The SABG Top 50 Results for 2008

Took much longer to compile than I thought. Anyway, thanks to everyone who voted, and if you didn't vote, remember that you still get to complain bitterly! And maybe you'll vote next year. Anyway, rather than cut and paste everything here, I'm just going to point you to the geeklist.

Ok, one cut and paste job...

Games that fell off the charts (and their place in 2007):
  • San Juan (#2)
  • Tigris & Euphrates (#4)
  • Hammer of the Scots (#10)
  • Stage II (#17)
  • EastFront II (#18)
  • Shadowfist (#24)
  • 7 Ages (#29)
  • Phoenicia (#31)
  • Dune (#35)
  • Werewolf (#40)
  • Colossal Arena (#41)
  • Samurai (#42)
  • Yspahan (#43)
  • We the People (#44)
  • Twilight Struggle (#45)
  • Crusader Rex (#46)
  • Loopin Louie (#49)

Thanks for doing this Brian. As I know only a fraction of the game that most of the others do, I did not send you a list. But I do enjoy seeing what the group as a whole likes.

Brian: I sincerely appreciate the effort you put into this. I find this kind of thing very illuminating and gives me a better idea of what games to suggest at upcoming group meetings. Its also gives me a better idea of games I need to try harder to evangelize in the coming year!

We should add together the votes from both years to generate an "all-time" ranking.

Brian: cool list; thanks for your efforts.

Eh, I figure the all time thing should wait until we've done a few more years.

Listmaking is the final G in BGG.

Late to the party, but thanks for doing the list, Brian. Putting it on the geek makes it easy to read about the games which is nice since I know most of those by name only.

Thanks for making the list! This was a lot of fun considering my list and then seeing how the group list looks.
