Looked at my collection and thought it might be fun to have at least 1 game for every letter of the alphabet. Odds of me actually doing this are slim, but figured it could be fun to look for recommendations this way. Keep it 1 suggestions per letter, please! Also, please check out my collection to get a feel for what I like, if you have time. Thanks!

I said "if you have time". I'm not putting a gun to anyone's head. This thread is meant to be fun. Thanks!

El Grande (fantastic game if you count that as an E...)
Innovation (fast playing card game, chaotic at higher player counts)
Jambo (fun 2P card game)
Nations
Yellow & Yangtze (successor to Tigris & Euphrates, which I would probably pick over Y&Y but still)

E: Endeavor (second edition coming soon)
I: Innovation
J: Jaipur
N: No Thanks!
Q: Qwirkle
V: Vikings
X: X-Wing (listed under Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game, but most people just say X-Wing, so there)
Y: YINSH

Also...shameless plug, I did a GeekList in 2011 called The ABCs of Gaming - The Most Essential Games. A lot of games have come out since then, but it gives an alphabetical starting point.

One year I did a thing where I played at least one game for every letter of the alphabet, so I'll tell you the best game I've played for each of these letters (for my taste, and with the caveat that best doesn't necessarily mean great). An asterisk is for a game that I like enough to own a copy of.

E - Eminent Domain
I - Innovation/Istanbul (tie)
J - Jambo
N - Nippon* (but really there are a number for this letter, I also own Navegador and Neolithic)
Q - Quadrum* (though The Quacks of Quedlinburg looks like it would be a ton of fun, potentially better than the one I listed)
V - De Vulgari Eloquentia* (honorable mentions Il Vecchio and Vinhos)
X - Xenon Profiteer
Y - Yunnan*

I think "I" is the weakest letter for me actually. Although I suspect I'd really enjoy Indonesia if I ever got the chance to play it.

Just for fun, I don't own any games that start with E, I, J, U, X.

For some reason I find that when people call their own plugs "shameless", they are actually high quality plugs. This, no exception.
