This list collates the results of the Card Games Tournament I have been running.

The first round had 76 games that I included, plus another 30 games that were added by other users, a total of 106 card games.

I have combined the results of all the rounds by weighting the rounds on the basis of number of thumbsup and then worked out an overall score for each game over the course of the whole competition. Where appropriate I've added in comments that were added to the game entries as the tournament went on - unfortunately these are uncredited.
I've also added a comment for each game from someone who rates the game highly, I tried to pick the most informative comment for each game!

I think it is worth producing this summary as the definitive card games geeklist (for now).

The original rounds can be seen here:

Round 1 (106 Entrants):

Round 5 (Semi Final, The Top 6):

Round 6 (The Final):

My list is the top 100, but I've allowed public additions to the list in case you think something has been unfairly missed.
