A while ago, I posted a thread that asked the very same question.

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/2683448#2683448

Now I want to ask it again, and afterwards, have a poll to see which is voted the best choice!

Rules:

- One entry per person
- The entry must be something not already on my collection or wishlist
- No negativity towards other choices. If you want to comment FOR it, fine, but the polls will ultimately decide it.
- The winner gets 2 , and who knows, I might feel generous and give a few more...

I've given the original suggestions entries to start to be fair.

"Of the games that you don't already own, have on your wishlist, or have rated, I would recommend Jambo or Flaschenteufel. Jambo, my first choice, is a very enjoyable hand management game for two players and Flaschenteufel is a very clever and well themed trick-taker that is perfect for three players."

So Jambo is his suggestion.

Took me longer than I thought to suggest a game...you seem to like a lot of the same games I do and every time I thought of one, turned out that you already owned it..."

So San Marco is his suggestion

Since it looks like our "games owned" lists were separated at birth, this is my favorite of the few games you don't have that I do.


Edit: I forgot to check your wishlist - and you already had Glory to Rome on it so I changed it to this game.

I think you should celebrate this milestone getting something cool, like a special edition, for a game you already love rather than just getting another random game. Looking at your top games, maybe a copy of Funkenschlag? I don't really know the gameplay differences, but Power Grid seems to be your favorite, or one of, so it has a cool collector factor.

Another way to go would be to get some custom made pieces for one of your top games. I know there is some creative and talented people here on BGG and you could probably find someone willing to pimp your game.

Technically, this goes against your rule of not posting something you already own, sort of, so I'll delete it if you don't want it getting votes.

"not only will I give you a suggestion, I'll give you 3!
1. don't choose the flashy cup for the Grail, go simple- LCR

2. something classic- Backgammon

or

3. something kind of unique and a ton of fun- Subbuteo"

Though I don't list them, I do own 1 and 2...so it looks like your choice is Subbuteo

Mikael Ölmestig (godfeather) says:

"Looking at the list of games that you have and what you like, Phoenicia seems like a game you want to pick up. You seem to enjoy Scepter of Zavandor and this is a cousin to that game. It does have its own things that makes it special, eg. that there isn't a clear link between income and VPs, which makes it scratch a slightly different itch. While I know it haven't got that much buzz here on the geek it really is an excellent economic engine game that plays quicker than most games of this type."

So one vote for Phoenicia.

"Your ratings are remarkably similar to mine! And you already own virtually every game in my collection that I can wholeheartedly recommend (and is still in print).

But I still found a couple of possibilities;

Confucius; we've been having fun with this one; an area majority type game but with webs of obligations between players that make the games lively.

Trias; another area control type game, much simpler, but one that I find tantalizingly difficult to predict. Definitely worth having in any collection."

Confucius it is

ok, so I never came back and posted. I thought about it some and was never able to come up with a good one.

You seem to play a lot with varied groups.

I might recommend this game only because even though I don't rate it very high, I see that a lot of people really like it and it's a good filler game for larger groups of people.

Since you have a number of high ratings for abstracts, you should treat yourself to an obscure, but genius little game.

Why? Simple rules, variable starting position, fast play time and conflict from the first move make this a no-brainer. Check out the comments and ratings - you won't be disappointed . . .

It's 400 games, that's quite a milestone!

So treat yourself to something luxurious, something you normally wouldn't consider buying because you think it's too expensive.

Some old grail, or something overproduced in a small production run. Like this one. There's a new limited edition coming, this time it's called White Elephant. (More info in German here)

Although it's way too expensive ("just" 99,- euro's when you order it before the 15th of october), it's on my "take a look at it in Essen" list. Together with other luxury items from the same company as Planet Steam.

Or you should wait some more 'till your 500th game and save up to go to Essen....
