Long ago, I reported the Decktet family prestige rankings. The Perl script I used stopped working, and it wasn't worth tallying by hand.

Today, I bodged together a Python script which plays with the newer API. Here are the top 20 as of today, with the Decktet itself for comparison:

* * * begin output * * *
game raw rtgs prtg
0 Decktet 7.5 464 46.0
1 Magnate 7.2 198 38.5
2 Emu Ranchers 6.5 97 30.0
3 Jacynth 6.6 69 28.0
4 Adaman 6.0 98 27.6
5 Goblin Market 6.7 42 25.1
6 Quincunx 6.9 38 25.1
7 Bharg 6.0 63 25.0
8 Thricewise 6.6 27 22.0
9 Myrmex 7.4 18 21.3
10 Gongor Whist 6.1 29 20.8
11 Bisque 7.1 18 20.6
12 Quäsenbö 6.2 25 20.1
13 Dectana 7.5 13 19.4
14 Biscuit 6.5 17 18.4
15 Oh Quay 6.5 17 18.4
16 Ace Trump 6.6 14 17.5
17 Frogger 6.8 12 17.0
18 Double Knot 7.0 11 17.0
19 Hermit 6.4 14 16.9
20 Colour Bazaar 6.6 12 16.4
* * * end output * * *


Despite being more than six years since I last tabulated the prestige rankings, the top 20 hasn't changed much. There's been some movement up and down, but most of the Decktet games which were in the top 20 back then still are.

Bisque, Dectana, and Double Knot have moved into the top 20.

Caravan, Ascend, and Varg Bid have all been nudged out. They're now at 21, 24, and 30 in the rankings (respectively).

meeple Looking back further, it's been about nine years since the first time I calculated prestige rankings.

All I recorded back then were the top 8, and today's top 8 is almost the same. The only game to have moved out is Varg Bid. Goblin Market has moved in.
