My "Ring Collection"
- Roland Alkemper(Trollkin)Germany
"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,Recommend
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."
—J.R.R. Tolkien's epigraph to The Lord of The Rings
This well-known poem gave me the idea of to construct a "Ring Collection" based on the premises of the Rings of Power in an attempt to carve out my minimal collection of essential games which would still feel well-rounded to me.
The following rules define a Ring Collection:
1. The collection consists of exactly 20 games (9 Mortal Men, 7 Dwarf-lords, 3 Elven-kings and 1 Dark Lord)
2. "Mortal Men" are the regulars, i. e. any game with a playing time of more than 30 minutes.
3. "Dwarf-lords" are the
fillersshorts, i. e. preferably small games with a playing time of up to 45 minutes.
4. "Elven-kings" are wildcards with no further restrictions.
5. "Dark Lord" is the one game to rule them all, the one you could never do without, your precious.
6. The games in the Ring Collection should form a "well-rounded" collection, which is up to the composer to define, but should include that you'd be content with playing only these 20 games from now on.
What would your Ring Collection look like? Feel free to add and comment.
