I thought it would be fun to reflect and determine on my top 50 games.

I did not realize how difficult this would be because many games work best in a particular setting or with a specific group, and it is hard to compare games from different genres. Sometimes, I like games because of how well they work with my family while other games, I enjoy because of the challenge.

Plus, sometimes my top games are the ones I currently enjoy. So here it goes!

This is a beautiful game that works so well with my family. My oldest son loved the game; he could deconstruct the strategy to beat mommy and daddy.

This is a great co-op game where players play heroes to defeat villains while saving by-standers. The art is great and the game includes some of my favorite heroes.

I've played once so far. I love the game. I don't believe I understand all the complexities in the game just yet but like a Feld game, it has multiple strategies to choose from. No game is alike and it is always challenging but the playing time is doable in a weekday evening.

I love the Runebound world! Runebound was one of my first complex board game. This edition is my favorite even though it has been a long time since we have played. When we want a day of adventuring, one of the games in the Runebound series is what we play.

Love this fun little game about rebuilding London after the great fire of 1666. It is extremely complex and the game forces player to build more the physical city because the community is needed as well.

Looking at my list, it looks like I am a Martin Wallace fan as well

We just picked up this game and played once but I think it is going to be a favorite. While it is cooperative, players are still trying to score their own animals to win. I like the competitive cooperative element of the game.
