What are today's most "up and coming" games?

This list analyzes the games that are just coming into the scene and looks for games that are rapidly growing in popularity.

A game will make this list if:
a) enough games have been purchased to make it somewhat popular (i.e. over 50)
b) the number of owners in the last month has grown dramatically vs. how many have already purchased it

In other words, I ratio the number of new owners to the number of current owners and rank them accordingly.

Disclaimer:
-I have set up a system to look at a lot of games. However, I cannot guarantee that I have all of the most purchased games. If you see something that you think I missed, please let me know and I can add it in future months. Please pass along any suggestions of any kind to me, either through geekmail or through comments.

Also, I have chosen not to display all of the math and the resulting values, but rather just the rank of each item. Let me know if you like / dislike this.
