Last week I posted a Definitive List of BGG World Records which included the Top 3 BGG GeekLists of all time. Interest was expressed in seeing a more complete list, especially of the most popular content submitted in 2008. Well folks, you asked for it, you got it. Here's the Top 20 BGG GeekLists of all time, with special mention of the Top 10 GeekLists of 2008.

Enjoy browsing the finer efforts of some of our BGG GeekListers, and where appropriate head over to the GeekLists and give them a thumbs up!

NB: Figures accurate as of December 1, 2008; See current figures here. See also: Top GeekLists of 2007.
