Are your highest ranked games also your most played or do you lack the chance to get them to the table? How do your rankings stack up versus your plays?.

While I don't get to play nearly as much as I would like, it seems I usually get to play something I want to. My top 3 most played are also some of my highest ranked but the next 2, while good games, are there because kids or friends like them.

Plays..Game....................My.Ranking
19.....Pitch.Car.....................10
12.....Pandemic.....................9
11.....Memoir.'44...................9 Hopefully moving into #2 soon.
9......Amazeing.Labyrinth........6 Kids like it more than I do.
9......Incan.Gold....................8 Losing ground as my collection grows.

Honorable Mentions
9......Space.Hulk....................9 Long play time = fewer plays.
7......TransAmerica.................8 Quickly climbing the rankings.

My top 10 most played games and how I rate them:

d10-1 = FITS 57 plays - rating 9
d10-2 = Start Player 49 plays - rating 8
d10-3 = Can't Stop 37 plays - rating 7
d10-4 = Sorry! Sliders 35 plays - rating 8
d10-5 = Loopin' Louie 31 plays - rating 7
d10-6 = Mmm ... Brains! 28 plays - rating 7
d10-7 = Pandemic 26 plays - rating 10
d10-8 = Tsuro 25 plays - rating 9
d10-9 = Say Anything 23 plays - rating 9
d10-9 = Villa Paletti 23 plays - rating 8

Really that's not too shabby. But most of these games only get played that often because they are so fast and easy to play. So although I have 31 plays of Loopin' Louie that's not nearly as impressive as getting in the same number of a longer game.

My Personal Top 10:

#1: Nuclear War
#2: El Grande
#3: Age of Empires III: The Age of Discovery
#4: Container
#5: Battle Cry
#6: Industrial Waste
#7: Um Reifenbreite
#8: Warhammer Quest
#9: Jenseits von Theben
#10: Die Macher

My Top Plays:
#1 We Didn't Playtest This At All 51
#2 Battlestar Galactica 45
#3 Nuclear War 37
#4 Nacht der Magier 33
#5 Zombie Fluxx 33
#6 Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game 26
#7 Bang! The Bullet! 25
#8 Pow Wow 25
#9 El Grande 22
#10 Industrial Waste 22


So, why the differences?

First off my ratings are based on my desire and enjoyment of the games, but that doesn't always equate to ability to get it played. A couple games on my Top 10 list, I don't own (and aren't owned by my core group). But, beyond that, I'm the host and as host I should make sure that my guests are engaged and having a good time. So, I'll play games I enjoy, but may not be my favorite if the group enjoys them (BSG, LNoE)

Second, some games really don't stack up against each other in play count. (We Didn't, Zombie, etc.)

Third, games will see repeated play as fillers, such as Bang and Pow Wow.

Highlighted games are kid games and aren't really appropriate on the list, as many parents play perfectly good kid games (as most of these are) solely because they are parents.
Game......................Plays..Rate
Scrabble--------------------124[/COLOR]----10[/COLOR]
The Hanging Gardens---------119[/COLOR]--7.65[/COLOR]

The only real "dogs" are Hanging Gardens, which is a good 2-player time-killer and Formula Motor Racing (ditto). Neither is as good with more players.

I played this often online for a while, which explains why this is my most played.

59 x Dominion 7
44 x Hive 7
36 x Brass 10
36 x Tichu 3
31 x Agricola 9
30 x Jungle Speed 6
29 x Battle Line 7
29 x Zendo 7
25 x Crokinole 8
24 x Age of Steam 10

My only two 10's are there, so I can't complain.
