What game gets played more than any other game you own? I dont want to know your favorite game. I want to know which game actually gets put on the table and played the most.

Edit: Apps do not count. It has to be the physical version of the game.

This is by far the most requested and most played game in my collection. My copy has seen over 100 plays (all wins recorded on the box top). Runner up for me is Splendor.

Unsurprisingly for someone whose primary playing partner is also the person they're romantically involved with, the game that gets played most in my house is Patchwork. Great couples game.

Runner up is Carc because the oldest offspring can now grok it.

OK, this is with the caveat that I only started recording my plays this year. blush
However, it is a good indicator of which of my horde of new Christmas games I like best.

With over 1000 recorded plays; and probably 5x that (Yes, Literally) played before I recorded games, Magic is by far my most played game.

It helps that it usually plays quickly, I play it often and it is the only game I ever play competitively.

If we were talking about hours played Dungeons and Dragons would probably beat it.

I'm past 600 and on my way to 700 plays of this wonderful game. The variation in the card draws and the many ways you can assemble a winning plan make it endlessly enjoyable for me.

Recorded- Dominion. It helps that multiple games are played per session

Unrecorded- easily Magic: The Gathering. 5 years spent playing most weekends, many conventions (& all-nighters), decktesting for events, drafting with a box as it more interesting to open that way, teaching the game....
I've just been trying to work out a rough estimate- 10,000 might be close, if close is -2,000/+6,000

Of course I own my share of playing card packs, but I also own a nice leather card pouch with Gin scorepad from circa 1950 (give or take). While I’ve only used that a couple dozen times, I’ve played Gin literally hundreds of times and perhaps nearing four digits. It’s a near perfect card game and even now I still feel delicious tension in every hand.

I left off games like Magic: The Gathering, that I played before the days of BGG and thus don't have recorded on my profile. I also left off games (like Coup) that only take 5-10 minutes per play, since that's how I record them.

That said, my most-played game is also my favorite. I've recorded 58 plays but I know I've missed a few here and there. I'd guess I've got 65-70 plays of it in as of this writing. It would be more by this point but my regular game buddies have been dispersed for the past year or two and I haven't gotten it back to the table.

This is the most played and most taught game. We use this game to introduce our non gamer friends to our hobby. It is just so easy and fast to teach and everybody has liked it, sometimes even bought it.

I bought this pre-order and FREEEKED out (my first "over $50" game). First it was the game itself. Then we started to analyze each animal. Then a few months of the domination cards...

100s of times over the years...

We never get enough-this game is very much like chess to me. Once you "know all the moves" you are just beginning.

The other half of the story is that this play s up to 6 and sometimes on the game night I go to-when stragglers start to bump up the game count of the last game...once it goes past 4 we start to ask if anyone is up for yet another game of...

Not my fave (Agricola is) but by far my most played.

I am at around 570 plays for this beauty. Going to add to that tonight.
About half of the plays were solo, about a dozen 3-4 player sessions and the rest 2-player.

It is my favorite and most played game. It is IMHO the best implementation of a cooperative game. The hidden information (card hand) gets around the alpha player problem. To this day, the designers keep exploring new design space. Expansions are rarely more of the same. There are still new mechanics being added to the game, but I never felt overwhelmed.
Granted, getting into the game nowadays might seem daunting, because there is so much content. Take it slow, and don't tackle everything at once. Try to follow the original release cycle. You can easily go one cycle (1 big expansion + 6 smaller expansions) at a time.

17. Board Game: Carcassonne: Over Hill and Dale [Average Rating:7.39 Overall Rank:2209]

The easy answer is a generic "Carcassonne". We've owned several different versions and have enjoyed playing most them many times.

Overall, Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers has seen the most play, and our copy is on the verge of wearing out. This is probably my favorite "flavor" of Carcassonne, although I have yet to play a few of the newer releases.
But Over Hill and Dale is our most recently acquired version, and is currently in heavy rotation with my children. Over the past month, I'm sure this has been played at least 30 times.

Carcassonne isn't my personal favorite game but it's visually appealing, wonderfully playable, inexpensive, and easy to explain. It also happens to be one of the first 3 games I ever purchased on my own. Years later it remains a true classic - and a game that I'm always happy to bring to the table.

Hive is our most played, since we started tracking 4.5 years ago. It helps that play time is quick, and each match gets recorded individually (not best out of 3, or something like that).

The rest of our top five most played are:
Star Realms
Ticket to Ride: Europe (with 2 expansion map sets)
Splendor
King of Tokyo
