Oh boy! I'm a big Knizia fan - we held a Kniziathon at our local gaming group, and we usually do an all-Knizia night around his birthday. :)
ALL-TIME GREATS (and I mean all-time great games by anyone, not just Knizia)
#Ra - Such a tense game that combines auctions, press-your-luck, and set collection. And you get to yell "RA!" :)
#High Society - An auction game with some similarities to Ra, but nastier. The "poorest person loses" rule and the reverse auctions for bad items are just so mean!
#Through the Desert - An area-control abstract that puts a lot of balls in the air - reaching oases, fencing off areas, putting out the most camels in a color. And it's very pretty!
#Taj Mahal - Very interesting hand-management game in which you are trying to build the best hand to win auctions. Feels like Euro Poker.
#Lost Cities Board Game - Multiplayer #Lost Cities with racing on a variable-setup board. Play with the #Keltis rules!
#The Lord of the Rings - Seminal co-op that manages to achieve the feeling of a fellowship with a minimum of rules and chrome.
#Merchants of Amsterdam - Another Knizia auction/area control game - but with a Dutch Auction clock!
#Clash of the Gladiators - Possibly the most un-Knizialike game on the list... Dice rolling! Player elimination! Draft teams of gladiators and pit them against each other. If your gladiators die, you get to control the lions. :D
#Blazing Aces! A Fistful of Family Card Games , #Dice Games Properly Explained, #New Tactical Games with Dice and Cards - In addition to designing hundreds of board games, The Doctor has also written books about board games. All three of these are full of interesting insights into game design from a master - and they have games in them, too!

Let's see... with the family:#Merchants of Amsterdam, featuring the best tagline ever: "Dutch auctions are the way to riches and power" :) Then a bit of an election kick, with #Campaign Manager 2008 and #Mr. President. And the always-enjoyable #Slapshot - scored a Tiny Tim goal! With my (currently-online) game group:
#For Sale3x #Codenames
#The Voyages of Marco Polo
And then in person on Sunday, 3x #Pax Pamir (Second Edition). 2 last place finishes, but one Turn 3 win! :D We're planning an all-Pax day soon!
