Again a different approach to determine the best pearls out there. The question I asked myself is when do we have enough ratings to say something about the overal quality of a game without "correcting" it to a bayesian average.

The criteria:

A minimum average of 8.25
A minimum number of 400 ratings. Why 400? This was the only way to reach a top 10

See a new top 10 being revealed. The best pearls out there at the moment.

Probably the best looking game out there. Too expensive for me though.

Of course I know the original Puerto Rico. A ground braking game. Yet it has lost my interest since. I do not know whether this version adds anything new to it apart for some nice components.

I only played the first edition and I liked that. The problem however is to find somebody to play it with because it is rather daunting.

Great game. Unfortunately I cannot get anyone to play it anymore. Too random is the most heard complaint and without regular play I can understand that. This one really starts to shine with more play.

Played it at the Essen fair the year it was published, liked it, did not buy it then because of the expectation to not play it. Have bought it recently anyway (I did not get it out of my mind) and hope to play it once someday soon.

Played it. Great components (for a guy that is). Smooth play, easy rules, yet it struck no chord whatsoever with me. I will not be taking this out very often anymore.

For now unknown to me. The only LCG I played so far is Lord of the Rings and I found that not living up to my expectations.
