this is a continuation of my previous Geeklist, which can be found here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...

I thought it was time to move on to another list because the only games on the first list that I haven't played are "Princes of the Renaissance" and "Age of Steam", but I will probably be removing them from my previous list because of their length. So Im starting this list at #19 to make up for those 2. Also, I have not played Maharaja because I don't know anyone that has it. So I won't get a chance to play it until I buy it myself.

in addition to the types of games that I removed from my original list, I have also removed the following types of games from this list:

2-player only (just because I think they deserve a separate list)
Games that are played with regular playing cards
Racing games
oop Games with <500 votes and
in print games with <200 votes (because they probably aren't very accessible)

I wasnt very impressed with this one. I guess I like my train games and stock market games separate.

Only played once. I thought it was pretty good for a game that had an abstract feel.

I haven't played this one either, but it would have to be significantly better than the original for me to like it. I think I will end up removing all "subsequent games in a game series" from this list so that all the Carcassonnes will be deleted (except for the first one), but I was worried that a series of games that I might like would be cut out in the process, but I couldnt think of any.

This is short and even though I hate area control games, this one is tolerable because there is a limit to how many pieces can be in each territory.

I learned this one recently and I think it is really good, but I still think it doesnt belong on this list because it comes so close to being a game that could be played with regular playing cards. The only problem is that I couldn't figure out a category to lump it into without removing all card games (Which I'm not going to do). I could remove all "trick taking card games" but I think that would be too vague.

This may end up getting removed from this list for being too long. I am aware that it is "possible" to play this game in less than 3 hours, but I am skeptical whether that would be the optimal Robo Rally experience.

update: this is a fun game. and I agree, the timer idea is good.

I lumped these two together because they are so similar and have such similar rankings. If I play one and dont like it, I probably wont play the other one anyway.

Update: I played Domaine and I thought it was ok, but I'm leaning towards "pretty good". I'll problably play it again.

this looks like it could be a little too abstract for me, but not so abstract that it would be considered an "abstract game"... I mean no true abstract game uses action cards.

update: yes it is too abstract for me. I dont really like any of these action point games.

This one was actually pretty good for a territory influence game (which I dont really like). My complaint about this one is that it was too long for such a light game.

Honorable Mention:
Sefarers of Catan (between #22 & #23)
Even though I am not including expansions on this list, I tried to find a way to justify adding the Settlers expansions becuse I like Settlers a lot and it seems like these expansions change the game so much, that its more like a whole new game anyway. I haven't played any of the expansions yet, but I am looking forward to it.

update: just when I was getting bored of plain settlers, I played seafares and it made the game new again. I like it.
