After doing a list of my top 10 games of 2010, I was interested to see which games have come out top from each year. My interest in games really took off after we moved into the new millenium, so it is only fair that the list should start then.
Again, please remember these are my own personal choices and you will probably disagree with them!

May 2012 update.
I have reviewed my top game of the year list to include 2011 and check the games in the original list.

June 2013 update.
Added my top game from 2012.....

August 2013 update. As I play more games some of the list changes!

Edit 17/08/13: just one play of Web of Power was enough to oust Citadels from the top spot.

2007 top game was originally Biblios, but in the 2012 update it has been replaced by Galaxy Trucker.
Edit 17/08/13: Now the spaceships have given way to a bunch on zombies in Last Night On Earth.
