Dameo and Lines of Action climb as tastes move to classic simplicity and depth.
Dec 22, 2013
Adjusted the top -20 to be more reflective of current interest and desire to play.
Nov 3, 2012
More moves among the top 50
Sept 27, 2012
Dameo added and very high
Entrapment moved up
a few other tweaks
July 20, 2012
Added Armada and Netzwerk two unheralded games I like a lot.
Note as I add now some drop past 100, but are left for interest sake.
I have also created sister list for Dexterity games that are my second favourite genre after abstract strategy.
Update July 14, 2012
This is a list which took ages to create.
And I still love to adjust it from time-to-time
Always seem a game arriving that deserves addition.
So visit on occasion.
UPDATE Sept. 1, 2011
This list has slowly grown over the time since I started it to have more than 30 (a few honourable mentions, so figured it was time to make it a top-50 from my personal collection, OK Top-65 as I over-added LOL I imagine one night I make it a top -75
OK 100 it is (Only made sense)
A realignment of games
Hive dips as it becomes apparent early advantage near-impossible to overcome.
Terrace and Tzaar move up.
UPDATED - Sept 1/09 Tzaar and Axiom reach the top-25, and several ganes climb or fall a few spots, most notably Navia inching to second.
the list is inching toward a Top-35 LOL
The world of abstracts is where I am happiests, but among the hundreds of games which fit the category, only a few are my favs.
Here is a personal list, one which initially proved hard to finish as many games while enjoyed (Oshi and Razzle Dazzle come to mind) They are not deserving of a "Best Of" list.
Some recent game editions have since proven great additions to my collection and deserving og top-25
So the list remains a work in progress.
THE LIST IS DONE IN ORDER BEST through to 25
A couple of general comments, no dice may be rolled, cards randomly drawn, or pieces pulled randomly from a bag (Ta Yu), and make this list.
I am not a fan of stacking games in general.
Hex should be here, but so far I don't get it *laugh
Newer games which have my interest, but not yet played to know if they are as good as hoped include
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/32417 (too pricey though)
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/27813 (tried and not worthy of top 25, or probably top 50
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/22947 (still to try)
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/31975 (good game not top 25 though at least with limited plays)
