Every so often someone will start a thread in a game's forums asking why it's currently in The Hotness. I think it would be much better to put all such questions in one place, because of the very brief relevance of such questions.

I'll begin: Why Colonial: Europe's Empires Overseas?

I usually just ask in the game's forums b/c those are the people most likely to know the answer

Someone is selling a copy on a Facebook board game sale/trade group. That's my guess why. I know that's why I looked it up this morning.

GMT just put it on sale in their latest update, so that probably drove some traffic to the BGG page.

Yep, in general it could be a sale, contest, release, or news. Basically, a bunch of people clicked on the game within whatever time limit BGG has set up. Certainly nothing worth worrying over.

This thread can't really work because people would have to subscribe to this thread to answer the question and really there is no reason to. It's much better to ask the people who really know the game and subscribe to that game's forums.

Perhaps. It's worth a try.
