These are the highest rated games, as of August 29 2005, grouped by BGG-listed playing time. This list skips expansions, games without a playing time listed, and games with fewer than 100 ratings. I think many folks will agree that many of these time listings are just plain wrong, but it is interesting to me none-the-less. I found quite a lot of games were in the 30, 90, and 240 minute range; are these magical playing times used by publishers use to target players of light, moderate, and heavy games despite actual playing times? Probably. Ratings used were non-Bayesian, which skews the results, but since the playing times are all boffo it wouldn't make this GeekList any less subjective...
