This is a bit of a cheat, but I'm a sucker for systems and have not had the good fortune to explore either the Mystique deck nor Nestortiles. The simplicity of the system is a joy.

Honorable mentions: 18 Ghosts and RED.

Am I seriously limited to one? Out of the 80 nestorgames (5 of which are game systems, each supporting numerous games!) at my house, my favorites (all  9 s) are as follows, in no particular order:

By the way, that's not my pile o' nestorgames at the left, but the similarity is strong.

Yep, I'm going to go ahead and list this expansion for the slightly convoluted, but undeniably brilliant Symbol (Symbol's brand of merge and split allows for fascinating strategies to be built upon its most unusual tactical situations.) What pushes this expansion to a  9  is specifically the hex map. It really allows this game to shine.

It's yellow and blue bits on a triangular grid with the corners missing. So what? The bits are birds, bent on unifying with birds of a feather into a single flock. This impetus forces you to think in a very fresh way about your moves and your strategy. If you have any taste for abstract strategy games, you will be unable to try it merely once, and let it rest.  9

Based on my rating and number of logged plays, it must be the classic Hex!

But in terms of more modern/original nestorgames, I second fogus's mention of the Shibumi system. Also RED, Zaic, Yavalath, Pentalath, Margo, Four, Morelli, and various others...

Questor was my first exposure to nestorgames. I thought it was such a great idea, and that thought hasn't changed after many fun plays. My only hope is that one day nestorgames will come out with a new 'fantasy' themed game or maybe a new expansion for Questor. :]

I just discovered this a little over a week ago. A friend of mine brought two Nestor Games with him to a con I attended, this and Sugar Gliders. I immediately fell in love with both games. This list is great timing because I am figuring out what games I want to make an order for and with the shipping I want to make sure I get as many in one shot as I can afford.

This game specifically was a blast because it had a great push your luck aspect to it and a bit of "take that" to it as well. Surprisingly deep strategy for such a small game.

I love the portability of these games and the production value. I cannot wait to get a few of my own.

The colorful board invites the casual gamer into the game in an accessible way, after which the simple but novel and engaging positional scoring rule can be explained. The uniqueness of the latter distinguishes it from many other movement games. A modern game for a modern age.

This one went from curiosity to battle arena for my regular wargame opponent and me. The game reveals itself only after many plays and is our go-to game after long afternoons of military ops. You must hold two reverse strategies in mind at the same time. Love this game!

There are a lot of great games in nestorgames assortment, so it is hard for me to pick a favorite.

Besides my own games, I most frequently play Hippos & Crocodiles, as I works well with people that are not that much into abstracts too.
