I've found it interesting to watch my top 10/hot 10 trends for the past several years, since 2006 where I started recording it. Here they are with the new results from 2009.

In Top Ten (# played) / Hot Ten (# played) format

The year had some dualities due to being the first year where I really "opened" to the 'geek, as well as where I spent a considerable amount of the year in Austria.

The year also had a duality to it: I became more involved with more games, and played many games I enjoyed over the first half of the year, only to learn a plethora of further games over the second half of the year and rate many of them higher.

This year also featured a minor duality, in that in late July, I got both Wabash and Agricola within a week of each other. They dominated the games I played in the latter half of the year.

#3: Imperial (10)/Age of Steam (18)
#4: 1854 (3)/Imperial (10)

There was a major duality this year - Go. I started "really" playing it in June, and it's been a major part of my gaming life in the latter part of the year. Winsomes have also been going strong all year long, and my attempts at more 18XX continue...
