Seems I can't go two minutes without stumbling on a top twenty outside of the top two hundred list for the past couple of days. So I did what I normally do... I resisted and refused to jump on the bandwagon.

But, like a piece of corn stuck between your teeth, the idea of what twenty games I liked beyond the top two hundred games gnawed at me, and gnawed at me...

And so, a couple of days later, here I am... unable to resist the call. So, without further ado, allow me to present my personal favorite games outside of the BGG top two hundred.

An excellent game that deals with a unique period. One of my favorite games inside or outside of the top two hundred. An excellent game... one I wish would get the "deluxe" treatment from GMT as well.

Kaivai is one of the best euros I have ever had the fortune (and sometimes misfotune) to play. A superb, tense game where both long term and short term planning come into play.

This is one of my favorite wargames (or rather, one of my favorite games, period). Its a pity I don't get it on the table more often. Butterfield created a great system here.

It also helps that it can either be played solitaire OR cooperatively. A great game.

This new game (or fairly new game) by Stefan Feld has simply wowed me. I love the tons of actions available to you and I specially love the "candle" mechanic.

The game that introduced me to area impulse wargames, and remains one of my favorites. Its my standard when it comes to area impulse games, and I'm still on the lookout for another game that's as good or better. Any suggestions?

A great game from Chudyk which I personally prefer over Glory to Rome (which is another great game in its own right). Yes, it can be confusing and even downright overwhelming in the first couple of plays, but once you have a firm understanding of the rules, powers and iconography... the game flows extremely well and plays very smoothly. I wouldn't play it with four players though.

One of the best games of 2010... and I love how its not from the usual crop of designers (at least I don't think so).

I love the route building aspect of this game, and I like how varied each Sun Phase can be thanks to the placing of various powers in the game... you can either all be nice to each other, or screw over one another.

A great, great game about the Spanish Civil War, with roots similar to Hannibal and Washington's War. A pity its a tad hard to play via PBEM though, due to the reactive property of certain cards during battle.

A good game that gives a slight twist to the deck building genre (chips instead of cards).

I was recently introduced to this old game and I instantly took a shining to its "create and eat poop" concept... hehehe...

I like the variable powers available to the organisms and look forward to exploring this game further.

I got Telestrations... and trade it away. I'd rather have the open endedness of Eat Poop You Cat (though I do miss the nice components that Telestrations provided). A great party game.

While there are times where the wheeling and dealing can feel a tad restrictive... and while there are turns where you'll end up doing nothing but get more cards... I like this game. It shows you a side of your friends you might not normally see. Another great game.

A great pick-up and delivery game that made specifically for two players. Great for when you want to get the feel of a pick-up and delivery game but don't have copious amounts of time for one.
