I haven't been in the hobby long but my collection is growing and I'm confident in my top 20. See what you think. This list is about pure fun. There is not too much else that matters to me when I sit to play games.

#20 New social deduction game. So much going on. It is a little chaotic, but when the group buys in, the game really works.

#19 Solid little two player game. Complex but not overwhelming. Need to understand how to score it, but once you do it's fantastic.

#11 New to the collection, but the game is a great group game. I especially like the semi-co op nature of the first round. The least round is always entertaining.

#10 This game is crazy good. Trying to figure out your own things while balancing what the others know and are scoring. Little bluffing thrown in and it makes for a great game night.

#7 I'm a sucker for auction games. This one gets better with the more players you have. Also hits that 5 player count that few games excel in.

#6 A little too cutthroat for some players, but this game is perfect at what it does. Area control with some big swings. You don't want the lead until the end.

#1 With all the expansions, this engine builder can be replayed without ever playing the same game. Different factions allow for some flexibility. Sometimes you are playing for cards, others resources, every time for points. Not a crowd favorite but playing it is always a blast.
