So here's the scoop. C&C: A had passed BattleLore to return as the best C&C game. C&C:A is #12, BL is #14, M44 is #30 and BC is #108. 1960 becomes onl;y the second game to peak at #11 (of course it could go higher) joining Goa. Space Hulk continues to blaze away at new peaks despite being older than most games doing this consistently. Brass also continues to climb. CC:E is one space behind the peak it established in September.

Have a good week.

Whoa, 1960 jumped to 11th? Impressive. Last I had seen it was lingering around 14-15. Very cool.

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

There's a typo in there with Brass listed as a wargame.

There's games about the American Revolution, right? Well, why not the Industrial Revolution?

OK. I fixed it. blush
