Working on my Whiteboard - Top Ten WOD's??

Hi Everyone:
So, I'm working on my whiteboard for my garage gym. I'm recording times/records for everyone in my family. My real estate on the board is constrained. I have room allocated to record the mainsite WODs [up to two days before erasing]. I've also allocated room to permanently display 12 other exercises. One of these exercises will be Crossfit Total. Another will be EventBests [pullups, 500m row, 1000m row, 400m run, rope climb,etc]. This leaves me room for 10 primary WOD's/Girls.

FYI, I will be recording all the daily exercises in a tablet for archiving but I want to have a quick on-board reference for the "top 10". I've filled in a couple of spots for the top 10, but I'd love to hear from others who have been doing Crossfit for some time as to what they consider to be the top 10 WODs/Girls. I realize that the replies will be a matter of personal preference, but I'm hoping to come up with a general consensus.

1. Fran
2. Tabata This
3. ?
4. ?
5. ?
6. ?
7. ?
8. ?
9. ?
10.?
*11. Crossfit Total
*12. Event Bests

Thanks in advance!!
John

+1 for the filthy fifty. Don't forget Helen and Murph.

Angie and Fight Gone Bad are two of the benchmarks (along with CFT) we do at crossfit central. One benchmark WOD per month, rotating though every three months.

I'd go with Elizabeth, Cindy, Fran, Helen, Diane, Jackie, FGB, Grace, Nancy and Mary. Most of the different movements and rep schemes of CrossFit are well represented in this group. Some light, some heavyish, some short, some longish.

Thanks for the input so far. I'm enjoying everyone's rationale as to why they like the WODs they like. Please keep it coming!!

If you are going to go with 10 only, I like this list, but I'd remove Mary, Diane and Nancy, and I'd add Isabel, Murph and CFT.

CFT is a must - so is Murph. You must have at least one Hero, and I like Murph the best.

Fran, Diane, Jackie, Grace, Elizabeth, Helen & Annie - a CF'er with good times on all those 7 is a guaranteed bad ***. For other 3 I'd have CFT, 2k Row & may be a muscle-up club or something like that.
