1962. I have a copy, I think I played it way back in the 80s. It was this or pass out, and pass out is a silly game.

1965. There were three others in the list for this year - Go for Broke, The Business game and SpyRing. This one is definitely the one I've had most fun with though. "Have you got change for half a million people?"

1971. I still have this, though it hasn't seen play for a while. I was tempted to put 'Chainmail' in there but I only played it once, even though it influenced all things D&D that came after.

1972. I played this at a friend's house and was desperate for a copy. Unfortunately once ebay came around later in life, it wasn't quite as good as I'd remembered. Oh well.

1978. I had a bit of a love/hate relationship with this game. I don't own it, but it's been played more than one or two times at friends. A little bit silly, but a lot of fun.

1979. It was this, Dune or the Awful green things from outer space. This is still in my collection, and was a definite pointer towards the 'dump on your friends' games that we love today.

1980. This is included for number of plays and the innovative system. I have a bunch of lost worlds books, but they make this system overcomplex IMHO.

1981. I'm including this one based on number of plays and most fun had. I counted about 10 games that I still own from this year, which could mean one of two things: games got better, or I got a lot more into it.

1984. The state of the games market is odd. Trivial pursuit has altered the public's perception, resulting in a lot more visitors. The hobby games see to be stuck in a rehash/expansion phase with not much of note happening. More and more and more hex and chit. Signs from the continent that things are moving in Germany.

1986. If you'd come up to me and said "Look, here's this great game about German politics - and it's all in German!" I would have laughed in your face. It was all about Warlock of firetop mountain or Blood Bowl, Fortress America, Kings & Things or RAF. I love this game though, so in it goes.
