I was working through my collection today re-rating games and updating comments (have YOU done that lately?) and I noticed that a large chunk of the games I own start with the letter B. I looked at games I've rated and found that S was the most popular letter.

RULES:
1. Look at your collect of games you OWN and find the letter most used. Add the game from that letter that YOU have rated highest. In the comment list: Your rating, how many games start with that letter, and what percent that is of total games owned.

2. Now look at all the games you've rated and find the most popular letter. Do the same as before with YOUR highest rated game from this letter.

I wonder if anyone out there has more Q or Z games than anything else.

I've been on this site for 15 years now, and I'm far from sick of games, but I think I prefer a better balance of favorites to new games. I'm also tired of playing 4+ hr multiplayer games, but I'll still happily play really long games 2 player.

My most owned letter is T with 10 games.
Taj Mahal
Terrace
Through the Desert
Tichu
Ticket to Ride
Tikal
Torres
Tower of Babel
Tutankhamen
Twixt

It seems to be somewhere around 12-13% of my collection. Through the Desert is currently my highest rated T game, but Tower of Babel is right on its heels. I've only played Taj Mahal once so far, but I could see it up there soon too.

Bs comprise about 12.5% of my collection, of which Blokus is the highest rated with 8. There are 8 other letters with games rated higher than 8, of which S is the only to have two such games (Shadows Over Camelot and San Juan).

Of my rated games, S moves to the top with 13.4% though there are no interesting new entries. It turns out that B is artificially highly represented in my collection because of expansions for Bang, Battle of the Bands and two Batman games which are the same.

100 of my 1008 owned, and 26 of my 269 rated; are "S"es (esses?), making that letter the leader of both categories.

I presumably rated this game (a 9) just after I played it; my admiration for the game peaks just after I play (I always love it), and then slowly ebbs away over time (when I remember how clunky and luck-driven it is, and forget how much I enjoyed actually playing). Right this second, probably one of Santiago, Samurai, or Stephenson's Rocket (all eights) would take the top spot...until I play SotN again, that is.

C: 20/74 = 27%

Without expansions C would have 12 games.

My most owned letter is 'T', and Thingamajig is the highest rated game among them at 9. I think it is thrown off by the fact that I have a few Trivial Pursuit variants. The highest concentraction of really good games I have is actually the letter 'P', where I have three 9's and a 6.

Of games I've rated, 'T' is still the winner. The only other 'T' game I've rated a 9 is Time's Up. What can I say, I love good party/social games.
