Fire has struck your collection yet again...

See these geeklist for the two other challenges:
Top 50 Challenge: Fire has struck...rebuild your game collection!
Top 50 challenge #2. Fire has struck AGAIN! The BGG Insurance company has a new plan.

This time that annoying BGG Game Insurance Company has changed there policy to this:

We will replace any game you owned before the fire, however you may only pick one game from each original production year.

Go to My Geek, then Stats, then Owned Games by Year and choose choose one game for each calendar year. Go as far as you want. I thought about limiting to birth year, or the first year that you don't have, or even the first year with only one game. But why put a limit on the fun.

Choose the game that comes from the biggest list as you post.

To keep this "about the games", I will not consider value of game, rarity, how it fits with the collection, which edition it is. Simply my favorite from each list.

2014 - Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game
2013 - Cuba Libre
2012 - Pax Porfiriana
2011 - Lancaster
2010 - Dominant Species
2009 - Jaipur

2006 - Qwirkle

2003 - Alhambra
2000 - Trendy
1997 - Tigris & Euphrates
1991 - Tichu

I'll stop there and not get into classic abstracts and card games.

A few tough years, some very sraightforward ones....and I'd have a lot more space.

2014 - Ivor the Engine
2013 - My Little Pony: Collectible Card Game. It was that or Elevenses & the ponies have just been more fun
2012 - Snowdonia
2011 - Kingdom Builder
2010 - Mousquetaires du Roy. Not got around to playing it yet so it gets the nod.
2009 - Maori. Fends off Dominion: Intrigue, Vasco da Gama & Havana but I'd probably end up with all four again eventually
2008 - Stone Age. Dominion, Royal Palace & Lost Cities: TBG would be sadly missed.
2007 - Notre Dame. We've just given the people we normally play Apples to Apples with their own copy, so I wouldn't have to worry about having a copy myself.
2006 - The Christmas Game. It's a tradition
2005 - Animal Upon Animal
2004 - Ticket to Ride
2003 - Hey, That's My Fish!. If I could swap this for a second game from some of the years, I would.
2002 - Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers
2001 - The Lord of the Rings Trading Card Game
2000 - Citadels

A good stopping point as there's little before then that I'd worry too much about replacing.

I can't believe my insurance policy! They'll only pay me for 20 games off my collection, so I can't even replace to every year!

1) 2015 - Harbour - Only have two choices, and the other's an expansion - One Night Ultimate Werewolf Daybreak
2) 2014 - Pandemic: The Cure - Tough choice over a lot of great games, but it's Pandemic streamlined, and press your luck dicerolling just fits so well.
3) 2013 - Concept - Because party games.
4) 2012 - Keyflower - Wins out over two other 2012-released Worker Placements (Lords of Waterdeep and Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar), and beats one of my favorite games (Android: Netrunner) because I'm sure all its expansions would not be covered under my policy.
5) 2011 - The Castles of Burgundy - Would have been very hard pressed for anything to beat out my #1 game.
6) 2010 - 7 Wonders - Another easy choice, and great for larger group bang for the buck.
7) 2009 - Hansa Teutonica - A favorite that doesn't get enough play. Maybe if nearly everything else were destroyed...
8) 2008 - Formula D - Not enough dice in my list.
9) 2007 - Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game - It's a dumb Ameritrashy game in the extreme; it's also one of the first games I bought when dipping my toe into the hobby.
10) 2006 - Ticket to Ride: Märklin - My personal favorite TTR.
11) 2005 - Twilight Struggle - Holy crap, it's 10 years old?!
12) 2004 - Power Grid - My wife's favorite bone-dry-themed Euro (mine's the aforementioned Hansa Teutonica).
13) 2003 - Hey, That's My Fish! - Great with kids, and deceptively cruel with adults.
14) 2001 - Hive - If this was the only game I owned, I'd still suck at it after years of daily plays, and I love that about it.
15) 2000 - Carcassonne - Still one of the best gateways.
16) 1995 - Catan - I readily admit I still have fun with Catan. I have more fun with other games, yes, but it doesn't make Catan bad.
17) 1989 - Taboo - Again, because party games. Played it with a larger group a few months ago, and it holds up surprisingly well.
18) 1986 - Labyrinth - Excellent kids' game, still fun today.
19) 1948 - Scrabble - It's a word game, but it's also secretly hand management and the best words will do you no good without careful tile placement to take advantage of bonus squares.
20) 1630 - Cribbage - But I'm making them pay for a way nicer track than I currently have!

2009 - Macao (Hansa Teutonica! cry)
2010 - Hanabi (over Luna & Troyes)
2011 - Tragedy Looper
2012 - Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island (the longest and toughest list!)
2013 - Nations (narrowly over Bora Bora and Russian Railroads)
2014 - Fresco: Big Box (surprisingly easy, since I haven't gotten the big Essen releases that we've enjoyed yet)

2012 was the toughest year, having to give up both Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar and The Resistance: Avalon (both 9s for me!) as well as my favorite puzzle game Mutant Meeples. With no other traditional co-ops making the cut though, I had to keep Robinson.

Singletons are marked with an asterisk.

-3000: Backgammon*
1964: Acquire*
1974: Crude: The Oil Game*
1977: Cosmic Encounter*
1979: Magic Realm*
1980: Intruder*
1983: Up Front (very competitive; had to dump Ambush, Scotland Yard, and Wiz-War)
1986: Die Macher
1987: Raid on St. Nazaire
1990: Carrier
1991: Silverton (enough of my friends have Tichu already)
1992: The Classic Dungeon*
1993: Last Frontier: The Vesuvius Incident*
1994: Roborally*
1995: Catan*
1999: Starfarers of Catan
2001: Risk 2210 AD
2002: Puerto Rico
2003: Vanished Planet
2004: Power Grid
2005: Twilight Struggle
2006: Through the Ages
2007: Galaxy Trucker
2008: Battlestar Galactica
2009: Dungeon Lords
2010: Hornet Leader: Carrier Air Operations
2011: Mage Knight Board Game (tough, but an auto-pick)
2012: Robinson Crusoe
2013: Caverna (might have picked Nations, but I already have TtA above)
2014: Roll for the Galaxy* (I'm not counting expansions)
2015: XCOM: The Board Game*

Interesting that I have so many great games from my birth year. (1983) Also interesting is the paucity of games from the late 90s. 2011 and 2013 were probably the hardest picks.
