Is there a search capability to determine the most owned game(s)by BGG users?

I suppose games like Chess or Go would naturally skew the results provided users put them in their lists but I was just curious what the most popular games are and if I have them in my collection

Browse games and sort by number of voters. Should give you a pretty good indication of what the most popular games are.

A simple halfway-house for this would be just ordering the browse games view by number of voters. it should be a reasonable approximation (admittedly not what you were after, but I expect the mapping of own <-> voted scales maps a fairly straight regression).

Check out Clockwork Wars. It's a pretty darn good dudes on a hex map Euro'ish steampunk game. Quick and fun.

If you do a sort by number of voters you get:

Catan (x)
Carcassonne (x)
Pandemic (x)
Dominion
7 Wonders (x)
Agricola (x)
Puerto Rico (x)
Small World
Ticket to Ride
Power Grid
Citadels (x)
Race for the Galaxy (x)

I own the ones marked with an 'x'. Of them all, I only love Agricola. The others I acquired as gateway friendly games or just out of acquisitiveness.

Doesn't number of voters really skew the numbers for 'the old guard'? You'll get the ones that are very highly owned (Catan, Pandemic, Carc, Dominion, 7 Wonders), but you also get the 'classic' Euros that have received a lot of voters here on BGG and doubtless a lot of people have tried without owning: Agricola, Caverna, Power Grid, Race for the Galaxy. I don't know how you account for that?

Use the menu at the top of this page: Misc --> Stats --> Top 10s

then see a page that offers both:

Most Rated Games
Most Owned Games

Small note for idle curiosity,

I own 6 of the so-called Top 100 (never really attracted to these), yet 21 of the Most Owned 100

Cool...Star Realms is the most owned game I don't have.

Pete (has played it though, because his buddy owns some of the cards)

Caylus looks like the first game on the list where voters are greater than owned, at 20933 votes to 20817 owners.

you can do it manually, or you can gain assistance from the "Insert Geek Link" drop-down menu available while composing a message. Choose "Custom Link".

I'm guessing just about everyone here on the forum has a few Magic: The Gathering cards lying around.

I'd say solitaire, but that would probably offend the sensibility of the anti-solo gamers on here.
