Blott's latest TGIF Poll http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/489602/the-78th-edition-... related to how you filled out your Hot 10 list on your profile page. I fill out mine by listing my 10 favorite games that I have played at least once but less than 5 times in the post. (My Top 10 are games I that have played at least 5 times.)

For this Geeklist, post your favorite game that you have played less than 5 times and list your 10 favorite games that you have played less than 5 times. Basically list how you would fill out your Hot 10 if you used my system.

1. Tichu
2. Chaos in the Old World
3. Carcassonne: The Castle
4. Can't Stop
5. DVONN
6. El Grande
7. Long Shot
8. Steam
9. Tigris & Euphrates
10. TAMSK

Most of these are on the list because I haven't had them long enough to get many plays in. El Grande I've had for a while, not sure why it hasn't been played more.

1) Merchant of Venus
2) Paths of Glory
3) EastFront
4) Richard III: The Wars of the Roses
5) Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization
6) Friedrich
7) Britannia

6. Board Game: Power Grid [Average Rating:7.91 Overall Rank:29]

1. Power Grid
2. Tigris & Euphrates
3. Arkham Horror
4. Galaxy Trucker
5. Colosseum
6. Nexus Ops
7. Thebes
8. Samurai
9. Battle Line
10. Small World

I have a number of others that would have made this list are listed as less than 5, but I know I've either played them prior to collecting plays on the geek or have played too many times online. My biggest problem with not playing the above more than I have is finding enough players (particularly for PG and T&E).

1. Reef Encounter
2. Container
3. Tobago
4. In the Year of the Dragon
5. Formula De
6. Mexica
7. Iliad
8. Pandemic
9. Age of Steam
10. Cleopatra and Society of Architects

Some of these like Tobago, Iliad and Mexica are recent pick-ups. Some like Cleopatra and In the Year of the Dragon just don't get pulled out for play nearly as often as they should be.

At 6,000 minutes per game, I will likely not get infive full plays. But it is the most compelling and absorbing game I have ever played.

9. Board Game: Taj Mahal [Average Rating:7.31 Overall Rank:308]

1. Taj Mahal (4x)
2. Ra (3x)
3. Dungeon Lords (1x)
4. Dungeon Twister (1x)
5. Modern Art (2x)
6. Torres (1x)
7. Rise of Empires (1x)
8. Caylus (2x)
9. Glory to Rome (1x)
10. San Marco (3x)

Ra, Modern Art and Torres are recent purchases. Taj Mahal and San Marco need at least 3 players so the chances of playing them are limited. I don't own the rest and don't even plan to; they are gamers' games so I don't think they would get played too often.

Only two plays so far. It's also a new pick up though. I will be getting to 5 plays quickly because it's a great game.
