Avalon Hill is a company that has quite a bit of history behind it. While many people (and Geeklists) focus on the "old" Avalon Hill, especially the large amount of popular wargames that they released, the new incarnation of Avalon Hill is proving to still be a force in the industry, even though that force has changed drastically from the wargame-heavy AH that many people think of. And in my personal opinion, not only is Avalon Hill putting out some fun games (and a few not-so-fun ones) with some decent bits, the current line of AH games is tied together extremely well as far as graphic design goes as well - seeing them all lined up on my shelf with the AH logo on the large black field makes me want to get them all, much the way that the Alea titles work for many gamers (myself included).

The following is a list, ordered by rank, of the games that have been released under the Avalon Hill banner since AH was purchased by Hasbro in the late 90s. I've also included the year that each game was published as a "new AH" game, which can be quite different from the first date of publication. It does exclude the expansions/boosters that accompanied (or will accompany) Stratego Legends and Axis & Allies Miniatures. I've tried to keep the commentary in description to a minimum, though feel free to add as much commentary as you like in the comments.
