BGG' The Most Popular Games

The most popular games - according to number of unique BGG players in 2016.
Each player, who logged that he played some game at least one time for the whole year, gave to this game one player (and no matter how many games he has played total). I took into account the total 3 million votes to 1 thousand of the most popular games (games that have received less than 300 votes were not considered). Since each game could get no more than one of the voice of each user, it gave 1.2 million votes, or 2.5 on average for the same user and the same game. Overall, this confirms my earlier inference that, on average, each player plays his game only during 2 months. Or, in other words, out of every 6 of his games the player usually plays only 1 game, and the remaining 5 games are on the shelf.
