I'm moving from Seoul, Korea to London, UK this summer; I will stay there for an year and a half for my postgraduate course. I'm sure that I will be able to find a good gaming group over there. However, when it comes to choosing the games that I will carry with me, my heart is torn between about 100 games in my collection. I'll give it a shot in this list though. Games are listed in alphabetical order.

BTW, I have lots and lots of questions regarding the life in London. So if any kind, London-based gamer is willing to help, I will greatly appreciate it. Just drop me a message. Thanks in advance!

My favorite game, period. Part of me thinks that, since this is such a great game, I will be able to play this game with someone else's copy there. But I love Age of Steam so much, that I cannot think of other game if I had to choose one to carry with me. But then again, that would mean all the expansion maps too!

I'm expecting a low budget for entertainments while I'm in London, so why not bring a solitaire game with me?

This is a great 2 player card game. And my wife, who also will be studying in London, likes this game too.

If you leave the box behind, the actual content of the game takes very little space, which makes this game a good candidate for a long-distance move. It's also an intense brain-burner, so the replayability issue will be solved.

If I had to choose one abstract strategy game, I will not hesitate, not for a second. It's GIPF, with all the potentials.

I know, I know. This game is BIG. However, as with Ambush, I really like the solitaire aspect of this game. Nah, maybe I will have to be content with the BGG online implementation.
