I am a Fan of ranking all kind of stuff, so I do like ranker.com.

Today on the Mainpage I've seen a boardgame Ranking I was in shock:
[url] http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-board-games-... [url]
At the moment the Top 10 are:

1) Monopoly
2) Risk
3) Chess
4) Scrabble
5) Battleship
6) Trivial Pursuit
7) Clue
8) The Game of Life
9) Settlers of Catan
10) Apples to Apples

GEEKS spread the word, unite and lets go there to vote for really good games to show the people out there some real games!!!! good games!!!!

Never in my wildest dreams (nightmares?) did I imagine there existed a list that contained Arkham Horror and Hungry Hungry Hippos.

This was rich as well: "Or innovative new table-top role playing games pushing the boundaries between fiction and reality?" That's just creepy and to add insult to injury, they're probably referring to Subbuteo.

Leave them be. Those rankings are obviously based on what the casual gamer has come from playing many of the games mentioned on that site. I have no problem with that. Some of the most fun I've had has come from playing many of the games on that list. In my opinion, those ARE good games with the right crowd *ducks*.
We already have BGG for the hardcore crowd. What more do you need?

Well, we have BGG for that. And if Arkham Horror & Peurto Rico are on that list, people aren't exactly unaware that more complex games exist.

Don't kill monopoly.

I guess I have to go vote for it on top just because of these lame attempts.

Oh well, at least Monopoly was still in the lead.

Dominion? :/

Yahtzee?

There's bigger issues than Monopoly. Seriously.

Pandemic has just passed Hungry, Hungry Hippos which is still ahead of Agricola and Cosmic Encounter. It just sounds so wrong.
