I've got a walk in closet with more games than clothes, but I have a bookshelf in my den that has the games I actually play.

No matter how good and sophisticated game design gets, chess is the greatest game of all time. If there is any flaw, it is that to truly be fun it requires a fairly evenly matched opponent, of course you could say that is it's strength.

Settlers of Cataan, what can I say? It's the best of the "German" games.

Dungeoneer is a perfect blend of strategy and just enough luck to keep it fresh and exciting. This has become one of my favorite games of all time.

Wiz-War is a classic with excellent replayability. I just wish the art was better!

Citadels is fun. Go get it now, you won't be dissapointed. This has my #1 criteria in a game: Easy to learn, difficult to master. Definitely funner with 4 or more players.

Okay, I confess, Puerto Rico is the one game on this list I don't own, but I will get it one of these days. It is really genious.

I've played games of Risk that have nearly ended friendships, ha! This is a nice take on Risk. But, take the command card out that cancels all other command cards for an entire turn, its WAY too powerful. it's broken...bad designers, they should know better.

I probably like this game more for the theme, than the gameplay. But it is well designed. Dune is my favorite setting of all time, and this game does it justice.

I wouldn't rate Guillotine as one of the great games of all time, but it is really fun. And a great diversion between other things. The theme is dark, but hilarious.

Talisman is entirely too dependent on luck. But the theme and board are done so well it's still fun. And I love all the different characters you get to play. I HATE the philosopher, but I always win when I play him. Go figure!?
