willbeplayin Top 50 Games (Jan. 2020)
Here's some info about me and about the list. I had a lot of board games in my childhood but they slowly faded away as PC and console games took over. In the mid 2010's I owned Carcassonne, 7 Wonders, King of Tokyo but it was Lords of Waterdeep that really made me get into board gaming and kickstarted my first game group that consisted of my co-workers and our partners. I also owe a huge debt to Finland's first board game cafe Taverna http://lautapelikahvila.fi/in-english/Taverna that opened here in Tampere in August of 2016.
In this Top 50 you'll see a lot of two player games, as well as a 18XX game, Winsomes, trick-taking games and all sorts of games from light fillers to heavy euros.
I like games with multiple ways to win, elegant mechanics, deck-building, randomized setups, multi-use cards and building tiles. What I don't like are co-ops, real time mechanics, memory games, party games and luck heavy non-fillers.
As of January 17th 2020, I:
Own 79 games of which 5 are on my shelf of shame.
Own 33 expansions of which 4 I haven't yet tried (Most of which are Arkham Horror TCG expansions).
In the timespan of 2018 to Jan 17th 2020 I have played a total of 794 plays of 243 different games. H-index is 12 (12 games played 12 times). An astonishing 51% of my plays have been with my gf and two players from my game group of eight.
Games that are NOT on the list include such popular games as Terraforming Mars, Scythe, Wingspan, Gloomhaven and the Pandemic series of games.
Games that could be on the list had I played them include Twilight Imperium 4th ed., 1830, Through The Ages, Anachrony and Dominant Species.
