One of the joys I have in playing and studying chess and go is going through collections of classic games, and understanding the strategies, brilliant moves, blunders, etc. So please post on this thread what you feel are some of the best Arimaa games played so far. I'd be curious to check them out.

I don't know about "best", but I found the concluding game from this year's WC to be quite a show, with one of the most unusual long deadlocks and repetition fights I've seen in any game.

Wow, what a great question!  The following are games that, for whatever reason, have stuck with me long after they ended.  I'm sure this list is terrible, incomplete and underrepresenting many great players.  But maybe it's the start of something more interesting.
 
I limited myself to human vs human games from recent postal mixers and world championships.  Feel free to dig through old events for other interesting games.  Also, many WC games (including a few I've listed below) have received commentary.  Be sure to check that out too!
 
I reserve the right to add to this list later!

Boo vs chessandgo 2013 WC Round 13

An exciting game where the advantage seemed to go back and forth numerous times, all the way to the very end.
