This is a list of the top games with the most plays after my first 1000 plays.I started logging my plays on Christmas Day 2004 and I also later logged my plays from the World Boardgaming Championships(WBC) that I attended prior to that(2001,2003,2004)because I had those recorded on paper.This list is alot of shorter games and filler type games because those are the easiest for me to get to the table.I usually game with my wife and sometimes my kids and other family members with mostly lighter games and about once a month for heavier games with my game group.I only count my face to face plays and solotaire plays but do not count any online gaming or computer gaming(like puerto rico the PC game).

This is my most played game and probably will remain near the top as it is fun to play and is a pretty quick game.

This is another one with a quick playing time and also supports 3-8 players pretty well. I expect this to be one of my most played games in the future as well.

This is a real short game which takes about 5 minutes to play.Seems to be enjoyed by kids around 10-12 years old.Gets boring pretty quickly but not unusual to beak it out and play it with the family and rack up about 6 plays or so at a time.I always liked this one and my wife and kids usually cannot beat me.

A game me and my kids would play quite a bit and also one my nephew wanted to play when he would visit.Does not get broken out quite as much and heroscape has kind of taken some of the plays away from this one as the kids like to play that instead now.

A game I really enjoyed and one that really got my family into playing better games.This loses some plays to blokus trigon which I like better but the family still seems to like this one better.Best with 4 players.

A game my wife really loves so we play it alot 2 player.We only play 2 rounds with 2 players at it makes it a better game as it is way to easy for both players to make their 8 pizzas in 3 rounds.We have already made our 8 pizzas in 2 rounds even.This one will probably see heavy play as it is the one my wife chooses right now.

One that gets played once in a while as my kids get into lerning it at times then they stop.Chess is really only fun when 2 players of pretty equal strengh are playing which makes it hard to get to the table.That is probably wy I like knightmare chess better as I enjoy the unexpected things the cards do.

Another game like chess that is really good with players of equal skill.This game is alot shorter than chess so most people will give it a try as it is not as confusing as chess but still has a high level of strategy.I moved away from my main twixt opponent so it may not receive as much play as it did.

Most of these plays were from me and my friend playing the whole campaign game.I do really like this game but due to the long playing time this will probably not see too much play.I always wanted to play this at the WBC but have not invested the time to do so.
