The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

For those unfamiliar, a worker placement game is one that utilizes a "mechanic requires players to draft individual actions from a set that is available to all players. Drafting is done one-at-a-time and in turn order. Once drafted, an action can no longer be taken until a subsequent turn or until the action space is no longer occupied by a worker" (according to BGG's definition).

Thus, any game on this list will use this worker placement mechanism and usually will use other mechanisms along with it.

I recorded a video of this top ten list for your enjoyment.
