As a byproduct of examining end-of-year totals for logged plays, I noticed that the top games consisted of an alarming number of games which we consider fillers. And so here are the filler games that my wife and I like to trot out.

Played an old Uberplay version last year and bought ourselves a copy of the newer (and somewhat pricier) Gryphon Games edition. This was the game we played the most number of times (N=24). We often use this as a quick gateway game or a warm-up game. Easy to explain, new gamers often want to play again immediately thereafter.

Wife and I often played this on planes and ferries. Kills time, fast and fun.

An oldie, but a goodie. Both my wife and mother-in-law liked the game and couldn't win, so they kept on making me play the game. SO this one is skewed high in number of plays by the two of them.

Brought this on a ski trip and was a hit amongst our friends.

One of my wife's new favorite card games. Set collection mechanic with a pretty neat theme.

Fairly short and easily explainable game. Once when we didn't have the game with us, we improvised with a deck of cards and it was still a hit.

Another set collection card game. Aside from the terrible plastic smell, the artwork is great on the ThinkFun edition.

Fun, but non-interactive solo-puzzle play. Good for gamers who avoid confrontation.

To me its rather bland and boring. I was surprised it ended up so high on the list.

Great game. It is slowly picking up steam as a filler of choice.
