Hey there gamers! I thought it would be fun to end the year with a little Top 100 List!I hadn't updated my top 10 page in a while, and knew it was time, then I thought, why not just do a quick comparison of all the things I've rated on BGG? :)
I used this nifty site here and ... voila! Top 100! These are just some games I love (no expansions included), from all different years, ranked, and some with a little snippet. I plan to try and do this every year to see how much things change, or if I'm pretty consistent. Feel free to let me know what some of your top games are, or make suggestions for me based on things I like - I'm always looking for more games!! It's gonna be a long one, so buckle in!
Happy Gaming, and Happy New Year, folks!

A really fun dice rolling game that has a lot of room for variability and some light strategies.
