Recently a podcaster mentioned he enjoyed playing other people's favorite games with them. This sounds like a neat experience and I'm going to do this for 2017. I'll start with locals in my playgroup but will extend that to faraway friends at conventions and may even open it up to online plays to pseudo-strangers (maybe).

Feel free to comment on your entry to tell me why this game is your favorite.

Progress as of 2017-12-02: 14 / 21 = 67% (3 from 2016)

Terry claimed a close second to Jonathan's win. Terry had a fairly full farm with the best animal spread on the table. None of us were very experienced at the 5-player game, and many at the table had never drafted before.

Terry estimates he's played around 70 times and enjoys the tight tension of the game.

I think that the thing that draws me most to Agricola is the replayability. There's something about the huge variation in the improvements/occupations, the way all of those cards can interact with each other in different ways, player count differences, expansions, etc that just make it a completely different experience every single time. I don't think there are many games that hold my interest like it does for those reasons.

Kris barely eked out a win, beating Terry by a single point! Jonathan and I were about 20 points behind.

Kris likes this game for its many paths to victory. He likes to pick a completely different strategy each time he plays.

Dan didn't want to choose a favorite game but when backed into a corner and admitting he's played hundreds of times online, this was it.
