No, not the Top 20 Ranked games. These are the Top 20 games played by Unique Users for the Week of November 06, 2009 through November 12, 2009.

Update:

As I mentioned last week, these lists will always be a "week late" from now on. I wanted to give more days for people to record their plays, so I am pulling the stats at least a week after the Thursday, when changes are at a minimum (so these lists are accurate), but I still hope they are timely enough for a good view of what is "hot" at the momment.

This Week:

Some of the new releases from Essen went down a few this week. Were they a brief flame, or will they continue to shine?

Halloween themed Arkham Horror and Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game dropped off the list.

Moved into the Top 20 this week:

Le Havre
Ra

Dropped out of the Top 20 this week:

Arkham Horror
Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game

About these Lists:

I decided to do a weekly list of my favorite stat: Unique Users plays.

Like a weekly Music Top 20, it will have the Top 20 games played by Unique Users (without Expansions). I start on Fridays and end on Thursdays to allow the weekend plays to be recorded together. I pull the stats a week after Thursday to let the logged plays "settle in," which means the list is always a week “late.”

I think this is a good list to see what people on BGG (who record their plays anyway) are playing. I have used this statistic as a good measure to see what the current hot games are, and especially what the up and coming games are as more players start playing it.

#4 to #2

A real fight at #2, #3, and #4. Race for the Galaxy has lost it's stranglehold on #2, and has now shared it with Pandemic, and now Agricola this week.

Agricola moved into #2 for the first time this week.

#2 to #4

A few more players this week wasn't enough to keep it's #2 spot, and it went down to #4. That is the lowest in nineteen (19) weeks, but #2-#4 are all very close. No expansions with Top 20 numbers this week.

Jumped a spot after last week's drop behind the new release Power Grid: Factory Manager. This was the last game in the Top 4 that isn't one of the "Big 4" that have been dominating the list for the last thirteen (13) weeks.

Nice jump up this week. It is even higher than the themed Power Grid: Factory Manager. I wonder if people playing Power Grid: Factory Manager realized they hadn't played the actual Power Grid in awhile and it got back on the table.

Highest spot since I started the lists eighteen (18) weeks ago.

A new release that regained most of it's loss last week from it's initial gain to #12 on the list. One of my gamegroup just got his copy, so I will probably add myself to the list of players soon.
