shake I grew up playing Avalon Hill war games from the 1960's like Afrika Korps (the best of the bunch) and Battle of the Bulge (I always had the image of pot-bellied soldiers when playing that one, which is probably the only reason I remember it). The components for all of these games were the exact same generic little cardboard squares, an abstract game board with hexes all over it, and a single die. These games were very engrossing and took hours to play, but I honestly never found them all that much fun, and for years I never had any desire to play another strategy board game. Then 30 years later, I discovered Caylus, which is a pretty thrilling game compared to what. Wow, a strategy game that has a real theme, is fun, and doesn't take too terribly long to play! Oh my gosh, what will they think of next...

And then there are all the kids' games we play during the family hour...
gulp

It's all fun.

My top ten + hot ten are the games I would need to have with me on the proverbial desert isle, in alphabetical order. It's quite an eclectic selection to keep it fun and interesting, including the games I love and the games my family loves... It's really really hard though to just list 20 games...

For any potential traders - you'll note I am trying to build up my collection of family and thematic games - gotta entertain the kids! But I am very open to offers of all sorts. I'll also sell games or trade them for gift certificates.
