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.

I loved the idea of this game covering the whole of the jet age in a single box. But I'm not a big fan of the game's mechanics. It should have an impulse movement system, so I can't fly a tight loop and shoot down a plane tailing me at the start of my movement.

A math trade landed me an unpunched AH copy of this game. I avoided it back in the day because of my aversion to CDG's.

Sister game to The Russian Campaign. Personally, I would have liked this one to have been in the same large box as TRC, so I could stack them together.

This epic space opera campaign game was SPI's (and, later, AH's) attempt to cash in on the Star Wars craze.

An interesting study of the German invasion of France. The alternative setups allow for great play balance and surprising replayability from a game over 35 years old.

This is a pretty decent game. When played tongue-in-cheek, it's a lot of fun. Sadly, a niece of mine got into my room one day years ago, found this, got the water pistol, and promptly destroyed it (the gun, not the game).

I received most of a 1958 edition of Gettysburg in a recent trade. I'm now on the lookout for a few counters, and a box!

A subsequent trade has enabled me to get my hands on a complete copy of this version. Now, the '61 edition is the only one I'm missing.

I finally obtained a 1961 edition of Gettysburg, completing my collection of the various editions of the venerable game.

I'm not enough of a collector to obtain the various printings of each edition!

Far more complex than it's previous incarnation. Kind of an attempt to make a mini-monster, to compete with SPI's Terrible Swift Sword.

Battleline's Circus Maximus includes Gladiator in the same box. As I'm seeking the AH version of Circus Maximus, I'd also go for an AH edition of this game; that way, I can then move my Battleline game, to allow someone else the chance to enjoy this great game.

EDIT: No longer in my collection.

Chapter VII of the Great Campaigns of the American Civil War series, published by MMP. This is a great series of games.

I've trimmed the edges off of the maps with common areas to allow for the massive Northern Virginia campaign. I also have the Washington, D.C. map insert from The General.

This is NOT a remake of the 1960's game. This is more like the equivalent of Pacific Theatre Via Midway for the Smithsonian Midway game. Except, no Coral Sea scenario.

Just acquired in a GeekList Auction. The Tournament Rules are curious, particularly the hidden movement rules for the Japanese. There's a high degree of honor and trust involved in those 40+ year old rules.
