I took all the games that I rate a 10, and all the people that rated those games a 10 as well, and looked at all the games that at least 25 of those people rated 9-10, then narrowed it down to games that were on at least 5 (out of 6) of the games I rated a 10's list, sans games I already own. And here are the games I should apparently love.

I've only played this game once, and it was late at night. I came in dead last, as I wasn't aware of any of the later strategies in the game until it was too late. Seemed like a pretty good game, and I would like to try it again. Seems like it was the best thing since Puerto Rico, then lost alot of steam and kinda has a black cloud hovering around it now. I'll still try it out again though.

I owned this game a few years ago, and decided to trade it away for something more friendly. My core group at the time wasn't very fond of it, so I traded it away for Camelot Legends and Starship Catan. I disliked Starship Catan much more than I disliked T&E. Seems like a horrible trade now that I think about it.

Have yet to try this one, even though I really like Area Influence games, and it's been played at my game groups for a while now. Not sure why I always avoid playing it. I think it might be the theme. Sigh.

This is another one that I used to own but traded away. I didn't think there was enough turns to really form a strategy, and that the auctions were pretty boring. But the more I think about it, the more I want to play it again. The current RGG version is the one I would want, not that hideous looking new one thats coming out!

Recently played this for the first time a few weeks ago. I liked the way the tiles came out, and how scoring was done, but wasn't a huge fan of the way money worked. I think with more plays this one could become a favorite of mine. Apparently, its really good with three players.

I've never played this game before, and is another game I am kind of avoiding it because of its theme and components. I think. I actually don't know too much about it, and will probably play it sometime this week.

I have played this game before, and will buy it as soon as it is available again. I waited forever for the second reprint of this, then when it came out again, I didn't pick it up. So I need to make sure I get it first chance I get. Great game.

I've only got one game of this under my belt from when I used to own it. I got offered a really good deal on a trade for it, and couldn't refuse. I thought everything about the game was top notch, and am dissapointed to hear the reprint's components weren't up to par with modern Euro's. Sigh, I'll still get it though.

I only played this game once and it didn't really jump out at me. I like the Card Game version, and need to try this game again.

I am looking forward to the reprint of this game, which shoud hopefully be out soon. I am a big fan of CDG's, and this is a Political Influence game to boot! Should be pretty sweet!

Not sure this is the kind of game I am....going to buy. I like Blue Moon much more than this, and it was a bunch of cool expansions for it. Lost Cities seems kind of static and boring in comparison. Not saying Lost Cities is not strategic, just not very lively. But, I guess I'll have to give it another chance now.

The one time I was able to play this game I enjoyed it immensely. I am on the fence with this one now because of C&C:A. One the one hand is the more complex and strategic game with nice wooden blocks. On the other hand, you have the girlfriend-friendly, plastic army men game with the easy newbie friendly rules. I just dont know!
