Since it's apparently all the rage to make up Top 100 lists, I thought
I'd jump in on the bandwagon.

Actually, as a speaker at the Malaysian game conference Game Con 1,
they asked me to do a session on my top 100 board games. This link is
the result of that session.

http://www.thedicetower.com/misc/tophundred2005.htm

I didn't put up all the comments that others have, but I figured that
since I've written reviews for most of them, that those reviews would
suffice to cover for my comments.

In fact, I'll give 20 geekgold to someone who makes a geeklist out of it, and puts up links to my reviews. I'd do it, but it's bedtime here.

I assume by looking at this top 100 list, that they are in no particular order....right?

Darn... should have written an "Working on it"-message... I was up to no. 50 when I saw maxhavens post...

Oh well, at least I learnt my lesson.

They are ... but he makes the disclaimer that it is highly subjective and based on his choices at this time regardless of previous reviews/ratings/etc.

these are my choices if I could only keep 100 games - and the order I would put them in.

I was at Tom's talk at Gamecon1 and I think he spoke well and rose to the occasion in spite of the 'Duel of the Loudspeakers' he had with another event in the adjacent hall when he got to the top 10.shake

I know for a fact that the Singaporean and Malaysian gamers were all very happy to meet Tom in person and that talk was certainly one of the highlights of Gamecon for me.

I assume they're in Letterman "Top 10" reverse order with the absurd punch line at the end.

It is a joke, right?

I'm curious as to why you would think it's a joke?

Oh, I see, because I didn't follow the general guidelines and pick the same games that the majority does. Silly me.blush

That damn Tom Vasel. Always having his own opinions and ideas.

(Er, ideas that I've based several game purchases on. Like, you know, Crocodile Pool Party.)
