As far as I can tell, the most owned game in the bgg database is Settlers of Catan, which has almost 25,000 owners right now. I suspect there are more chess and checker sets than that, but not that are listed on bgg.

This list is for games that have fewer than 1% of the ownership of Settlers, but are loved or at least well-liked by those who have played them. I've added 20 I've found. Please add on every game that you know of that have fewer than 250 owners and an average rating of at least 6.5 (to choose an arbitrary cutoff point). When you add a game, put this information in the entry:

Date added
Average Rating (at time of posting)
Number of Owners (at time of posting)

The list is sorted by average rating. If a game gets more than 250 owners, I'll retire them from this list.

This latest release of Dr. Finn's games plays pretty fast. And is deeper than suspected.

This 2005 game by popular designer Vlaada Chvatil isn't as common as most of his releases. The french edition (Robin des Bois) is easier found than the original version (Merry men of Sherwood)
