I just placed a game order yesterday, and was afraid curious to see how many games I own, after having not checked in a while. Answer: 499! Not counting expansions. Of course if I went through all the public domain games, I'd probably find a few I haven't marked as owned, but that's kinda lame. So what I'm curious about is:

What game will be the 500th I own?

I don't know the answer. But maybe you do! Enter the contest by adding a game to this list that you think will be the 500th game in my collection. Obviously you can check my collection to see what I already own and what I like. You can also use your entry to try to convince me why the game you enter should be be my 500th! Likewise, feel free to comment on other people's guesses/suggestions to try to steer me away. devil

Slight wrinkle: I only order online, and always a large enough order to get free shipping. Which means it won't be just a single game that puts me at 500.

So here's the deal: The first correct entry in the list wins 50, and all subsequent correct entries win 10. So guess early! Each game can only win once, so don't enter a game someone else already entered.

Happy guessing / suggesting!

Hints:
1) I suspect I will place the next order by the end of November.
2) I usually order both new and older games in the same order.
3) Here are my two most recent orders:
November 3:
The Mines of Zavandor
Inca Empire
Commands & Colors: Ancients
Combat Commander: Europe
September 29:
Twilight Struggle
Dominant Species
Small World: Tales and Legends
Small World: Cursed!
September 27:
Parade
Mountain of Inferno
Steel Driver
10 Days in Europe
Age of Industry
Le Havre: Le Grand Hameau
Constantinopolis
The Castle of the Devil
Glory to Rome
Dixit
4) My ratings and comments are probably a better predictor than my last few orders, which look a little anomalous, even to me.

Fine print: Please do not change your vote by deleting your entry and adding a new one. Because a) if there are comments I want to preserve them, and b) since there can only be one entry per game, your entry influenced the choices available for people who entered after you.

Your only game that you've rated a 10 is Tichu. Now you are yearning to explore a game in the same vein that doesn't require exactly 4 players. Haggis will be much easier to get to the table, and you'll enjoy playing it with your wife and kids instead of having to play on BSW.

As a fellow whom I seem to agree with regarding Mormon games and how very little good ones there are out there, maybe I can convince you to get one that's actually pretty good Plays fairly quick (under an hour easy), is easily understandable so kids can play but is still an enjoyable build and competition. In fact, you should get this and play it along with Conquest of Paradise

This one sounds quite fun, and from your other ratings perhaps you might like this. Also, it shares a part-name with your possible 10-rated boardgame, Domaine, which has to count for something.

I would like to convince you to get wings of war as your 500th game. I have been addicted to it lately. It works well with beginners and veterans. The rules are adaptable and there are a lot of expansions and senarios. It is great with 2-4 players or more if you get more planes. The games are quick and fun.
