I figured I'd go the opposite of ekted's list: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/33933. Just out of curiousity. Everyone can put their highest ranked pick if they like.

Heh.

To be fair, I HAVE to play this game with my regular group, but I don't know if it'll go higher than a 7 for me. It's a good game, just a little "busy" for my tastes.

I've rated this as a 7. Which would probably place it somewhere within my top 25-30.


7. Good game, usually willing to play.

I'd imagine it would be difficult for you to get all top ten games listed here because that would mean that someone would have to have rated the top 9 games within their top (or hot) 10, but not the 10th game:

1 Agricola
2 Puerto Rico
3 Power Grid
4 Twilight Struggle
5 Tigris & Euphrates
6 El Grande
7 Caylus
8 Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization
9 Princes of Florence, The
============================================
10 Race for the Galaxy



[edit] When I listed this I forgot that Agricola passed Puerto Rico this morning. Therefore, I suppose it technically shouldn't be listed here for me. Feel free to delete this entry if you like. I just received Agricola but haven't played it yet. I am expecting to like it based on what I've read so far, but who knows.

The boardgame equivalent of frozen cardboard-tasting pizza for me, it's dry as the Sahara (unlike the river valleys it's named after) and I just don't get it after multiple tries. I don't like Amun Re either, so maybe it's a dry game revulsion problem. Wouldn't make my top 10 if it had a million dollars cash in the box. A solid example of a popular game not always being a good game for a given individual.

Don't get me wrong, I really like the game. It's just not in my Top 10. My Top 10 tends to have games that I've owned for a longer time period and I just haven't owned this very long.

Puerto Rico has been out of my top ten for 4 years or so. I rate it a six.

I have no rating for Agricola because I have not yet played it.
