Thanks to Ithkrall for the idea, albeit he has a larger (and probably more interesting) collection.

Quote:
This is an ongoing list of my collection, rated from bottom to top in how much I want to play them, to be updated on an ongoing basis.

The majority of this is about how much I want to play the game and how likely it is to get on my table, more than how good the game is. That said, I normally don't want to play a game that isn't very good.


If a game hit 50-41, I've either never played it or didn't like it. Games from 40-31 are decent but have some big flaws (or group really didn't like them). Games from 30-21 are good games, but not amazing games. Games from 20-11 are very good games that will probably not leave my collection. And finally, my top ten is pretty evergreen. There are a couple games that have dropped several rankings because I'm sick of them, but in general I don't see my top ten changing that hugely.

Random luckfest. My wife is good at it though, so we play it sometimes -- would be lower otherwise.

Bought for the nostalgia. Haven't played it since buying it, though of course I did growing up. Dropped only because other games have gone up.

Twixt has more depth, and Palago is quicker. I found Blokus too chaotic with 4-players, anyhow -- will be trading or dumping soon.

I used to like it a lot, but it's far too fiddley in setup, and Deep Sea Adventure and Vye both do it a lot better. If anyone wanted it, I'd trade it away.

Fun concept, has gone over well with friends, but Dixit has way more longevity and I'm "meh" on party games in general.

I've found many other solo games that I enjoy a lot more, so why keep this one? The tons of shuffling always bugged me, but the puzzle is interesting. Has been replaced by Shooting Party, Black Sonata, Agent Decker, and Snooker Solitaire.

I got a play in, and the mechanics look interesting, but it was a bad time. The explanation was in a busy room with lots of chatting, one player dropped out during rules, one player dropped out mid-game, one player jumped in mid-game. Yikes. I still think this one can climb, though, I enjoyed the basic ideas.

A fun simultaneous action selection game. Would like to try with the bundled 'expansions' as I suspect that's how the original game was designed. Think this one could still rise.

One of the best social large-group games I've found -- I just usually dislike social, large-group games. Need to keep this one, though -- it fills a niche in my collection.

A real-time dice chucker and dexterity game. I don't have many of these, so this one is interesting, but I don't know if it will really hold our interest long-term. Need to break it out at game night.

Micropul is fine...I'd just rather play Carcassonne. Need to discover the nuance there but I don't know if I'll get the chance.

I definitely prefer Ascension-style to Dominion-style, and this game adds a lot of cool things like transforming heroes, dual-faction heroes, and new artwork. We've really enjoyed it thus far.

How the mighty have fallen. This used to be a perfect-10 game for me, but my tastes have shifted and I just can't get this one played. There are others I'd rather play, I guess.

Mechanically very elegant -- thematically very dead. As I grasp the strategy I think it could rise. While I don't think I'd ever get rid of it, it may also never be a favorite.

A true classic. This one is so tense with a lot of hidden information. Evergreen for me, but of course it never gets played because it looks awful.

Quick-playing abstract with 48 identical tiles? This is the definition of elegance and the fastest game to play that I own. My wife and I take this one to coffeeshops all the time. Great fun!

This is quite high for a social-deduction game...but Mafia De Cuba is that fun. There's more information floating around than there is in most other guessing games, and the discussions at the table are a riot. A few small balance issues, but a fun game nevertheless!

This is a fun filler and the dice can sometimes add a lot of drama. We just don't play it as much as we used to.
