This past summer, I launched a series of GeekLists looking back at The Avalon Hill Game Company, in honor of both Avalon Hill's 50th year and marking 10 years since the original company's demise.

One thing I didn't get to do, however, was to catalog my Avalon Hill game collection. Over the past couple of months, I've done just that. Sadly, a couple of titles have come up missing. But here are the ones I still do have, from both the old Avalon Hill and Hasbro's AH, as well as AH-related products from MMP.

Hope you enjoy this stroll down memory lane.

This list is ever-changing and growing. Keep checking back to see what I've added.

Operation Market-Garden is one of my favorite campaigns of the Western Front. I eagerly snatched up the ASL study of Arhnem when it came out. Boy, am I happy I did back then! It now fetches mad money.

An inexpensive copy from Consimworld was missing a counter. But since I never had this one, I picked it up.

This is actually a really good business model game. Dealing with general concepts, it does make you deal with the issues behind supply-side economics.

A recent poke around eBay found me bidding on this Leisure Game from the late 60's. I won the auction. It seems like a great little travel game for the kids on long road trips, especially the Car Bingo board.

I have the Battleline edition of this game, acquired in a recent trade. However, I like the refinements made by Avalon Hill, so I'm still on the lookout for that version.

But a GORGEOUS box cover.

EDIT: No longer in my collection.

I've found that adding this just makes a game of Civ or Advanced Civ a lot more friendly, with lots of extra elbow room for everyone to spread out on.
