This is the fourteenth edition of the Hot 40: The games which were most played in March, in terms of the number of different people who played.

See the January 2007 edition for more info:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/19941

Apologies for the late posting of the March list - my excuse is that I got married

Summary for March 2008:

Race For The Galaxy continues its record-smashing run at number one, but other games are catching up, particularly Pandemic, which trailed RFTG by a mere 50 players. Other games chugged along at their usual pace but still have a way to go.

18 Galaxy Trucker

Other games reaching all-time highs in March:

2 Pandemic
9 In the Year of the Dragon
11 Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization
13 Arkham Horror
30 Hive

Other fast moving games in March:

+19 Hive (49 to 30)
+19 Hey! That's My Fish! (56 to 37)
+16 Railroad Tycoon (52 to 36)
+9 Pillars of the Earth, The (41 to 32)
+6 Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization (17 to 11)

-21 1960: The Making of the President (25 to 46)
-16 Yspahan (38 to 54)
-9 For Sale (23 to 33)

Games reaching all-time lows in March:

16 San Juan
