I attend and co-run a game night every Friday from 7-12. We average about 12 people who's gaming tastes run the gambit but typically favor lighter fare. As such I usually end up playing games that others want regardless of my feelings towards them.

It was during (yet) another game of warewolf when the following screamed through my brain; Must we play this again?!

Now Friday's are typically the only nights I have for gaming. I'm a full-time student and work 2 part-time jobs. About twice a month my wife will humor me with CCA or 1960 but this isn't nearly enough to satiate my crazy gaming appetite.

Which brings me back to game nights where I'm stuck playing warewolf for the millionth time.

So onto the list.

How does your top 10 games compare with your top 10 games played?

I am including only games played since joining BGG in 2007.

My #1 rated game is Quoridor. It's my only 10. I have not played a single game of it since I got here. That might contribute to the "always want to play" factor, I'm not sure. I'll find out in December, when I finally get to play it again.

The rest of my top 10:
2. Crokinole - 17 plays
3. Tigris & Euphrates - 14 plays
4. Go - 9 plays
5. Biblios - 25 plays
6. San Juan - 73 plays
7. Lectio - 14 plays
8. Fictionary - 1 play (since 2007)
9. Manoeuvre - 2 plays
10. Through the Desert - 20 plays

Most played since 2007:
Lost Cities - 85 plays, rating 7
Bohnanza - 84 plays, rating 6
San Juan - 73 plays, rating 9
Treehouse - 51 plays, rating 5
The Settlers of Catan - 41 plays, rating 8
Hey! That's My Fish! - 36 plays, rating 8
Blokus Trigon - 34 plays, rating 7
Ingenious: Travel Edition - 34 plays, rating 7
Razzia! - 34 plays, rating 7
10 Days in Africa - 32 plays, rating 6

My Top 10 Today:

1: Wallenstein
2: Chinatown
3: Louis XIV
4: El Grande
5: Power Grid
6: Notre Dame
7: Goa
8: YINSH
9: The Pillars of the Earth
10: Agricola

Games Played since 2005:

Ticket to Ride 127
Chinatown 88
Agricola 60
Traditional Card Games 59
Saint Petersburg 58
To Court the King 58
Ingenious 47
Ra 45
YINSH 45
San Juan 31

Short games win here. The bigger, longer games (El Grande, Powergrid, WEallenstein) don't get played that much and not multiple times in one session. Agricola has 60 plays mostly because of the solo option.

Top ten rated
#1: Power Grid
#2: Ghost Stories
#3: Ubongo - Duel
#4: Ubongo Extrem
#5: Ubongo
#6: Battlestar Galactica
#7: Galaxy Trucker
#8: Kingsburg
#9: Factory Fun
#10: Roma


Top ten played
Kingsburg 100
Magic: The Gathering CCG 79
Loopin' Louie 44
Liar's Dice 40
Power Grid 37
Ubongo 34
Metro 32
The Settlers of Catan 30
Ghost Stories 29
Can't Stop 24

As far as I can tell, I just need to play more BSG, Galaxy Trucker, Factory Fun and Roma.

My most playeds appear to be really fast (like less than 10 minute) games mixed in with my top ten. Settlers was in my top ten for a long time, and probably still would be if I didn't have such a massive collection. I will likely never play another game of Metro or Can't Stop, I think I've played them to extinction.

#2: Compatibility (5)
#3: What Were You Thinking? (12)
#4: Scrabble (95)
#5: Sports Illustrated Baseball (13)
#6: Wits & Wagers (12)
#7: Acquire (15)

#8: Portrayal (3)
#9: Personal Preference (1)
#10: Can't Stop (5)

My 10 Most Played (with known play dates and logged here)
1. The Hanging Gardens 116
2. Scrabble 95
3. Blokus 22
4. Circus Flohcati 20
5. Smarty Party! 16
6. Acquire 15
6. Alhambra 15
8. Puerto Rico 13
8. Sports Illustrated Baseball 13
10. BuyWord 12
10. Formula Motor Racing 12
10. Ticket to Ride 12
10. What Were You Thinking? 12
10. Wits & Wagers 12

Hanging Gardens was just a convenient 1-hour 2-player game for awhile and Blokus is actually here because we play it with the kids a lot (I took out lots of purely kid games with dozens of plays). Flohcati got a lot of quick play one year and Smarty Party was once in my Top 10. So, given those caveats, I'd say I've stuck pretty well with my Top 10.

My Top 10:

#1: Die Siedler von Catan
#2: 2038
#3: Bridge
#4: Race for the Galaxy
#5: Thebes
#6: Frisch Fisch

My 10 Most Played (1996-present):

#1: Bridge
#2: Race For the Galaxy
#3: Hearts
#4: 500
#5: For Sale
#6: Mü
#7: Jambo
#8: Schnäppchen Jagd

2038 is #47 on my played list, Thebes is #74, Frisch Fisch is #50, Merchant of Venus is #35, Res Publica is #21, and Advanced Civilization is #248, all out of 1860 different games played.

Of course, if I look at the time spent playing, rather than the number of plays, Advanced Civilization rises all the way up to #10, and 2038 to #3. Might as well run the whole list:

#1: Bridge
#2: Race For the Galaxy
#3: 2038
#4: Mü
#5: Merchant of Venus
#6: Die Siedler von Catan
#7: Jambo
#8: Puerto Rico
