The Games of Franz-Benno Delonge (1957-2007)

WAQ:When I say "lawyer" what pops into your head? A:Someone who designs games about penguins." - Dormammu
This list of his 13 credited games in alphabetical order is meant to be a place to share the happy memories that he has created for so many of us.
What is striking is Delonge's remarkable consistency: out of just 9 ranked games, 8 of them are ranked 700 or higher. I have great memories of playing Big City, one of the first euros I ever bought, and Transamerica, one of the very best quick starters out there.
I urge everyone who loves his games to play one over the next day or two, as a fitting memorial to this great designer. I never met Delonge, but the original forum thread has some nice anecdotes from those who knew him: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/204155 .

Thank you for all the memories, and much peace and happiness to your family, Mr. Delonge.
