10x10 Challenge 2015: The Most Selected Games
- Emile de Maat(Purple)Netherlands
Purple's 2015 10x10 Hardcore Challenge).
On Sunday, I browsed the different challenge lists on 2015 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each again. I started wondering: what games would appear the most? The new ones, that people hadn't played a lot? The old ones, that were in need of some renewed attention? Short games? Solo games? I decided to find out. As the lists are formatted in different ways, it seemed hard to automated that task, so I started counting by hand. I didn't know that I had picked up a challenge more difficult than the 10x10!
This morning, the number of lists had grown a lot, an each hour, more were added. It became clear that finishing this task would take more time than I was willing to spend on it. So, I turned to the computer, and set out to automate the counting, accepting the fact that the result would not be perfect.
This list is the result of that exercise. It lists the games that I have found in
2530 or more of the GeekList items on 2015 Challenge: Play 10 Games 10 Times Each. As said, the count will not be exact. I'm searching for links created with [thing] formatting, as well as for various game names. If someone uses an abbreviated game name, there is a good chance that I won't find it. If someone mentions in his list that he played Dominion last year, my little program will see "Dominion" and think it's on the list for this year. I've not taken families into account, or expansions. But even with all those deviations, these should be the most popular games.
Behind each is a link to a Challenge List that should include the relevant game. Feel free to GeekMail me if you see something that is really silly, and I may attempt to improve the results.
This GeekList is based on the main challenge list as it was on January 5th, 23:00 CET. I'll update this list later this week.
