This list is a follow-up to my previous list:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...

only this time I counted based on number of distinct players rather than by number of games played.

The same time frame was used (July 2003 - August 2005).

This list shows:
---The number of times the game appears on a monthly top five list
---The highest position it has achieved in a given month (and when that position first occurred)
---The longest number of months it appeared in a monthly top five.
---Commentary

Unlike the previous list, I had to break some ties (done by number of games played).

Note: Magic and Ra did not make the cut this time.

---Top Five finisher: 26 times

Puerto Rico stands out as the only game to place in the Top Five every single month in this timeframe. It has not held the top spot since February 2004.

As with the previous list, Carc has never gotten the top spot, despite its age and numerous showings.

SoC has met the same destiny as Carc, lurking but never king of the hill. With Magic gone, Settlers is the oldest game on this list.

Unlike the previous list, the top games in this list received far more of the top five spots. Notice the difference in top five finishings between SoC and all entries after it. The rankings by number of distinct players was less distributed than by games played.
