I love rankings. I tried to do a Top 100 this year but i find that hard. What is the meaning of a game beeing on position 87 or 88. If they are in the top 100 i like both of them and i don't have any clue why i should one on the one place and the other on other place. I thought about doing sections: from 1-10, from 11-20 and so on. But that isn't so much fun either.

So i decided to do my personal top 10 of the best games i played the first time in 2011. There can be older games in that list or games that are brand new and since the game still ha 6 weeks, there can be even some additions later on.

So have fun with this short list and feel free to add your own personal top new games from 2011.

After haveing played a lot Innovation Glory to Rome was the next logical step. It is a complete different game, but it's much fun and i really like it. Not as much as Innovation but if i want to play a euroish-role-selection-ressource-management-strategy game, i'd choose this one. A real masterpiece and the european edition looks really nice. Unfortunately i own the US edition, but well ... christmas is coming

All i can say about this game was said here Comprehensive pictorial review of Star Trek Fleets Captains: Somebody told you this is the wet dream of every trekkie and you wonder if he's right or not? Here you'll find the answer!. Unfortunately i just managed to play this game twice, but i hope that it'll see much more plays in future. For me, it is the wet dream for any trekker. I hope in 2012 there'll be one or two expansions for it, so people: BUY BUY BUY!!!

I owe this game this geeklist: Interesting 2p Games for advanced / expert players to be played in 30-60 minutes. It appeared late on my radar but i was able to make a good deal and imported it for under 20€ and it has seen a lot of plays.
It's a game that suprised me. Short as Lost Cities, but a lot of strategies and decisions to do.
I did a comprehensive review about this game as well, it can be found here.
A comprehensive pictoral review of Omen: Reign of War - An excellent competetive, short, deep two player game which should be known to a much wider audience

I don't have made my final opinion about this game. Generally i like it, but has it's flaws. To little player interaction for my taste, but a nice effort in the 4X genre, playable on one evening, but you need a HUGE table if you want to play it with more than four.
I am doing a complete comprehensive pictoral review about this right now and hope to publish it until the end of november

I really, really like this PVP-Deckbuilder. I prefer to play it with at least four players, better with five. This has it's flaws to, but with the right people it is much fun. Since nobody can count the wound cards correctly it has a nice social component (i have the most wounds, kill him!) that i really enjoy

I love The Lord of the Rings, and this is the first LCG i enjoy to build my own decks. If Star Wars LCG is a winner, i maybe stop playing or at least buying additional expansions for this game. Hard to beat in most cases, but building decks against the game makes fun. More fun to me than to play PVP, but even in World of Warcrfat i was more into PVE as in PVP.

This is a masterpiece! I really like the concept and the fact that this is an Euro for at least four, better five or six players. I like the concept of playing a country and play against it once it was overtaken by someone other. Haven't seen this concept in many other games. One of the few remaining Euros i really, really enjoy. As i started my gameing carrer as a Eurogamer, this is something special. I really like that there are no always-win-strategies, since everything depends on what the players do during a game and how they perfom. Really a winner, and the best rondell game for me. Even better than Navegador, which i also enjoy.

My 2nd favorite Euro from 2011. Was a birthdaypresent from my local FLGS. Nice use of dice. Way better than in Macao. Fast to play (within an hour) and a blast to play. A winner and my number 9 of 2011

My first real wargame. I only had the opportunity to play this once, i am missing the right gameing group for it. And we just played the basic rules, but it was obvious how much more fun this would be, if playing with the complete rules. I hope this will get some more plays in 2012 !

What a game. I don't belive i have seen any game on the geek with more 10 ratings and i think it deserves it. More than 4000 years old still the best area controll game in the world. Good adjustable if playing with weaker players and a game you can never ever master. You'll learn how to play this your hole live. In times when nobody will talk about any game on this list anymore, there will be still players wo play and love goal. In my opinion this is far better than chess and my ultimate most favorite abstract game.
