BGG Most Popular Games
The most popular new games.
As you see, most of new popular games are cooperative games and have solo rules!
For defining the most popular games I used BGG data about unique users who logged their plays in June 2017. If user logged some game (it's no matter, how many times), this game gets exactly 1 user. You can see number of users for every game in the last column of tables (Users 201706).
You can download recent tops from the next folder:
Century: Spice Road received the greatest increase in the number of players. It gradually pushes out Splendor. Another related, in my opinion, a couple of games: Barenpark slowly is replacing the similar game Patchwork.
And now lets look at leaders (full data are in the aforementioned pdf file):
It's obvious that recent games are more popular than older ones. So it's fair to compare only games of the same edition year:
