What are your favorite games for each player range level. Try to only include games in your personal collection only. A single game may fill multiple player number slots. Out of all of the games you've listed, pick the single game out of your collection that you enjoy playing the most. When making a game selection at each player number, assume you have the right game group to play the game with (i.e. One that enjoys the game as much as you therefore providing maximum enjoyment of the given game at that player number).

Feel free to comment on why you've selected the games for each player number. Commenting is not required.

Have fun.

Thanks

Dominion with all expansions
1. Not sure if it counts, but when I'm by myself, I tend to play Dominion online. But that is usually against some nameless stranger so I'll call that one player.

Race for the Galaxy with various expansions
2. This recently discovered gem certainly takes the two player spot. My wife and I love to play this when we are short on time (we tend to love longer deep strategy Euros).

Le Harve
3. I can't understand why so many people don't like this game. It is the perfect balance of struggle at each "harvest" and building up your strategy. Sometimes I'll play a strategy without ships because I just love that struggle to "eat".

Ora et Labora
4. A four player game... perfected. This game takes the best elements from Agricola and Le Harve, and makes one of the most fun (and deep) Euro experiences out there. I never get tired of playing it.

Agricola and sometimes the FotM Expansion
5. Personally, I think the Farmers of the Moor Expansion adds to the game, but I can see why some people don't like it. They are afraid of messing with the original. Honestly, Agricola originally pulled me into the world of Board Gaming, and has a special place in my heart. You want to talk about gateway games? This literally was my gateway game, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. No way Ticket to Ride, Catan, or Carcassonne would've gotten me.

Dominant Species
6. I just played this game for the first time a few weeks ago... and I've played it every chance I've gotten since. It is about time I can play a deep Euro Strategy game with more than 5 players. And while I usually don't like cut throat games, this one doesn't feel like it since we're all just trying to survive.

7 Wonders with the Expansions
7. 7 Wonders is a great game. Add to that the Leaders Expansion, and you have an excellent 7 player experience without any long waiting you sometimes have to deal with when there are a lot of players. I hear the Cities Expansion will add some more strategy... which, as you can tell by now, I crave.

8+. Usually when I hit the 8 person mark, I prefer splitting the group and doing 2 four player games.

1 Player: Zombie in my Pocket
This is a fun little solo game. It fits in your pocket and you can play anywhere.

2 Player: Chess
My most played game for sure. I play almost every day.

3 Player: Puerto Rico
I have played this with 2-5. I like it at any of those number, but probably fits best right here at 3 (maybe 4, but that spot is taken).

4 Player: Chaos in the Old World
I don't really like to play this one with 3. Always with 4 so I had to put it here for sure. There are a couple others that could go in this spot as top 4 player games.

5 Player: Descent: The Road to Legend
I'll play this with other number of players too even though its supposed to be 5. I play with 2 or 3 just as often as 5. Love this game though.

6 Player: Scotland Yard
I try to only play this with exactly 6 people.

7 Player: Robo Rally
This one is fun with pretty much any number. More players = more chaos though.

8 Player: Nanuk
This one is better with more people. I have played with the minimum 5, but much better with 8.

1 Player: Friday [Although I have yet to play Field Commander: Napoleon]
2 Player: Antiquity, Innovation or No Retreat! The Russian Front - Very tough choice.
3 Player: Caylus or Le Havre
4 Player: Dungeon Lords
5 Player: Cyclades or Power Grid or Hansa Teutonica or Space Alert
6 Player: Dominant Species
7-10 Player: The Resistance

Couldn't decide on 5 players. I really enjoy a lot of games that fill the 5 player spot. A couple I haven't played yet though may end up filling that spot instead. I would LOVE to get in a game of Container.

1p: At the Gates of Loyang I'm not into solo board games as in general, but this is a fun solo puzzle.
2p: The Castles of Burgundy for longer and thinkier / Schotten-Totten for short but sweet
3p: Le Havre / Troyes Two amazing games that work far better with 3 than any other number.
4p: Insert almost any medium-heavy Euro here. There are tons of great options for 4.
5p: Glory to Rome / Power Grid / Railways of the World Not as many options with 5 so we usually fall back to one of these; luckily they are all awesome games.
6p: Say Anything / Wits & Wagers 6 is getting into party game territory, and these are 2 of my favorites. Or split into multiple groups.
7-10p: The Resistance Or split into multiple groups if others aren't interested.
11p+: Split into multiple groups.

Most Versatile: Glory to Rome which works great for 2, 3, 4, or 5!
