Top Ten Modern Warfare Games for November 14, 2006
1. Downtown: Air War Over Hanoi, 1965-1972
2. Totaler Krieg!
3. Lock 'N Load: Forgotten Heroes Vietnam
4. Third World War, The
5. Silent War
6. Hornet Leader
7. 2nd Fleet
8. Southern Front
9. Air Superiority
10. Warlord

Small Run and New Games
1. Blood Bowl: Living RuleBook
2. Advanced Squad Leader (ASL) Starter Kit #2
3. Here I Stand
4. Funkenschlag
5. Gamut of Games, A
6. Dreamblade
7. Die Säulen der Erde
8. RAF
9. Downtown: Air War Over Hanoi, 1965-1972
10. Ende des Triumvirats, Das

More interesting than most: LotR: TC DE (even as an acronym that's too long) makes its way past the high water mark it set in March before the ratings changed. BB: LRB returns to the top 100 for the first time since that fateful March 14 chart as well. It now tops the SRaNG list with only 154 ratings. Revolution: The Dutch Revolt and Canal Mania both advances off the SRaNG list making way for Downtown and The End of the Triumverate, the latter of which needs only 3 ratings to advance off itself. Funkenschlag needs four ratings and Here I Stand needs a scant nine to be removed. Downtown also tops the modern warfare games, which makes a certain amount of sense. It has also been exactly one year since **y**s first made its appearance at #2. So you've got that going for you. Words words blahty blah blah.

Have a good week.

What does Hot Lava Birth mean? It's a term I'm not familiar with.

I think it's a category for games breaching the Top 100 rated wall.

It's in reference to Heroscape the hot lava expansion whatever it's called.

I love that if I step away from the computer for a minute that I can be assured others will pick up the slack for me.

Thanks, guys!

Thanks. I thought it must mean a game that has never been in the Top 100 before.

It is the top 5 games by magnitude of change in ranking in the top 100 (excluding the top 10) which have shown any positive movement in the rankings this week.

Not quite right on this one. It is the five games that are closest to the top ten that have made forward progress in the last week. I keep an eye on these games as they are the most likely to head toward the top 10 ultimately. The largest magnitude of change games are listed as Prime Movers.
