Do you have a "main" roguelike?

It seems that a lot of Roguelike players have 1 or 2 "main" roguelikes they play, while also playing a rash of others now and again.

Do you have a main game you return to? (obviously given this forum, the answers might be skewed but eh )

Chengband, Vanilla town mode, with a bunch of bizarre code-of-conduct restrictions. (No pets, no dual wielding, no quests, no selling, and dive in 10-level increments.)

Based on this poll, 100% of players play Chengband in Vanilla town mode with a bunch of bizarre restrictions.

v4, Sang and Crawl. Sil any year now. Returning to FA, Un and NPP when I've retired and have more gaming time.

1st, DaJ and Steam (and Brogue).
2nd, NPP and FA (though I haven't played FA in ages, since tiles started acting up).
3rd, RePos. I've only played two or three times but really liked it, and achieved one of my few near wins.

1) Steam
2) V 3.0.9b
3) ToME 4.x.x
4) My own in-development RL.

And often weeklong bouts of other variants or roguelikes. I once played Crawl for two months without ever touching Angband, currently I'm kneedeep in NPP and tried ToME 2.x.x for like the first time in ages recently. I also recall having had a great time with Entro in the past.

I also liked Sil, but the restrictions were too incompatible with my regular mindset.

Also, ChessRogue. That. Was. Fun.

Currently Cheng, which has a hugely challenging mid-late game. Others that I like and may never win are Z-plus and Steam.

Past favorites include ToME 2.x, Vanilla, and Pos.

Mine is Angband and Dungeon Crawl, though I will play bouts of BRogue and Frozen Depths inbetween to shake things up.

Keeping track of commands takes a few minutes though. In BRogue I keep hitting Q for potions

ToME 2... I just keep returning to it.

I do kind of like V, but gameplay is frequently too... err... vanilla for me. You ask me, it needs more classes. LOTS more classes. And more magic realms, random quests, item and ego item types, totally unbalanced T2 style randarts, monsters, maybe terrain... Umm... Yeah. Suffice to say V doesn't have enough variety for my liking.
