There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

I own 4 of those but I only paid for 2 (traded on BGG for Memoir '44' and 'Last Night on Earth'). Settlers and Ticket to Ride I bought a while back.

I don't think Humans!!! really should be on the list but each to his own. It's presence on this sales list reminds me of the PC gaming sales charts when some budget hunting game makes the top 10? Huh??!

You can't really argue with sales figures. This is Top 10 Board Games by Sales for the Fall 2008, meaning the these are their top sellers. There isn't really anything to disagree with, unless your objection is simply that you don't think people should be buying the game... Zombies!!! is a popular game and a strong seller, hence the steady stream of expansions like Humans!!!.

Sure, it's standalone, but it's kind of also an expansion. At least a sequel, and I'd bet 99% of the sales went to people who already own Zombies!!!
