"There are gamers who only focus in two or three games and play them a lot, other people who play a lot of different games only once or twice, and then there are those gamers who play lots of different games many and many times."

That's the opening line from the following topic:
http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/953084/whats-your-h-index/

I thought this would be an interesting topic for a geeklist each January, to see which games enter or drop out of my list, and if the order changes.

I'll also include the one[s] that just miss out.

This one is at the top because it's a game my girlfriend likes to play with me, and have also played at conventions when it was new. Any group I've played with have liked it too.
It's just generally in high demand with my friends.

A game set "in the same universe", this one really is more my type.
The only reason it's lower is because of the higher minimum players & game length.
When our group used to meet up for D&D, we'd usually have time for a board game or two as well. This was my default request!

For the most part we'd play with the same people, and got a bit samey-samey. But even one new person [or replacement] could completely shake up the whole thing!

My first Ticket to Ride game. I now prefer Nordic Countries, but still enjoy playing this occasionally.

I may have played this more than 20 times, because I played this one as a child and had to have a stab at the play count.
That's right...this was probably my first "hobby game" and definitely my first Euro, and I loved it!

Might have to look into getting a copy again

Another game I grew up on. Probably wouldn't play it again, but some later versions have some interesting enough concepts in.
Will probably be one of the first to fall next year.

I mentioned before that we played board games after my D&D sessions. This was the very first one, and you can tell why.
After a while the players started to say it went on too long.
I'd still be willing to play it, provided we had a time limit so everyone could be happy.
I probably prefer Apocalypse overall though.

I love this game so much, especially with all the expansions [I also own Princess & Dragon].
I mostly play this with my parents, and actually ended up with burnout on this game!
Played it once since.
Will have to give it another go soon.

Another game that got played at my D&D group, because we could break it out when we needed a break.
Easy to throw into a bag of games due to its size.

Will probably drop as I now prefer to have just a little extra going on with my push-your-luck games, for example Bang! The Dice Game

Another game that can pad out a bag. As my girlfriend likes this, it often ended up going with us to cons etc, along with Coup, Love Letter etc.

I had only borrowed it though, and don't think I'll end up buying it, so it may be doomed to stay at 15 for quite some time.

I once [again as a child] played a 6-player game that went on for 2 whole weekends! :O
Never again. I now have other games I'd like to play.

However, Risk Legacy is calling to me. I may have to give in to it

Another game I borrowed, but do not own.
I may have to amend that at some point

So good to see how everybody can interpret each card differently.

I first played this at a con, where I didn't get to experience it properly due to suffering from Con Sickness [yes, I know, I wasn't helping by playing, but I can't fix that now!]

I got re-introduced to it at my local games club, and fell in love with it there and then!

I have a feeling I haven't accounted for every unique round of this, so it should probably be higher.

I love this game! The different set-ups you can have, the paranoia, the meta-gaming, the betrayals, the laughs!

I prefer this to Europe. Really makes you consider every move. Being the first person to place a track can mean so much in this game!
Will likely rise through the ranks in the next year.

I actually have three games that JUST missed out, with 10 plays each.

This, Small World and Telestrations.

Telestrations will undoubtedly rise, as I get such good times from it, and I already have a group asking to play it next time I see them.
