I have to admit that I don't use BGG to log my games!

But I started logging games this millenium. So this list shows my ten (sometimes more due to ties...) most played games of each year in this millenium.

I started gaming way back in the last millenium but didn't log my games. So I have fond memories of playing lot of chinese checkers with my grandma, several "Spiele des Jahres" with my aunt and uncle, a lot of skat gaming with my parents and some obscure games like Acquire or Energiepoker with a good friend of mine.

Later, just before finishing school, I started gaming on a regular basis with friends and having a lot of fun with games like Kreml, Hoax, Ave Caesar, Targui, Blood Royale etc...

My gaming epiphany must have been my first visit at Essen in 1990. So many games but so few money... But I came back every year since then. With more money so my gaming collection could grow...

But back to this list: the game listed each year is my most played game that year which has not listed in previous years.

BTW: I only log face-to-face games...

1. Mus (101 games)
2. Deadlands: Doomtown (64 games)
3. Schuss und Tor (24 games)
4. Guardians (12 games)
5. Serengeti (10 games)
6. Chrononauts (9 games)
7. Four Dragons (8 games)
7. Tichu (8 games)
9. Scopa (7 games)
10. Phantoms vs Phantoms (6 games)
11. Schotten Totten (6 games)
12. Shipwrecked (6 games)

Total: 415 (100 different) games

No surprise here! Since I am a big fan of card games and MUS is one of my favorites. We try to meet every fortnight to play MUS and I try to attend most of the tournaments here in Southern Germany. This year was especially good because I won some of them...

Unfortunately, Mus is a 4-player card game and so is Tichu, my only other game I rate a 10. But with my friends here Mus is more popular...

I also remember this year as the last year of my CCG-addiction. Especially, Doomtown and Guardians were my two favorite games.

Mus stays on top but StreetSoccer was big this year! No surprise because it was the WorldCup in South Korea! And we try to get a big gaming day with soccer games during each WorldCup or EURO.

I tend to play a lot of different games, so it was nice to see a meatier game like Puerto Rico in the Top Ten.

Mus still reigns and this year was more on the lighter side of gaming. But Bounce-It-In is so much fun especially with

Mus still on top but the number of plays dropped. As a former CCG-addict I was drawn into Blue Moon. I remember my first game that left me quite unimpressed. But than I was hooked! I even found a group and we meet every second week just to play Blue Moon. The result can be seen next year...

Back to normal this year: Mus on top, Blue Moon on second. But Tsuro was really strong! Not only my regular gaming group liked it but also my family, my wife and their family as well. So on all our visits we had it with us...

And with Trötofant and Bizzy Bumblebees there are two more silly games that I really dig... My wet dream of gaming must be playing Trötofant, Bizzy Bumblebees and Looping Louie at the same time...

Like the last years Mus and Blue Moon take the top two spots. This year saw a lot of gaming. I have very fond memories of my vacacation with my wife in Ireland. Three weeks of beautiful landscape, nice hiking, lot of rain and Guiness and a lot of Schotten-Totten and Blink since these are my wife's favorite games... She also loves playing Schildi Strandkröte with me.

And my new acquisition of Tumblin'-Dice saw a lot of gaming in that year!

10. Jamaica (9 games)

Mus still on top and Blue Moon still second. But I thinks this will change this year: With Race for the Galaxy and Dominion there are two very strong contenders! And our regular Blue Moon Gaming group switched to these games as well. And they also like Chicago Express which might be in the Top Ten 2009.
