Scythe has had the honor of being the #6 game on BGG for the last few months, so I wanted to congratulate Isaac, Josh, and my fellow backers of the original Gloomhaven campaign (and the reprint campaign) on Gloomhaven's new position in the rankings.

From reading Isaac's blog and updates over the last few years, I know how much time and passion he put into Gloomhaven, and I'm glad to see that it's created so many moments of joy for people around the world. The new ranking is well deserved. Congrats!

When the new KS delivers, I'd like to store these next to each other on my shelves. However, I fear that much mass in a small space might be detrimental to the fabric of reality, let alone the shelf shake

We're already looking for a new apartment so that we can fit more bookshelves for the upcoming games. (Only partly a joke.)

Thank you Jamey! I wish Gloomhaven could go up without knocking everything else down. I'm still bummed about 7 Wonders not being #7 anymore, too.

MAy be should delete one game from the top 6 (not Gloomhaven) so that 7 Wonders can still be #7 ^^

I would vote for:
Star Wars: Rebellion

What an amazing 12 months we've had. So many new games climbing into the top spots.

So cool to see engaged, positive developers like Isaac and Jamey on there. That's part of the reason they've been so successful. Thanks, guys!

What a stellar thing for Jamey to do! Good to see designers and publishers supporting one another. Maybe Isaac and Jamey should work together on a project....?

Gloomhaven will climb on #1 till the end of the year. If it delivers as estimated in August, it could even happen at mid-fall.

Isaac actually spent a weekend playing an early version of Charterstone as a developer. The final version is very different than the version he played, and I think we have very different design styles, but you may see small touches of his influence in the final game.

This is a reminder that, if every board game developer was an egg, Jamey and Isaac are good eggs.

Jamey, can't wait for Charterstone.

Isaac, Gloomhaven currently envelopes my free time.

Maybe, we could turn the rankings into a coop game instead of competitive one?

Gratz on topping our game, both on BGG ranking and number of broken shelves . There's no end to the whining from the one of my shelves that's holding my copy of Gloomhaven .

One interesting observation- both Isaac and Jamey like to wear plaid shirts. Obvious conclusion to other game developers to create a top ten game: Harness the power of plaid!

I thought of that immediately after I posted. Even more evidence!

Yeah, because what I needed was to be even *more* excited about Charterstone.
