Short post today. Catching up from some extensive travel this week. Looking forward to Thanksgiving week and some quality (quiet) time with the family and hopefully some gaming out on the Oregon coast.
Some of you have surely been following The One Hundred (final list here), an exercise aimed at identifying the top 100 games of all time. The process involved surveying a group of gamers for their top 15 and combining the results to determine the ranking.
My geek score is 59 owned + 68 played = 127.
Some observations on the list:
- I’m amazed at how many of the games I own, especially considering that I only started accumulating games two years ago. At that time, my score would have been 10 or less, getting credit for the card games, backgammon, and Knizia’s Lord of the Rings.
- There were few surprises for me on the list. The omission I’m most surprised about is Amun-Re.
- The games on the list that I haven’t played that I’m most interested in playing are Medici, Vinci, Die Macher, and Capitol.
- The highest ranked game that I dislike is Tikal. Next highest is Hoity Toity.
Lists are fun.
