Amyandpeteb created the original "Up and Comers" monthly geeklist but unfortunately had to stop updating it in March 2016. This was one of my favorite monthly geeklists, so I want to try to bring it back!

On the first of every month, I pull in data on every game on BGG into a MySQL database. Some of the data I pull includes the number of owners, weight, and rank. You can read more about how I do this and what is in the database here (note: the schema there isn't completely up to date).

What is an "Up and Comer"?
An "up and comer" is a game that has a drastic change in ownership over the last month, which could indicate that it is becoming pretty popular.

How are these values calculated?
For every game on BGG, I calculate the difference in ownership over the last month and divide by the ownership of the previous month. In other words:

Hotness ratio = (This Month's Ownership - Last Month's Ownership) / Last Month's Ownership

I only include games that had at least 50 games last month and I exclude expansions.

Want to be notified when next month's list is out? Subscribe here.

If you have any suggestions on making this geeklist better, let me know!

If you like this geeklist, you might be interested in others that I maintain:
