Included are only games played thrice or more often.
That doesn't seem like much. But since reading rules and learning new games is actually one of the enjoyable aspects of this hobby for me (ok, and buying games, I admit it). I do not play my games nearly as often as I should.

My tastes fluctuate between the medium-light and the heavy. But this list, due to the aforementioned limitations, is slightly skewed towards the lighter games and contains a lot of family games, especially in the bottom half of the list. Whilst, for practical reasons (family, work, sleep), I prefer my games to finish within three hours at max, I will make an exception here and there.

EDIT: Turns out counting is not my strong suit and I have two #44's. So it's a top 101 then, no damage done.

I like the game for several reasons. It presents an interesting mix of things. It combines carcassonnish tile laying with various bidding phases and instead of just aiming to have the country with the greatest industry output or wads of cash you're also keeping in mind the quality of life.
But I'm not sure if it didn't age well or simply never was that great to begin with. I'm a bit torn one this one.

I think this is the only pure no luck abstract on the list, even if it is sheep themed. I'm not that much for abstracts, but this has just the right length and weight and scales well from 2 to 4 players. Good family fun.

(English second edition, 6 plays, rating: 7)

This is a really unique game in that every player plays a very different game. Great idea, but in a way it's not. The problem is that you have to teach every player separately and new players can't learn by watching what the others do. So new players, although understanding the rules, may feel at a loss about what would be a good thing to do for some time. It is not a complicated game by any stretch, the complexity comes with the interactions of the roles and their different goals.
I haven't played this with a full set of grownup gamers yet, but it is a fun family game.

This game had to make space for the cult of the new. It is a good though pretty light worker placement game and the Provost adds some uniqueness. Although I was pretty smitten in the beginning I think it would have gotten samey with repeat plays. Works great with two players.

I mostly play this game with the children as my spouse isn't very fond of it. After about 2 plays they had a pretty firm grasp of the decisions available and how to use the cards in an advantageous way. They really enjoy seeing who gets cheese or just gets eaten when things finally get revealed. Lot's of excitement for the kids in particular.

I got this as a birthday gift for the little one at last years Essen auction and she got the expansion for Christmas. It's a bit of a commitment to play as we have to translate the story snippets into Icelandic on the fly.
She says this year she wants a cat for the game. She'll get Poseidon's Kingdom instead, let's hope it's not too complicated.

This game used to replace the more common social deduction games for me because it has some more board gamey elements to it. I sadly decided to sell it because I rarely get a big enough group together. If memory serves well it really needs at least 6 players in a silly mood to shine.

For a dexterity game this game has a interesting amount of decisions. You may want to think about what pieces you want to end up as load bearing pillars instead of just going in blindly.

I happened upon this game on last year's Essen fair. It wasn't even on my mental shopping list as I had no clue that it still existed.
Recently the app was released on my game console of choice and it turned out the way I interpreted the rules I played the game wrongly. Now suddenly things made more sense.
One weakness of the game may be that if you deal yourself a bad starting hand the game can end really fast.

In this game it is not as much what you roll and more about how you place your dice that determines your and your opponent's fortune. I like the dice version better than the original game actually. One of my favourite fast fillers.

YES!!!
Mission complete!


(English first edition, 6 plays, rating: a temporary 7)

I don't know if there is a future for this game in my collection and on this list. I enjoyed playing it solo. The game didn't work at all for Nína. The good core design is currently overshadowed by problems like:

- having to check forums constantly, with new questions arising every time you start a new mission.
- incomplete or badly designed app.
- lazy and unimaginative writing: are there any events that can't be summarized with "Something breaks/explodes/deteriorates. Loose resource x/y/z, gain a wound"?

Since half of the game is digital those things could be fixed in form of updates, we'll see how it goes.

Oh, and the game really should be called Last Martians. There is no sense of building up and progression at all. It is all about surviving as long as the round limit is and then dying a slow painful death with one more checkbox ticked on your achievement sheet.

To summarize: I like it solo, will maybe like it better if improvements come. Do I need another huge, long, unwieldy solo game? Not at the moment.

Thematically this game reminds me in the old PC game "Constructor" that let's do things like sending hippies to the other player's council to make the neighbour's life miserable. This game has quite a bit of the same type of screwage. (Oh, did your building accidentally get demolished, oopsie.)
There are a lot of card interactions to keep track of, so the entry level is pretty high for a card game of its size.

Another family favourite that can also be played as a filler with gamers. When played with grown ups it can develop a bit of a different dynamic though adding some "take that" to the mix, whilst with kids it plays more like a cooperative stacking game.

This is technically not a board game, maybe that is why it landed pretty low on the list compared to the rating I gave it, I don't know.
We play this as a cozy evening event for two. I like to get immersed into the story and find out as much as possible instead of scoring high by solving in as little steps as possible. We finished the two first non-Jack cases so far. Looking forward to more.

My favourite version currently is Amazon. Our most played by far is Kids of Carcassonne.

Vanilla Carcassonne is probably what got me into gaming. A work mate at my first real job used to bring this to our lunch break and thought that wimpy looking kid over there might be interested. So we played a lot when the others were enjoying each others' attention whilst pumping iron.
I don't think I'd still be playing a lot of Carcassonne if my younger child wasn't so much of a gamer herself.

This is one of Nína's (spouse) favourite games, my guess would be second favourite. (EDIT: It isn't, top 20 tops.) I don't like it just as much, as I prefer my games to give me something to ponder. Playing with all the expansions lumped together though gives you always something new to discover, so that's nice too.
Enjoying the television show is surely a good reason to play this game, but it works just as well without prior knowledge, if you just introduce it as "space western, we're the outlaws, but the nice kind, except for when we're not".

This is one of my younger daughter's (6) favourite games, luckily I enjoy it too. The rest of the family doesn't however, so we always play 2 players with two boats each.
The game has aged pretty well and I could well imagine plopping it on the table for a group preferring lighter fare.

In a way it feels a bit silly to have this game in a top 100. In another way this unassuming little card game has a steady spot in our family game rotation and likely won't fall out of favour any time soon. It works really well with children as soon as your kids can handle semi-basic reading of numbers and adding.
The font on the cards is a bit problematic for young children and possibly people struggling with dyslexia, because the 2's and 5's are extremely similar mirrored versions of each other.
