I read in another GeekList about the pubmeeple.com board game ranking engine and I wanted directly to try it out. In my top 25, there are only 2 games I don't own. So I think these 2 will be my next buys. In fact, they are already in my Amazon basket

While using the ranking engine I decided on how much I personally like the game, how often I could play them and with whom.

I realized that my gaming changed in the last few month because I love playing with my girlfriend. She likes casual and family-friendly games (for now) but I am slightly increasing the complexity. We are also infecting her friends with board games, which leads to more casual games. I liked these games before, but heavier games are going down in the ranking (theoretically, this is my first top list) because I moved 300 miles away from my old gaming group.

I played the first edition when the Kickstarter for war eternal started and I really liked it. Because of my addictive play of Magic the gathering as a kid, I still enjoy deck builder. I found the mechanics in Aeon's end interesting, especially that you don't shuffle your discard pile.

I am a sucker for artwork and I like all the cards, and that you can see the characters on the different spells or relics. Also, the flavour text is nice. And they developed their own universe which I like. Not the same old fantasy stuff or so.

This is one of my first Kickstarter and I bought everything for it. So far I played it only solo and never won :/

This is more of an activity than an actual game. These kind of games are great if playing with non-gamers.

One of the games from this list which I don't own, but I knew a bunch of couples we could play this one with.

Dexterity games are always fun for me. Go go gelato is my #26.

The artwork on the cards are cute and the quality of the components is great. We build some large towers with my niece in law. It is always exciting if the rhino has to climb up and everybody is cheering if the tower is already a bit wonky but the rhino makes it to the top.

I knew I would like this one. There are several of these real-time pattern recognition games in my collection. I tend to be bad at these but I still have a really good time.

The artwork on this so cute. And the broken weapons make it very easy to make a false pick. Just the quality of the cards is not so good. But it is the same with The pursuit of happiness so it seems to be a problem with Artapia games. Or they want to sell their sleeves for their non-standard sized cards.

I like the puzzle style of this game and the decision which cards you play. It is still an easy game but it plays quickly, it looks nice and my girlfriend enjoys it too.

I still need to play the original Karuba game. I think I might enjoy that.

In my old gaming group definitely in my top 3. It dropped a lot because I don't know with whom I could play it now. Non-gamers tend to enjoy this one because it's just theme. Most of the scenarios are broken, barely any decisions and just some dice chucking. But I always feel like I'm moving through this haunted house and all the creepy stuff is happening to me while playing. But you need the right setting for this game. At a local store with 3 or more tables at the same time, this game is really bad.

I checked this one out because it seemed to be a nice 2 player deduction game. Again, this one plays fast, is thinky enough and looks amazing. I like how the pictures on the cards tell the story of the chase. Sadly my girlfriend didn't enjoy it as much as I did. If she would, this would have been much higher on my list.

The other game I don't own yet. I just enjoy the silly dice rolling of this one. How you try to hit the target and you have to do all the different and weird ways of rolling your die. Hilarious!

I think I could introduce my girlfriend with this one to the more geeky themed games.

Another real-time pattern recognition game. Always played this one with some kids (between 9 and 12 so far) and I don't have any chance against them. The fruits look good on the cards, there are two kinds of each colour so it is quite hard to differentiate. I don't know why the cards are triangular, but the quality is fine, so what.

And again, pattern recognition. Here you have to attack and defend yourself depending on the card the active player reveals. The box says you could play it up to 8 players. I don't think so. To attack the other players they have to sit not too far away. Especially for kids, this could become a problem.

Played the second edition two times at a friend and I preordered the third edition right after the announcement. The Artwork, the theme, I love it. Just the quality of the minis is not so good. But they are fine when painted. I also like the improvements between second and third edition, especially the round structure. But the two rulebooks are a bit confusing when looking something up.

It would be higher rated if it wouldn't be so hard to get to the table.

A really nice asymmetrical 2 player game. I like the tension when playing your card, the game has a nice look. The minis are still waiting for some paint. So I can't tell anything about the quality of them for now. I will have a closer look at them shortly before painting because if the quality is not that good, it will last forever till they got painted.

I think my girlfriend would like this one. We just didn't have the time to play it together.

As a student, I played it several times per week, but still my favourite deckbuilder. I like how fast it is played and the huge variety. I think I own the first 4 expansions. I don't know exactly, there are so many out there.

My girlfriend also enjoyed this one but the deckbuilding mechanic was not so intuitive for her but we will play it again. Also, this is the gateway game for my parents to introduce them to the hobby. In the meantime, they own a couple games themselves and are joining a local gaming group.

