The Holiday Season means new games for a lot of gamers. Topping this year's list of stocking stuffers appears to Railroad Tycoon. which has shot up in both votes and positions. Dei Macher is back at its peak; four more weeks (or a move to #5) and it'll pass Wallenstein. Lots of stuff at new peaks this week. Santiago had been a #99 for 5 weeks which seems like insult at this point. Will RR Tycoon and the Settlers 10th Anniversary Set continue their pace to the top 40? Find out next time.

Have a good week.

Great to see Keythedral finally break into the top 100. A great game with lots of player interaction. It would have made it much sooner if not dragged by the 1st edition.

Bridge is finally starting to drift upwards again I see. Good work as always.

Heroscape seems to be disappearing...guess my group was right not to buy it...

Hmm, interesting to see that Die Macher has taken over El Grande's place. I totally agree of course, Die Macher rules. Just funny to see games that have been around for so long, you would think they had stablized a lot. For one spot movement, it almost seems a mammoth effort.
