As the title says this is my most played games of 2013, some surprises, some opinions, maybe even some facts.

This is the top 10 played games, with a whole host of nearly rans nipping at the heels of these.

12 plays for this dice rolling game. I have a lot of love for it as it has something that some others lack - interaction. You can directly and maliciously steal other players worms (vps) if you roll correctly. Of course rolling correctly is what is is about, just try to remember to roll some worms though!

Nipping close behind Pickomino with 11 plays is another dice roller. This time its all about the choices you get, go for damage or go for health? Start powering up or gaining VPs? Add in special cards and even a few Power Up! cards and this game changes every time you play it.

10 plays for this, all with my wife and the majority on a family holiday. A very good game which adds in layers of options as you swap around the sets. It is a game to enjoy rather than rush through and I need to try the most recent expansion. Would also be good to try the drafting version where each player chooses the cards for their decks. Maybe one day.

Another 10 plays for this one, although it hasn't seen the table for some time. Its a fun and interesting game but there is a conflict between style and game play. It looks like it is as fun and easy as King of Tokyo but its more like a CCG - lots of cards to read and various places that can score as you play. I have pimped my set with vp counter sheets but it still plays slower than I like, perhaps one to go?

7 plays for this, and each one good. Love the way it works with all numbers of players, and the ease at which the expansions work. I need to get this one on the table again.

4 plays for this, although must also include The Horned Rat as that was used every time. A great game especially if you add in the expert level Old World cards. Another game that changes every time you play it, and I think I have now managed to win with each of the Chaos Powers. Must try those Rats more.

A seemingly small and simple game, once you get past the rules that is. However trying to balance your hand of cards while not picking up too many cards is difficult. Unless of course you want the majority of a colour as then the cards count as 1 vp each rather than their numerical value. Will hit the table again soon.

Another 4 play game. This one also changes from game to game as the cards and the combos come up. Often overlooked though as too long for filler and not quite enough to it for the usual games night game. Hoping that going to five will make break the table more often.

The oldest game on the list, but it still managed 4 plays. I think its a lot of fun with some car customisation, some high speed driving and a lot of shooting and explosions. I have had to house rule the damage rules but it works really well.

3 plays for this including a couple of run outs for the expansion. A lot of fun not least of which is stirring up old rivalries between players. The expansion is good, but the Contract Payments are difficult to work with as they remain such an unknown element until the end of the game. I am sure we will play more.
