I haven't played as many games as many of the reviewers or many users. But, I like to rank my games - so this list will be a simple top 10 of the games I've played and the reasons why.

I plan on revisiting my top 10 each year. It should be fun to see how my tastes change (or don't).

Honorable Mention


This didn't make my list because I've only played it once. But, I can see this easily punching its way up to the top. It has everything I could want in a game.

Wow. This game is fun. I like the dice rolling aspect to this otherwise fairly simple worker placement. Also, the artwork really does it for me.

My wife loves this game. So do I. We can agree to play it all the time. Every time I've introduced this game to new people, it has gone over well. And every time I've played it, I've had fun.

One of my very first purchases. Boy am I glad I bought it. While the iconography may have been somewhat overwhelming at first (then I played Race for the Galaxy...), I think the simple gameplay and low no down time really makes me enjoy it.

Probably the most underrated game on my list, 7 Ronin has become a staple for us. I love the "maybe she'll put her guys here and here. Wait, she'll be expecting me to think that, so she'll up them there instead." It's great fun and pretty quick.

Easily the lightest game on this list. That doesn't mean that it isn't any fun. This has the same sort of feel as 7 Ronin (guessing and second guessing), but I absolutely adore the theme. Putting together teams/lineups is so much fun.

A great "family dungeon crawler". My nephew asks to play this every time I see him. Every. Time. I love it though. The theme is fun. Are the characters/abilities generic fantasy? Sure (besides the mice!), but that doesn't stop the laughs and enjoyment.

The most colorful of the games on the list. I love getting to play this with people who are fans of Risk. They walk away from this saying, "where can I get that game!?" I don't know how else to explain why I love this colorful & tactical combat game.


Edit: Because I noted that I love Nexus because of how colorful it is, I should also note that I own the Avalon Hill version.

When I want to lie, I play this game. The reason I love this game (and probably the reason why many dislike it) is the fact that you are looking out for you and yours first via secret goals. Sure, you need to make sure that the colony succeeds, but I need to make sure that my little tight-knit group has enough food and medicine to make it through the winter. Or maybe, I'm just a lying sociopath...

While the game can take a while to play, I think the theme is PERFECT for a pick up and deliver game. I know I'm biased because of my love for the show. You know what? I don't care. I have fun playing it.

Maybe I'm just a sheep and put it #1 because it's #1 on BGG. Or maybe playing PL:S1 has been the most satisfying and entertaining EXPERIENCES in my (admittedly, fairly short) time playing table top games.
