Recently, I've collected ratings of all BGG users who've rated the Top 10 current games. My reason for doing so what to know what would be the Top10 if only gamers who knew all of those games have rated them.

I've done a second exercise which is to look among those happy few, the point of view of those who rated a specific game 10 (in terms of average ratings). The purpose was of defining, for example, what games are preferred by T&E fans.

Here are the average ratings from the 131 users who rated (and hopefully played) all of those 10 games:

Aver. Diff. Game
------ ------- ---------------------------------------------
8,62 - Agricola
8,50 - Puerto Rico
8,28 - Power Grid
8,08 - Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization
8,01 - Princes of Florence, The
8,00 - El Grande
7,99 - Caylus
7,95 - Twilight Struggle
7,89 - Race for the Galaxy
7,77 - Tigris & Euphrates


So, the one who played all games didn't escape the "Agricola" syndrom. The list is very similar to the Top 10 on BGG to the exception that:
- Agricola is already #1
- Through the Ages is higher on the list
- T&E and TS are far lower on the list
