I'm new to this Eurogame-thing, and wanted to create my very first GeekList of my top ten games for my very first list! I'm also looking for games that my wife will play with me, so I'm including this wishlist, and I want help in narrowing down which of these games to buy, all of which I played this past weekend. And there's also this convention going on, so here's my list of games purchased and/or played there!

This is the best game, EVAR! It's in my top 5/10/20/etc., and it's the one game that got me hooked on this hobby. It's a shame that weak players in the second seat tend to ruin this game for everyone else, so it's clearly broken. It's on my wishlist of games to try and/or buy!

This is a dry game, but it's so challenging, even though it suffers from the luck of the draw. It's Knizia's best, and everything he's done since then has been a failed grasp at glory. This is also in my top 5/10/20/etc., and the one that got me hooked on this brain-burning hobby. Oh, and did I mention that this is the best game EVAR!?

This elegant game (best with 5!) is in my top 5/10/20/etc. It's the best game I've ever played, and it never hits the table often enough. I have it on my wishlist, but it's OOP, and I'm wating desperately for a reprint. If not for this game, I wouldn't be playing Eurogames at all.

This big-penis-piece game is one of the best games EVAR!, and it's in my top 5/10/20/etc. This was the first game I played in this hobby, and I don't seem to play it as much as I want to. I'm burned out on this thing already, and when I have 3, I'd rather play San Marco, anyway. I have it on my wishlist, and am waiting for the reprint!

This is the worst game, EVAR! There's too much luck/randomness, and I have it in my top 5/10/20/etc. This was the first game I ever played in this hobby, and I think it's one of the best gateway games out there! I'm burned out on it, but it's the best game, EVAR!, and everyone should own it.

This is the only Eurogame people should play. It's 42 hours long, and you'll have a splitting headache by the time you're done. It's the best game, EVAR!, but it never hits the table like it should. It takes too long. But it's worth it! It's in my top 5/10/20/etc.

My wife plays this one with me, and it's the best game EVAR! It's the first Eurogame I played, and I think it's the best gateway game people could buy. It's on my top 5/10/20/etc. Everyone should own this game, but it's too luck-dependent, and people count tiles too much. The expansions make the game too clunky, and Hunters & Gatherers is better, anyway.

I played this game before anyone else did, because I didn't play M******y when I was growing up. Sid Sackson rules! This is his most elegant design, and all other stock games wish they were this good. It's easy to teach, and has more luck than I like. Still, this is the best game EVAR!

This is a brilliant, awful game, prone to analasis paralysis, and should be played with a clock, if at all. It's way dry, but it's the only game that some people play, and it's the most intellectual game one could play. You have to play this all your life to be even halfway good at this thing.

I play/played this with family, and will never do it again. This game is the worst excuse for a roll-and-move game out there. I have fond memories of it from childhood, and besides, all of you out there are playing it incorrectly. You're supposed to auction off the properties, don't you know that? And why in the hell do you put money in the middle of the board for free parking? What's wrong with you?
