If Leonardo Bonacci, aka Fibonacci, was widely considered to be the most talented mathematician of the Middle Ages, he would definitely be a board game player, would he not?

He discovered that beautiful sequence that approximates the Golden Ratio and which finds itself all over nature.

So it seems evident that Fibonacci would have a collection of games, the popularity of which would follow a certain sequence of ranks:

[0, 1,] 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584, 4181, 6765, 10946, 17711, 28657, 46368, 75205…

It wouldn't be a very large collection, given the total size of the BGG database, but it would be an active collection, except perhaps right at the top.

Fibonacci likes to keep games that rank the same as his famous sequence, and so as ranks shift with popularity, he buys and sells what he needs to in order to keep his collection in order. It's a good thing Twilight Struggle has such staying power. It keeps him grounded.

Of course, he's only human, so he doesn't shift his collection on a daily basis. Rather, he only does it from time to time. So as of April 10, 2015, here is Fibonacci's collection.

Given the size of the BGG database, it's a useful way for Fibonacci to keep his collection manageably small (only 24 games!). That said, near the bottom, there's no accounting for taste, even if the ranks of his board games fit the Golden Ratio.

How many of these games do you own?
Have you played the ones at the bottom?

Misplaced this into the list after I (too quickly) read '24' as '34.'

Ignore this entry. Fibonacci does not currently own this game!
