's great idea and geeklist.

Cutting down my collection to 25 games... To tell the truth, I thought it will be way more difficult. But I cut down my collection to 75 from 300+ in the last two years, so it's actually not that surprising either.

The Alpha

a.k.a. The Flagship
Small World (re)introduced me to the hobby ~5 years ago. I liked it from the first moment. Sometimes I play this as a fun party game, for the slaughter. Other times it's a strategic-tactical struggle for victory. It scales well from 2 to 5.
This was the first item in my collection. I had to have the Designer Edition. It wasn't cheap, oh no. But it's gorgeous, it is worth every last penny.

The First...

my fiancée played with me. Sadly, the last so far, but not all is lost. She liked it, and started something...
Oh, and it's a clever design, easy to teach and it's about people. The Hungarian word for board games literally means 'company games'. And this game is about your company around the table.

The. Best. Game. I. Have. Ever. Played.

Not my favorite game, but the best game I've played. Fun, chaotic yet strategic, simple, interactive and social.

The party game

I'm not into the party game genre at all. (And as you will see I'm like this with a couple of genres...) This is the ultimate party game for me. I need no other, thank you very much. It's also a great gateway game.

The gateway game

Probably the first one I would put on the table with a new group. And my favorite Carcassonne. I had the whole Carc collection (base+all expansions, promos) before buying this. After that I traded it away and kept only this.

For my fiancée...

She said if I buy a game for her, she will play it with me. This was my choice. No plays in it yet. She first wants to paint eyes and mouth on them. They will hit the table very some. I hope she will like this.

The card game

There should be an 'ultimate' there between 'the' and 'card'. Too bad, the KS campaign was so ugly. But the game is still brilliant regardless.

Another genre I'm not into too much. But Cyclades is one of my favorite games of all time. If there is a game that was designed specifically for me, this is it.

The worker-placement

I hate-hate-hate dry euros. Gather yellow to trade for red and then buy blue, it gives you 2 vp a piece. Thanks, but no thanks.

Wait, thematic euros? Not just artwork but thematic sense? Yes, please. Village is the first and maybe only wp game where I felt, that my worker are actual persons. (The Manhattan Project came close.)

The area control game

Area control? Another red light genre for me. But I do enjoy this one. Mostly because it's simple and fast. Does what it should in a reasonable time frame. I could see this as a gateway as well.

I don't like sci-fi. This game made me watch an entire sci-fi show. Twice. I even bought the Top Gun Stein.

The civ game

Abstract in many ways, yet no other game give me the 'civ' feeling more than this. I don't like bidding, loved it in this one. The patching part is surprisingly fun and works. The trade route-war part is one of the best mechanics... err... mechanisms(?) I have experienced in a game.

There should be some kind of sign here. Or a segment title. From here on, I can't really describe why these games are here. One is for sure: they are unique enough.

But now about Archipelago...

There is so much going on in this game. In a good way. I do need to play this more.

This is a fun party game. This is a take-that card game. This is a traitor game. This is a coop dungeon crawler.
I can even forgive it has player elimination. (Maybe the biggest red light for me.)

And the monsters, oh, the monsters are so many, so versatile, so fantastic.
