This is the second year I tracked my plays on BGG. I'm happy to say I was able to play 538 games in 2017 (I always hope to average one a day, but I was able to top that by quite a bit). I played 118 different games, ranging from 1 to 37 plays each.

This geeklist contains my top 10 most played games of 2017. To make my top 10 a game had to be played at least 12 times. There was a 3-way tie for 10th (i.e., all 3 of these games were played 12 times each), which is why there re 12 games on the list. Also, I combined similar re-themed games whenever possible (So, for example, Love Letter, Love Letter: Batman, Love Letter: The Hobbit – The Battle of the Five Armies, Lovecraft Letter, Archer: Once You Go Blackmail..., and Loot Letter were all counted as one game... same for Star Fluxx and Batman Fluxx). And, I also combined all plays with expansions as the same game (so Arcadia Quest, Arcadia Quest: The Nameless Campaign, Arcadia Quest: Pets, Arcadia Quest: Frost Dragon, Arcadia Quest: Fire Dragon, and Arcadia Quest: Chaos Dragon were all counted as the same game).

With this in mind, here is the list.

37 plays. Just discovered this one over the summer, or I'm sure I would have played it even more. Fun and easy to learn. One of our main go-to filler games.

31 plays (18 Batman Fluxx + 13 Star Fluxx). Not the best game, I know. But we get a kick out of it, and you can usually play lots of games in a short time. So, it's become common filler for us.

23 plays. Good game, but it's collectable and there is just too much to buy for my taste. So, I sold just about all my stuff except the starters and a few dice/cards I really like. It was also on my top 10 list last year, but I doubt it will see much play in the future. I enjoyed it for a while and am happy to have some things to play if the mood strikes me in the future.

19 plays. Also on my list last year, and remains one of my top 10 favorite games of all time. We always have a blast when we play this one. Includes sessions with regular Arcadia Quest, Arcadia Quest: The Nameless Campaign, Arcadia Quest: Pets, Arcadia Quest: Frost Dragon, Arcadia Quest: Fire Dragon, and Arcadia Quest: Chaos Dragon.

18 plays. Great two-player game. Most were with just the base game, but a few games included the 7 Wonders Duel: Pantheon expansion). Also on the list last year, but I tippled my number of plays this year. Always happy to play this one whenever I can.

17 plays. Very fun two player game. I find it addictive, and cannot find enough people to play or it would have been ranked even higher.

13 plays. I like Eric Lang games, so I decided to give this one a try. Played it with several people, and would say we liked but did not love it. I'm sure it will see more plays, but I'll be surprised if it makes the list next year.

13 plays. Also on my list last year, but about 5 fewer plays this year. All games included Blood Rage: Mystics of Midgard expansion and Blood Rage: Kickstarter Exclusives monsters). I would play this one every day if I could find folks who also liked it as much as I do. Alas, most of the people I play with like variety, and I'm grateful I at least got 13 games in this year.

13 plays. Also one of our go-to filler games with my Tuesday group.

I prefer Munchkin Loot Letter to the regular Love Letter (theme and cards are more interesting/humorous to me).

I also very much like most of the variations, and would probably rank order them as follows:

Loot Letter/Love Letter
Love Letter: The Hobbit – The Battle of the Five Armies -- Has some funny combos that made us laugh, like when you have both of the 3s (which are different in this game).
Archer: Once You Go Blackmail... -- Ditto.
Love Letter: Batman -- Some new mechanics, but not quite as interesting as the other two
Lovecraft Letter -- The only one I would say I didn't like, so I sold it at one of my LGSs "gamer's garage sale."

12 plays. Played this game quite a bit when it first came out, and would say it is very good but not great. I'll definitely play again when the opportunity presents itself, but will probably chose Blood Rage when it is my choice. With Rising Sun coming out in 2018, I expect this one will see even less play.

12 plays. Not one of my favorite games even though it made this top 10 list. But, my Tuesday group likes it, and we have had a good time playing it this year.

12 plays. I love this game (probably not in my top 10 favorite of all time, but it's up there). I very much liked the Terraforming Mars: Hellas & Elysium expansion as it added two new maps with some interesting new strategies. Have played just one game using the Terraforming Mars: Venus Next expansion... so the jury is still out on that one.
