The day has come. Your doctor has told you that you are dying and that you don't have much time left, so you write your last will and testament. Being a passionate gamer, you add an unusual request: You want to be buried with your most beloved board game. What game will it be? What game has brought you the greatest joy and given you the fondest memories? (Replayability might be a factor worth taking into consideration too, in case you have to play the game in question forever and ever on the other side.)

I'd pick Go. Not because it's especially suitable for a grave, but because it's such a pleasure to play it; I get happy just thinking of it. I have fond memories of many board games, but for me, nothing beats the unique combination of serenity and intensity that Go offers. I expect this game to last me a lifetime, so maybe it will last me an eternity too. Besides, I think Death is quite tired of Chess by now, so maybe he'll consider playing another abstract game.

It'd be the wooden version of my game Tix. This design is still dearest to me.

Not my best game, but it will get a lot of plays in the graveyard and thematically it fits perfectly.

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

If you take this one, you won't need a coffin. You can be buried in the box.
