There are on this site? Many are unranked, so one cannot simply skip to the last page of the rankings....

Go to Games - Games. Click sort by name. There are 463 pages of results. At 50 per page, that's 23,100 to 23,150 games. Easy enough to get it exact by looking at the number of games on the last page, if you want precision (but a number that will be out of date ten minutes from now).

tenhole's result is more accurate, because some games have been removed from the database, and the ids are not reclaimed.

Yes, the most recent game number isn't accurate, since games are deleted and combined, and the unused gameID is not re-used later.

Or you can just look at the letter bar after doing all that and next to the word ALL see that there are 23,133 games.

Several years of coming to this site and there are still some basic things you'd think I should already know how to do!

Thanks everybody!

When I sort the games by Recent, I note that Sesame Street Dominoes is the most recently added game as of this post. It is game id #24,456.

So 24,456 - 23,133 = 1,323 games deleted or merged. About 5% of all games added to the geek....