Another activity, I still don't get the scoring system explained in the rulebook but we never mind. Played this on housewarming parties, birthday parties, kids, gamers, non-gamers, everybody enjoyed it. With some students, who never played any games except monopoly as a kid, we played for 4 hours. We laughed the whole time. Just great. And the components are awesome. The pencils write really good but the books are easy to clean with the included towels.

The only con I see is the variety of the items. Some are way to easy and others are un-drawable. But most of them are good and the un-drawable ones causes lots of laughter. So not that big of a con.

This game is full of theme and an amazing look. I like exploration in general, but here you have some kind of automated exploration. Not the best style of doing so, but I like the overwhelming undead, the exploiting ship parts, fire everywhere and you are just some greedy pirates. It is a quite tough co-op game, most of the time we just died in the burning wreck. I enjoy it solo too.

I'm very excited about the expansion, making the ship even more deadly. And the minis look so nice. Looking forward to paint them.

I thought this would be higher, but I didn't enjoy the multiplayer rounds that much. I love playing it solo, but because of that, I have a lot of downtime during multiplayer games. Everybody is reading the cards and thinking about combos, but I don't have to. When drafting the cards the downtime increases.

But still, the game is a wonderful design, the artwork is great, I like the scientific style of it. The cards are well balanced. The new expansion is a must buy for me.

A long time my favourite game. I played lots of times with my best friend. In the beginning, our ships exploited all the time, we became better engineers, added the expansions and they exploited again. Always hilarious. With the expansions, their is a good way to balance the game when playing with new inexperienced pilots.

The comic style of the artwork is nice, I love the funny way of the rulebook.

I'm really looking forward to playing this one with my girlfriend. I hope she could laugh about their ship getting destroyed.

Only con, the box is really heavy with all the additional stuff from the expansions.

The theme and the artwork have drawn my attention to this one at Spiel! in Essen 2017. I played a demo there and fell in love with it. I like the atmosphere while searching for the exit always hoping, that the next tile would be good, and most of the time it isn't. After 8 plays, we finally made it to the exit. Half of them solo. The Minis from the deluxe version are ok.

I still need to get a blacklight. That'll make the experience even more exciting. I like that the whole game is prepared to play only with blacklight. The components already look pretty nice and the small flashlight from the deluxe version.

I'm pretty bad at drawing, but nevertheless, I like drawing games. Duplik is my favourite one. People often start their drawing too small or too big. The outcome is always hilarious. And you get a real game, not just an activity. With larger player counts one round last too long. I would prefer a max of 4 or 5 players.

Another drawing game I'd like to mention is Picassimo from Haba. Played this very often with my niece in law. Just the components from Picassimo are not that good, especially the included pencils.

This is our favourite 2 player only game. We love the puzzle of each round. Each game is a bit different. It is really quick, we never play only one round of this. Only the amount of table space is quite big. So it is not a good game to take with you on vacation for playing on the train or so.

This stands for the series. I like every map I played so far. One of the first modern board games that I played years ago. At that time I didn't realise that there are modern board games.

Another game my parents and my girlfriend really like.

You ever wanted to feel like Godzilla, destroying a whole city? In this silly dexterity game, you can do exactly that. Hilarious fun. It is relatively new to me, so I think it will drop a little bit over time. But at the moment, I love it.

The only reason, this is on #3 is because my girlfriend loves #1 and #2 so much.

This is just an awesome dungeon crawler fully co-op, which I really like. It is full of theme, all the monster, the cards, everything makes thematic sense. The own universe of Gloomhaven is so smart and beautiful. The mechanic with the wounds for the monsters and the standees. Love it.

In my old gaming group, I played have of the campaign, something like that. My own copy is unplayed for now, but I am sure I will start the campaign in the near future. And I like it that much, that I will play with removable stickers, so that I have the possibility to play it a third time

I like the yatzy style of this game and the custom dice. The art is gorgeous. Also a theme I enjoy. It plays quickly, easy to introduce to non-gamers. And without the board, it is perfectly portable. I will make a smaller box in the future and cut the board into smaller pieces. I did this already with Om nom nom and it worked well.

As a cyclist, I fell in love with the theme when I heard about this game. In Essen 2017 I had the opportunity to test it. In the beginning, I was not sure. It was my first racing game and I felt like playing random cards and the game seemed a bit boring to me. But and it the end there was so much tension. Just awesome. And I love that the rules make thematic sense. Also, the old-fashioned artwork is beautiful. I'm excited about the Grand tour rules, didn't have the time so far to test it.

I'm glad I have the version from 2017 because here you can differentiate much better between the sprinter and the rolleur.
