Users can vote for the weight of games here on board game geek. The rankings are named:

1. Light
2. Medium light
3. Medium
4. Medium heavy
5. Heavy


In the algorithm I have used to search for games in these categories I have generalized this to the following:

1.0 - 1.5 Light
1.5 - 2.5 Medium light
2.5 - 3.5 Medium
3.5 - 4.5 Medium heavy
4.5 - 5.0 Heavy


I have scanned the rankings of the Geek for the top 25 ranked games of each category. You can find the other categories here:
