Being a weekly summary of changes to the top 100 rated games on Board Game Geek. The purpose is to grab a weekly snapshot of games before their ranks change to get a sense of what activity is occurring. Feedback is appreciated.

See the last week's list here:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...

Since this is the last chart of April, someone asked if I'd also add a monthly summary. It is presented in a slightly stripped down format.

**Prime Movers**

Will nothing stop the rise of Downtown? It flew up from #96 to #69. That reversal of its position is a gain of 27. Red Barricades - ASL Historical Module 1 climbed 16 spots from #47 to #31. Yanks - ASL Module 3 pulled up 7 positions to land at #47 and Web of Power (alias Kardinal and König, alias China) developed some influence over BGG and rose from #77 to #72.

**Falling Stars**

Duel of Ages Set 2 - Intensity and Doom: The Boardgame drop 9 spots a piece. The former wanes from #69 to #78 while the latter is banished from #79 to #88. Down seven this week are Puerto Rico Expansion (#85) and Whistling Death (#70). Funkenschlag is currently (get it? currently? oh, never mind) at #97 (down 5) and Struggles of Empires struggles down five to #35.

**Top Ten Trends**

Die Macher and Age of Steam each climb one spot as Twilight Imperium 3rd Ed continues its overall decline. TI3E dropped from #6 two weeks ago to #10.
