The Highlander Collection >> There Can Be Only One!!
I love seeing hot lists, favorite games and collections over on BoardGameGeek, or the fanciful daydreaming of questions such as "If you were stranded on a desert island with only 10 games...." etc.
So here's my twist on the classic conundrum. For whatever contrivance floats your boat (messy divorce, hot lava death, termites), you need to assemble a gaming collection from scratch -- with one iNsAnE caveat: There Can Be Only One Game Per Designer!!
That's it -- just one Reiner Knizia game... One Sid Sackson game. And so on. The real trick here is that you may not necessarily pick your absolute favorite game from a designer, because you also need a nice, well-rounded collection. If your favorite game from several designers are all auction/bidding games, the collection will become too lopsided.
So please join in and help me decide what the Ultimate Highlander Game Collection would include. One game per designer, as diverse a selection of formats, mechanics, playing times and interests as possible. And just to make it more interesting, only 10 games total can be included in the collection, and only from designers with at least 4 games to their credit.
It's a lot tougher than it sounds, as there are so many great arguments to include certain games, and much tougher arguments for keeping them off the list. So wander on over to BoardGameGeek and read my picks -- and then tell me what you think.
