How Many Plays Do You Hope To Get From These Non-Top 25 Games?

A week back, I asked How Many Plays Do You Think The Top 25 Games Are Good For?. The resulting data was interesting - only two games (Dominion and Race for the Galaxy) received any significant support for 1000 or more plays, and many of the games had fewer than 5% of the respondents expecting even 100 plays.

One aspect I was curious about, in creating the polls, was how the top 25 games on BGG would compare to the classics - games which have stood the test of time and are played thousands of times by many outside of BGG.

So - how many times do you feel each of the games listed below will last for you? Note that this isn't the number of times you _have_ played the game, but the number of times you believe you would be _willing_ to play the game, over the course of your lifetime.

If you prefer, feel free to include only desired plays as an adult, and not plays from childhood, where appropriate.

(Please note that polls don't always work well in geeklists; if one acts as if you have already answered, when you haven't, just click on "Questions" and make your selection - it should be registered properly.)
