I thought about making up a contrived situation (desert island, about to spend 3 hrs with an unknown number of people) but decided against it.

Start with a list numbered 1-10 and then pick one and only one game for each number of players BUT you cannot repeat any games. GO!

Post your own lists in the comments!

Space Alert is the only game that I want to pick up and play solo. Yes, I've played Arkham Horror solo, but mostly to get a feel for new mechanics. There's way too much setup for Arkham Horror to play solo but Space Alert is a game I have a lot of fun with.

The difficulty about placing a game like Dominion is where you want to place it. I put it in my 2 player slot because it's my favorite game to play with my wife that I could play every day and not get tired of it.

The number 4 slot was decidedly difficult to place (especially since I've already used up some of my great games in other slots) but I really enjoy playing Spy Game. I think there's a good balance of luck, strategy, and memory.

The game is beautifully simple yet has plenty of strategy and decisions to be made.

A really fun game to play with a group of people. You're never out of the game and can always try that great last minute attempt to take the balloon to the top

Yes, the game says it plays up to 6 players, but I've played multiple times with 7 players and it's worked just fine. And, unlike with 6 players, you don't need a sympathizer.

The more the merrier in Arkham Horror. The game plays well with any number of players and it doesn't feel too slow with 8 players for me.

Nine is a really awkward number so I'd love to see what other people would put in this slot. I've been trying to pick meatier games, but Category 5 (6 Nimmit) is a good game when you have a lot of people and you start to realize that most of your games don't support a lot of players.

Wits and Wagers is great with any number of players, but one thing that it's really good at is playing with a lot of players. I've played games with more than 10 players by putting people into team and people have a lot of fun with it.
