It's time for my annual statistically-suspect survey of BGG market forces! I started with the games Most Wanted in trade here at BGG, and chose those games with 300 or more Geeks wanting them. Then I divided this number by Geeks having them available for trade to create a Trading Demand/Supply ratio. What appears here are games that scored a D/S ratio higher than 10, which *might* mean they would be easier to trade away as of January 25, 2010.

As a general note over the years of compiling this list, I've discovered that new games usually rank quite well, as Geeks trading off a new release are rare individuals. Older, out-of-print games often make the list as well. Does any of this really matter? You decide.

Feel free to comment and to thumb any games that rank high on your personal demand scale.

As last year, Vlaada (Vladimír) Chvátil tops the list! Last year it was Space Alert, now Dungeon Lords! If you have this one, you're the envy of at least 467 Geeks!

Le Havre is a 2008 release, but still hot, hot hot! Is it better than Agricola?
