Stumbled over this very fun ranking engine. While waiting for my own collection to be imported, PubMeeple suggested I rank the BGG Top 10. The engine pits 2 games against each other and you have to pick which one you like better.

It's way more fun than it should be.

I own the Kickstarter deluxe edition with bigger board, metal coins and realistic resources and I painted the minis. Such a beautiful game! I also love playing it.

I was late to the game on this one, but I own it and love it. I also own the expansion, but have not even played all the factions yet.

I own several Pfister games. I think the box cover of this one is a dud. Not very appealing and not at all in synch with the brightly colored and almost family-game like design of all the components. And I have not managed to teach this one in a quick and efficient way so far. Quite a few mechanics to mention here. But an excellent game, nonetheless.

I don't remember why, but I got this one right after it was released. Have not regretted it. I do enjoy the illustrations on the cards and I can't quite understand the harsh criticism of component quality. The components are not great, but they are solid. Sure, double-layered player tableaus like in Scythe would have been great, but what retail game does that? I got laser cutted wooden player tableaus from my girlfriend, so I am set.

I can't quite put my finger on what makes this game so much fun. But it definitely is great fun!

Have not had a chance to play this one yet. I like that they exchanged the cults for science (we should do that in the real world as well!) and I like Sci-Fi games, but I did not think I immediately need to buy this one. Definitely would like a chance to play it, though.

6. Board Game: Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization [Average Rating:8.57 Overall Rank:3]

I play the app version a lot and I love it! I am not very good at it, though.
I decided against buying the cardboard version, since I think it is extremely fiddly with all the bookkeeping. I just think I won't be able to get this to the table very often, so I'll stick to the app.

Through the ages got me into Civ games so much, that I preordered Civilization: A New Dawn after playing the english version once. It's nicely streamlined, quickly played and awesome.

Now I want to play the app version of Civ6. I might need to get a Nintendo Switch for that one... *theymademedoit

The mother of all Legacy games. I like the regular Pandemic alright, but am not a huge fan. Legacy was awesome! Such a great experience! I just wish it wouldn't have taken us almost a year to finish the campaign.

I played season 2 with a different group in about 8 weeks. That was great, though I think season 1 was the better game, at least in terms of story.

9. Board Game: Gloomhaven [Average Rating:8.94 Overall Rank:1]

A frind backed the first Kickstarter, I played 6 or 7 games with a four player group and then dropped out of the campaign.
Our specific group might partly be responsible, but I really, really, dislike this game!! What a tedious, dragging, brown mess! So many mechanics I dislike! A single game took us 4 to 6 hours and it felt waaaay longer than that. Horrible.

In terms of dungeon crawling, I'll stick to Descent 2nd ed. Especially with the app, that's quick, fun, exciting and entertaining. Everything Gloomhaven is not. At least to me. Everybody else have fun with your apartment-sized box of brown floor tiles, but leave me out of it.

Since this one was top rated game on BGG for so long, I thought I should at least have a look. I bought the app, played the tutorial three times now and still have absolutely no idea how this game works.

Also, the theme is a real turn-off to me. This is the only part where the ranking engine is not accurate. I would not play Gloomhaven rather than Twilight Struggle. If these two were the only games available, I would rather not play at all.
