Inspired by the graduate reveiling of Tom Vasel's current top 100, I finally made my own. Never thought it would be so time consuming though.
This list only includes games owned by me and my wife. I did not include any expansions. My personal ratings are not yet up to date with the ranking in this list but they soon will be. Here it is:

Alex Peters's top 100.

100 Magna Grecia
Magna Grecia would have been higher on this list if the colors chosen hadn,t been so awfully confusing. I think more people would be likely to play this game if other graphics had been used.

99 Kingsburg
Kingsburg is a great development game to play with untrained gamers. It is easy to explain and has an easy flow of play. That said, it's playing time certainly is a big minus for what you get.

98 Aton
Aton with it's 101 ways of gaining points, certainly is a nice little 2-player game. Even though i seem to be unable to win it. The game is quite abstract and therefore the theme also a little bit far sought.

What do you mean archiving is a dull. Ad Acta makes use of an innovative gamesystem which is maybe a little bit dry but very entertaining. And the theme fits perfectly.

96 Dragon's Gold
Dragon's Gold is my favourite of little blue Eurogame games. The negotiations can be hilarious, nervewrecking and quite frustrating at times. It is light and can be explained in a short amount of time.

I like Elasund especially as a 2-player game. The 4-player game can take a little bit too long for what the game has to offer. It takes the core mechanics of Catan and uses them in an interesting way.

94 Script and Scribes
Although I am not a fan of games leaning too heavily on luck, and Script and Scribes certainly has luck running through it's vains, I find myself liking this game quite a bit. It is quick, again easy to explain and the end results can be quite surprising. It is always a tense moment when the winners of each colour are revealed.

I love the Kosmos 2-player range in general. Not all of them are good but many of them are. Caesar & Cleopatra has nice looking cards. And who doesn't like a game that allows you to have orgies.

Factory Fun is arguably one of Corne's best games. It is very original. Some people will be turned down by it's solitaire nature. It is more of a puzzle which you play together with your friends.

I can say that I am the proud owner of the original limited Chaos Arena series. I think this is my most humouros game. My wife stopped playing this one when I made her carefully reserved arrows useless by casting the "Shitty Shitty Wheather" spell.
