Back in 2011, I created a geeklist of my top 100 games (My Top 100 Games). It is time to update that list.

For game families (such as Ticket to Ride), I just included my favorite of the family. Some great games may have been excluded from this list because I have either not played them often or recent enough for me to judge them properly.
Feel free to let me know your thoughts.

Games that were on the list in 2011 but dropped off:
Thunderstone
1960: The Making of the President
Age of Gods
Attack!
Fire & Axe: A Viking Saga
Die Macher
Prophecy
Fury of Dracula (Second Edition)
WildLife
Mansions of Madness
Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age
Lost Cities
Race for the Galaxy
Dungeons & Dragons: Conquest of Nerath Board Game
Gears of War: The Board Game
Phoenicia
Notre Dame
Guillotine
Twilight Struggle
At the Gates of Loyang
Kings & Things
Chaos in the Old World
Dungeon Lords
Paranoia Mandatory Bonus Fun! Card Game
Heroscape Master Set: Rise of the Valkyrie
Tales of the Arabian Nights
Hammer of the Scots
La Città
Thurn and Taxis
Tongiaki: Journey into the Unknown
Cargo Noir
Primordial Soup
PitchCar Mini
Hearts

100. I enjoy deckbuilders greatly, and this game puts an interesting twist on it. The quality of the dice is not the greatest, and it is very random, but it is still a lot of fun.

99. Tobago places an interesting twist on the deduction game theme. The treasure is determined by the clues you place and not the other way around (the sci-fi game Android is somewhat similar in that respect). The artwork and component quality of this game is also top-notch.

98. Sometimes it's fun to play a simple, quick filler. No Thanks is one game that fits that need (there are others higher on the list). Probably one of the simplest games out there to teach.

97. Runebound has dropped significantly because it's game length has kept me from playing it much. I still enjoy it though. I enjoy leveling up your character getting better items to defeat tougher monsters.

96. I'm not big on the whole zombie craze. I think this might be the only zombie game on my list. I do enjoy a good deckbuilder though, and this is one. The theme that you will die and you just have to hold out longer than your opponents is interesting. I also enjoy the player interaction with this one.

94. I'm not that big on fully cooperative games, but Pandemic is one of the best. It builds some great tension. It starts off slow, but soon the situation can spiral out of control.

93. I do enjoy semi-cooperative games though, especially ones with hidden traitors. Betrayal has some great thematic elements. The verious stories may not be well balanced, but they are still fun.

92. This listing stands for both versions of the Adventurers, although I prefer the original. Indiana Jones the board game. This is a great push-your-luck game filled with theme.

91. Chaotic fun. This game can sometimes drag on too long (especially if using too many flags), but it is very fun. This game is one where it is often more fun to lose than win.

88. This is a very interesting game. It is unique in some of its mechanics, giving a sense of tension as you do not know what your opponents are doing until you attack or are attacked. It is best as a two player game and I don't play two player games often, so I haven't played it much.

87. A streamlined role-selection game. It does have some drawbacks. It can be frustrating if you are often attacked by the assassin or thief and it can be too long with larger numbers of players. But it is still a great game.

86. This is a very good negotiation game. It has somewhat of a similar feel to Greed Incorporated, which is further up on this list. The bribing aspect is one of the things that makes this game great.

85. This game is all about anticipating demand and other player actions based on limited information. It is a tight game where you can possibly do worse than if you had done nothing at all.
