  • Duarte Pinto

    I would say Betrayal at House on the Hill as well

  • Tor Iver Wilhelmsen

    I did not see Isle of Skye there, list is invalid. 🙂

  • Some good choices on this list, but I don’t see what you’re using to define if a game is replayable. For instance, I don’t think Castles of Mad King Ludwig is any more replayable than most games – what do you think sets it apart?

    • I know several people who played it very, very many times. And then when they had no one to play, they played it alone.

  • Sean Brodrick

    Suggestion: Replace “Race for the Galaxy” with “Roll for the Galaxy,” a superior version. I like all your picks, though.

    • Thank you for your opinion! Maybe you would like to add something here?

  • Greg

    Hansa Teutonica.It’s different every game.

  • jcdietrich

    Duel of Ages II

  • Grant Brown

    I would add in Carcassonne and Codenames
