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. While these changes may not be significant, it is interesting to see what changes are detected on a week to week basis. Also, added is a "non-expansion" top 100 chart. Feedback is appreciated.

Games 1-4 refer to the Full Chart.
Games 5-8 refer to the Non-Expansion Chart.
Games 9-13 refer to the Full Chart for June.
Games 14-17 refer to the Non-Expansion Chart for June.
Games 18-22 refer to the Full Chart for 2nd Quarter 2005.

See the last week's list here:
