I've been doing the Five & Dime reports now since 1998... if you'd like to see the most recent (2009), you can check out my blog: http://akapastorguy.blogspot.com/2010/12/five-dime-2009-reca...

So, now that we're starting on Year #13 (2010) and the reports are rolling in. (You can add yours - until mid-Februay 2011) at http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/600739/the-five-dime-report-....)

What I plan to do with this Geeklist is update my progress as I compile the stats - choosing to highlight frontrunners, odd tidbits & other stuff. (Of course, if this generates more interest in the Five & Dime, I'm not opposed to that.)

Well, that didn't take long... Dominion is back on top (again - sigh) with 45% of the respondents having played it 5+ times. (Forbidden Island is in second with 35%.)

d10-5 No Thanks!

sugar The only game released in 2010 in the top ten right now is Forbidden Island.

indigo Tobago is the game with the most nickels (8) & no dimes.

23% of those responding have played Agricola 5+ times... that is (so far) substantially better than I thought it would do - what with it taking 2+ hours to set up, play & pack away.

Note: I think it's a fantastic game - though I'm pretty much done playing it with 4+ players.

Interesting new addition to the Five & Dime family is Hansa Teutonica - slightly over 19% of you have played this 5+ times.

I, however, have not played the game, as the first word in the title gives me the cold shakes reminding me of one of my least favorite games of 2004 (Hansa) along with Die Hanse (same subject matter), which is one of the early bombs of the Euro invasion.

10% of you (so far) have played Ingenious 5+ times in 2010... which is 4 more times than I've played it - ever. (Did NOT like the game.)

Interestingly, 10 of you have played 10+ times - evidently, if you like Ingenious, you REALLY like Ingenious.

With yet another 10% statistic to report: 10% of you have played Tsuro 10+ times.

Wonder if more of you would have played it if it was re-themed as the Tron:Legacy LightCycle Game?

So far, only two of you played this 5+ times last year... which was a mistake. (Don't worry, I did it, too - I didn't get my copy until Christmas of 2010.)

This is a great mash-up of Undercover/Top Secret Spies, Royal Turf & Ideal's The Sinking of the Titanic. Seriously.

Hey, I know there are a lot of AoS fanatics out there - that's how come Ted Alspach can send his kids to college off the profits from the maps he prints.

But so far, only TWO of you have played it 5+ times... and NO ONE has played it 10+ times.

I'll let you know about the other games in the "family" in upcoming updates.

It says a lot about a game when you discover that:

a) people who like it all describe the game starting with "well, it's not much of a game, but we have all these in-jokes we thought up while we were playing it"

b) only 1 person out of 230 of you has played 5+ times.

Really, people? 5% of you are playing this 5+ times? Why?! Why!? Have you no copies of better games - say, for instance, Candyland?

250 entries compiled (Monday, April 11th).

coffee 250 respondents have listed 1121 different games that they have played 5+ times... (for comparison purposes, last year it was only 967 games at this point)

tobacco The top ten games after 250 respondents tabulated are:

d10-1 Dominion
d10-2 Race for the Galaxy
d10-3 Pandemic
d10-4 Agricola
d10-5 Roll Through the Ages
d10-6 7 Wonders
d10-7 Small World
d10-8 Ticket to Ride
d10-9 No Thanks!
d10-1d10-0 Stone Age

sugar The top six are pretty well locked in - they haven't changed in the last 100 respondents. And the only change in the last 50 has been to flip the positions of Small World & No Thanks!.

indigo RoboRally takes over sole possession for the game with the most nickels (9) & no dimes.

corn 18xx (the game series) is still the game with the most dimes (5) & no nickels.
