61.  Titan
Titan is a fantasy board game for two to six players, designed by Jason McAllister and David A. Trampier. It was first published in 1980 by Gorgonstar, a small company created by the designers. Soon afterward, the rights were licensed to Avalon Hill, which made several minor revisions and published the game for many years. Titan went out of print in 1998, when Avalon Hill was sold and ceased operations. A new edition of Titan, with artwork by Kurt Miller and Mike Doyle and produced by Canadian publisher Valley Games became available in late 2008.[1] The Valley Games edition was adapted to the Apple iPad and released on December 21, 2011.

Each player controls an army of mythological creatures such as gargoyles, unicorns, and griffons, led by a single titan. The titan is analogous to the king in chess in that the death of a titan eliminates that player and his entire army from the game. The player controlling the last remaining titan wins the game.

62.  Medici

Medici is a German-style board game by Reiner Knizia. Players buy cards in an auction and match in series and in sets to end up with most points from those formations. Before he was a game designer, Reiner Knizia was a quantitative analyst, a profession that manages and attempts to price risk for banks. This is fitting as the Medicis were bankers and traders who improved accounting standards and as such would have built their financial empire on judging risks. In this tradition, Medici the board game is based on the pricing of risk: each lot of commodities has an uncertain future value based on how cards are drawn from the deck, what other players buy, and other factors.

70.  Dune
Set thousands of years in the future, Dune the boardgame is based on the Frank Herbert novels about an arid planet at the heart of the human space empire's political machinations.

Designed by the creators at Eon of Cosmic Encounter fame, some contend that the game can best be described as Cosmic Encounter set within the Dune universe, but the two games bear little in common in the actual mechanics or goals; they're just both set in space. Like Cosmic Encounter, it is a game that generates a lot of player interaction through negotiation and bluffing, but that can be said of numerous unrelated games.

72.  Words Of fortune

Looking for a game to challenge your vocabulary? Or planning to challenge a friend? Words of Fortune is a very popular and challenging word game which allows you to play alone in tournament or practice mode or play with a friend in tournament mode. The game was originally designed in 1997 in 12 days. It was my very very first VB program. As people started appreciating the game, I released it as a freeware. The game is available for downloading from most of the popular freeware/shareware sites. More than 60,000 copies of the game have been downloaded since then. In very short time, I made 15 releases of the game, mostly to add new features, add music, improve UI etc. A primary school in Australia is using the game to help children learn words through fun. Few commercial companies are distributing the game as freeware on CD's. In very little time, Words of Fortune gained huge popularity among people of all ages. Some people use the game to gain vocabulary for SAT/GRE tests. I am busy with other projects now, however I do plan to add more features and fun stuffs to this game in future versions. So, if you are a Words of Fortune "Fan" then keepvisiting this page
