Final Note: I think we've got them all, but see the note under Blooming Gardens (entry #48) which says you can add more if you're witty enough. Thanks to all who have participated - it was great fun!

-----begin original text-----
Well, if a Brit can make a list about the states of the US, a Yank can make one about the counties in England. I'm not even sure how many there are, though - 39? 40?

Let's limit it to England rather the UK - it's confusing enough to a Yank as it is. Someone else can do the rest of the UK if they feel like it.

I'll check in occasionally and remove duplicate counties. I expect some ECW games will hit a fair few of them.

I'll start with some obvious ones to get the ball rolling.

I'm afraid that even we Brits are extremely confused about our counties. After some 600 years with no changes, successive governments since the 1970s have made all sorts of administrative boundary changes, removed counties from the map, created new ones, reverted to what they had before, changed their minds. I really don't know how many there are now without counting them on a map.

Anyway, this is "Greater London".

"Beyond" Hadrian's Wall, you come to Scotland pretty quickly, but the Wall itself is principally in Northumberland. (It is in fact well to the south of the England/Scotland border.)

I've been on this site for 15 years now, and I'm far from sick of games, but I think I prefer a better balance of favorites to new games. I'm also tired of playing 4+ hr multiplayer games, but I'll still happily play really long games 2 player.
