Deserves the #1 spot. I'm guessing it will hold it's place on the BGG throne for quite a while.

Fantastic news for a fantastic game and congratulations to the designer. There's a big fan base that will only grow bigger once Gloomhaven hits the Retail channels. I hope Mr Childres will not rest on his laurels for too long and will come back with an expansion for his masterpiece.

Totally deserved. Gloomhaven not only accomplishes things that people have been trying to do in Dungeon crawls for years, but bundles the first 6 (8? 10?) expansions into the main game box.

It's a shame though that people can't walk into a store and buy it. I can't argue against it being number one though. Excellent package.

No store is large enough to hold one

Totally deserves it. This game has given me the most enjoyment of a board game this year, and in previous years. Hopefully Isaac is working on that expansion he teased about a while back.

So sad...

Twilight Struggle is still the better overall game.

Gloomhaven is a niche fantasy product.

Seems to be more evidence the rating algorithms are flawed.

This is just the incentive I need to get it "organized", re-read the rules AND Finally get it to the table.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

So rad!

These have all been fantastic overall games.

Gloomhaven is a captivating and praiseworthy fantasy product.

Seems to be more evidence that co-op legacy games are hot right now.

I feel like the BGG #1 game is like getting a new Doctor from Doctor Who.

It only happens once every few years, but it's always fun to see what makes it.

And perhaps add "diceless" as a favored trait

I enjoy a good dice-chucker dungeon-crawler; but I much prefer the diceless play of Gloomhaven.

The ranking algorithm is certainly not perfect, but are you really surprised that a universally praised game that plays well at all player counts is beating a 2-player only game?

I haven't played either game, but I hear a lot of, "Twilight Struggle is amazing...but...but...but" and a whole lot of, "Gloomhaven is amazing, everyone should try it".

One could argue a card-driven pseudo-wargame about re-creating the decades of the 20th-century Cold War between the USA and USSR is more niche than a fantasy dungeon-crawl.

Your own personal opinion certainly does not provide any such evidence. That's not really how it works.

Wait, you mean store shelves aren't packed full of dry looking Cold War simulation games? Lies!

Right now, the only game with a good launching pad to overtake Gloomhaven is Twilight Imperium 4 (1K rating average 9.13). But given the TI3 rate, I'm pretty sure this won't last.
