

My "kid games" that I own to play with my kids are excluded from this experiment.

One of several 18XX games I'll be keeping. The reason this is #1 is because, for me, this epitomizes 18XX. It's mean, deep, and has tons of replayability without much chrome. Not to mention it's one of the only affordable 18XXs.

The Accountant's 18XX. There's a reason it's named after the opening of the NY Stock Exchange.

The Quick 18XX. Can be played in about 2 - 3 hours by people who know it.

The new 18XX. This has minors and privates and a national railroad. It runs a bit long, but this could become my favorite 18XX

The short but deep train game. This may end up alternating with Chicago Express (and even possibly Locomotive Works) which I keep in the same box.

The Civilization game. While I may prefer TtA, I get my fix for that online. In person, Antiquity is shorter (especially with more than 2) and equally deep. They are different, but I don't see myself ever asking to play TtA in person when I've got this.

The gateway auction game. Note: my "gateway" games are games I love, never get tired of, and will happily play (and often ask to play) with gamers. These are not fluffy games, but games with simple rules that belie their depth.

The worker placement game. At this point, this is one of two worker placement I really like (the other being Keyflower).
