I enjoy reading everyone elses top lists. I started thinking about mine and how I acquired some of the games in my top list. Most of the great games that I have purchased were due to reviewers mainly (thank you Dice Tower) and various posts on BGG.

I would like to do my list a little differently. Instead of having a top list of all time, this list is my top 35 favorite games in my collection. If I have played a game in my collection it has a rating. The ones not rated I have yet to play.

I would love to get suggestions from people for games that are similar to any that I rank here that are not in my collection.

Thanks

I am a big fan of economics games. I like the buying companies and the auction that could happen after every round.

The worker placement mechanic is probably my favorite mechanic. I also like resource management. I'm not a huge fan of dice rolling your workers, but I enjoy the game and we always have fun when we break it out.

I enjoy this game and just recently picked up the expansion. I like how money is tight in this game forcing you to make a few tough decisions.

This game is just fun for me. I love the blind bidding aspect of the game. The treasures are cool pieces and the few times we have played this game it has always been very close right down to the wire.

I am not normally a big co-op game fan. This is one of the better ones. Have not played it on the hard level yet as this game is pretty challenging as it is.

New York or Alhambra. I recently got the Alhambra big box from the Speculation kickstarter. New York I have had longer and have actually played. I don't love tile placing games but I like area control or maybe I should say majority control.

I used to have this game much higher on my list but the last few times we have played this game we have run into some issues with mustering. Still a very good game.

One of my wives' favorite games. So this gets to the table alot. I don't have a lot of pick up and deliver games but this one is simple and pretty fun. I am not very good at this game for some reason.

I'm a sports sim guy at heart. I actually design sport simulation games. I don't consider Formula D to be in that category but the races are alot of fun. One of my game groups is actually doing an entire race season using this game. Another game I am getting stomped in regularly.

I really love building space ships. I still like the base game the best however. I know that the expansions add alot to the game but I like the basic tiles. It makes the game much easier to teach new people and get more people willing to play it.

I like area control games a lot. I like this game but there are a few I like just a little bit better. I have never used any of the expansions. The base game is pretty good for us.

I wasn't all that crazy about this game the first time I played it. I do like the card mechanic in the game and I've enjoyed the game more each time I play it.

The best thing I like about this game is that you can do multiple things to score points. This is another game my wife enjoys so that is always a positive.

I was actually a little surprised that when I went through my list this one was ranked so high. We always have a really good time when we play this game. I like negotiation games.

I bought this game at a FLGS on sale for $20 and what a bargain. There is so much I like about this game. I like the bidding for roles each turn. I like building and producing your own buildings. I even enjoy shipping goods and people.

Another game I really really like. I love all of the different decisions to make in this game. I don't have the expansions yet but I plan to get them. My one knock on this game is that it seems way too short. Maybe it's just me.

Great game! Some aspects of area control and blind bidding (for lack of a better term). Low victory points which is another aspect of some games I really like.

I don't like the theme. I don't really care for musicals and I have zero interest in any game that I have to put them on. I really like this game though. I think all of the combined mechanics make this game challenging and force you to make some tough decisions.

This game has been on my wishlist for a while. After I played it a couple of times I ended up buying it. Playing cards and anticipating what others are going to do is what makes this game for me. Since everyone has the same deck of cards to start with you can't get beat by someone pulling the perfect card.

My favorite of the co-op games. This used to be in my top 10 but based on the amount of players the game changes drastically. That has been our experience anyway. Rarely have we lost this game with less than 4 players but we have never won with 6 players. I love hard co-op games and this would still be in my top 10 if I always played it with 6.

I really think this game gets the balance near perfect. It's random like a stock market game should be but you also can do just enough to influence the market in your favor. Doesn't always work out, but this game is fantastic. I really want to play this with 8 players.

Hands down the best game components of any game I have ever played. That has nothing to do with my ranking but it's worth mentioning. There are alot of really good mechanics in this game but my favorite is placing influence to control the gangsters to take actions with them. I know this game hasn't been out very long but we have played this game twice a week every week for the last month or so.

This game gets totally mixed reviews in my game groups. Two of the people I thought would love this game, hate it and two people I thought would hate it, love it. I think trying to figure out how many cars you can sell and then producing them is great. I love the way you get hurt by either producing too many or not enough.

I love this game! I like how you can either place or pickup your workers. Key spots on the main board can go turns being blocked up. I love being able to buy your own buildings and use them. I have recently received the expansion for this game and am looking forward to playing it with them.
