I started on this and then realized that I can use so many categories that I could probably keep my entire collection for one reason or another. :)

So I narrowed it down to my top 10 favourite mechanics from the BGA mechanics list and games I own and would keep:

Action Selection: #Scythe

Area Control: #Forbidden Stars

Coop Play: #Spirit Island

Deck Building: #Clank! In! Space!

Dice Rolling: #Big Trouble in Little China: The Game - Deluxe Edition

Network and Route Building: #Brass: Birmingham

Rondel: #Teotihuacan: City of Gods

Tableau Building: #Terraforming Mars

Tile Placement: #Isle of Skye: From Chieftain to King

Worker/Dice Placement: #Village

 

 

I've been playing #The One Hundred Torii for review, and man, I love it. It looks great, sure, but it also has super simple rules but has a great deal of thought in each turn. It's kind of like a mix of #Tokaido and #Carcassonne -- Tokaido for the journey aspect, and Carcassonne for the tile laying/route building. Very cool game.

Camels + Racing = #Camel Up

Too many races + Territory Control = #Small World

Dinner Building + Card Drafting = #Sushi Go Party!

Haunted House + Traitor Game = #Betrayal at House on the Hill

Iconic Monsters + King of the Hill = #King of Tokyo

Bean Farming + Trading = #Bohnanza: Bohna Nostra

Trains + Route Building = #Ticket To Ride

I could do this all day...

 

This meme hits home for sure lol. 

Honestly I did not think #The Estates would be a game I would ever buy, then I watched a playthrough on Heavy Cardboard and was hooked and also realized my game group really does like interaction and some meanness to their games. Sold. I also actually hated #Pax Pamir (Second Edition) the first time I watched a team and playthrough, but I kept hearing from everywhere that it was a top 10 game of all time for people. I revisited that teach and playthrough and fell in love. The mechanics are so simple, and the challenge lies in reading other people and the game state. Fascinating game and it is my first project I have ever kickstarted. 

As far as games that are on my wishlist that I never thought would be there are actually the two most recent additions. #Bus and #Age of Steam. I cannot get enough of AoS now, the bidding, the action selection, the route building, the deliveries, the planning. It all just comes together in a really neat system. #Bus is something that is actually similar to AoS with route building and deliveries but it is super fast but super challenging and a very unique design. One of the few Splotters that has appealed to me.
