Pastiche to Munchkin Zombies


The Secret of Monte Cristo to Farkle Frenzy

The two games at either end of the challenge do not count as 2 of the 5 games.

So, in this case, we start with Pastiche [insert five games connected in some way] and we end with Munchkin Zombies.

Post your list of games (and your rationale) below. Try not to copycat someone else's list when possible. The lists can come at the challenge from a ton of different angles, so we are looking forward to seeing how creative you all can be.

We'll do a random drawing each episode and one lucky entrant will win a set of coveted Spiel dice. Have fun!

Pastiche: Artists are commissioned to create masterpieces requiring the use of a wide variety of colors.

Coloretto: Collect same-colored cards, all of which feature the color-changing chameleon.

Chameleon: Players use color-changing blocks in an attempt to build a tower with sides of matching color. 

Tower of Babel: An attempt to build the worlds eighth wonder.

7 wonders: The seven successful wonders of the world are built in three ages.

Through the Ages - A Story of Civilization: The advancement of culture throughout history – made possible by the refinement of the human brain.

Munchkin Zombies: A quest to gather human brains!

 (Watch out, folks, you're about to enter the random weirdness that is my mind.  Ye be warned!)

Secret of Monte Cristo...reminds me of Monty Hall, who was the host of...

Let's Make a Deal.  Now, a game that's all about making deals is...

I'm the Boss.  One of the all-time famous bosses is Boss Tweed, the head of the political machine of...

Tammany Hall.  Hmmm...that reminds me of another corrupt Hall:  Fawn Hall, assistant to Iran Contra's Oliver North.  His name reminds me of...

North American Rails.  That classic rail game reminds me of Andrew Carnegie, the name behind another famous Hall...Carnegie Hall!  And a good game for Carnegie Hall is...

Music Maestro II.  (Yes, it's obscure, but we owned it when I was a kid.  So, nyaaah!)  Another kid who would enjoy this game is the title character in that great musical children's story by John Lithgow:  The Remarkable Farkle McBride.  And THAT's how you get to...

Farkle Frenzy!  Now wasn't that clear?
