Seriously, watching this last episode of your Top 100 Games List is like watching the final episode of a great TV series... You were so excited for all of the weeks watching these episodes with great pleasure and then you realize: it's over now.

THANKS Tom, THANKS Melody and THANKS Holly for this great series. I'm looking forward to your Top 100 Games List in a year. Until then... have fun playing these great games!

I can barely keep up watching these, and then it is exhausting. Tom and Melody have to actually produce them!

Great job!

See this text? It's a gratuitous waste of GeekGold.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

Better than just picking Agricola or Puerto Rico like everyone else around here. At least it's a refreshing and new angle.

Thanks Tom and Melody for all the time and effort put into making and filming this list of games! It has been quite entertaining watching them and I've awaited the next release with great anticipation as they were being counted down. I like how your list reflects the fun you and your family and game group have had with it over the past year and is significantly different from other game lists, even here on BGG. I am quite interested in trying some of the games you've mentioned and seeing if my experiences with them matches the ones you've had with them.

Thanks again and I can't wait for the 2010 list! ;)

I love that Tom and I have the same #1 game, and it was my #1 long before I knew it was Tom's #1 - even though I knew Tom from the Duel of Ages boards. His wife's character - Lyrra Swan - is one of my favorites from all the sets.

[fanboy]Duel of Ages is really an amazing work of game design, but it does take a while to dig into the system and learn all the mathy nuances enough to really get good at the game. Sadly, the below-average production quality and the fact that you need at least Sets 1, 2, 3, and 8 to hit this sweet spot keep many from really discovering it.[/fanboy]
