Here's the idea:

Choose a game from the top 20 on BGG which you believe to be overrated, and replace it with one from outside the top 250 boardgames, which you believe to be underrated.

I would take out Dominion, and replace it with a far more elegant hand management game: Jaipur

I´d also take out Dominion.
And self-aggrandizing replace it with Topology (not underrated, but unrated yet)

I would take out Twilight Struggle and put in I'm the Boss!.. At least one Sid Sackson should always be in the top 10.

Take out Dominion and replace it with ... almost anything else. Heck, Settlers even.

Whoa....I almost missed that part of your post. That makes things harder than just taking out something from the top 20 and putting in something from the top 50.

I'll go with removing Caylus and putting Bananagrams in its place. It's a relatively simple realtime word game that is getting played a lot by my family and friends.

What's with all the Dominion hate in here? Too many expansions too fast?

Shouldn't you be playing a game with me instead of wasting time on the Internet?

Not too surprising- Dominion is an outlier in a lot of ways, and the question could have easily been: Which one of these things is not like the others? What other thing do you think is under rated?

I'd replace War of the Ring with Doom: The Boardgame.

Mostly because I'm a Doom fanatic (at least with the PC games).

Remove Dominion.

Replace with Power Struggle or Homesteaders.

Take out Puerto Rico, move everything up, and put Saboteur in front of BSG.

I don´t hat it, it is not bad. But in my opinon - and it looks like i´m not the only one - its not as great as the hype made around it tryes to make it belive.

Theme and mass market identification will have little merit years down the road. Objectivity will chop through the B.S. like Chuck Norris through reality TV. Battlestar Galactica will no longer occupy the same place in the hearts and minds of men that The Dukes of Hazzard Board Game did in 1982. A nostalgic bombasticism of marketing pop, I'll use my scalpel here...

Replace Battlestar Galactica with Beowulf: The Legend. Why Beowulf? It is my highest rated game outside of the top 250. Beowulf gets an undeservedly bad rap, and I have no idea why. Runner up: Dos de Mayo! Sorry Dos-- I only get to replace one today.

Since steam is already in the top 10 and I think its a much more fun game than Age of Steam, I'd replace age of steam with Mission: Red Planet

I don't know games 11-20 nearly as well as 1-10 and if I did my choice would probably be different. But, of the ones I know, it's got to be:

Agricola out.

Unnamed Object in.
