Following on my first look into what games were the favourites of people who have the "statistics fans" microbadge, this list now looks at the game ratings of all those users.

Big nod to MattDP and his interesting list on what games are the favourites of Ameritrash fans.

This list will follow the same form as MattDP's, starting with game #45, working it's way up to the game most highly rated by statistics fans.
I will also comment on the difference in ratings compared to the general population here on bgg, and on the number of ten lists that game appeared in.

There are 119 users with the stats fan microbadge, 8 more than the other day when I made the first list!

To be included on this list the game needs to have recieved at least 20 ratings, that's about 20 % of the raters if you take into account those users who have not rated any games at all.
All expansions have been ignored. Most notably, TtR: USA 1910 would have made the top 10 of this list.

That is 0.01 lower than the bgg rating, very much the same!

Cuba appeared only on a single top 10 list, but gets the minimum 20 votes and just makes it onto the list.

-0.29 means that most stats fans dont really share the fascination for this game that many others have.

Still makes it onto 6 top ten lists, so those that like this one tend to really like it!
