I pulled a bunch of data a couple of weeks ago to try to assess the biases against certain types of party games and a bunch of other yet-to-be-determined statistics.

This Geek List isn't about that.

Today, I used my alternate account to create a Geek Buddy list comprised of the 21 souls who have proclaimed their affinity for party games through the purchase of that particular microbadge. That's right, out of the Oodles of BGGers, only 21 are proud to wear the Party Gamer microbadge.

But I bet they know their stuff when it comes to that particular underrepresented segment of the BGG database. So I took that new geekbuddy list and gathered the data on all games for which ate least four of those party gamers had bothered to rate.

Using that criteria (at least 4 of the Mighty Twenty-One had to register a rating for a game to be included), they have rated a collective 379 games. And of those, 49 are party games.

OK, there's a starting point. Those 48 games must be the creme de la creme of party games. So here I present the Top Party Games according to BGG Party Game Microbadge Holders.

Of the 48 "Party Games for Party Gamers", this game ranks only 8th amongst non-party-gamers. But when only the Enlightened Twenty-One vote, it's top dog.

Party Gamers: 9.00 (1). Rest of BGG: 6.84 (8).

This game isn't even listed as a Party Game on BGG (I've submitted a correction). But it's the 4th most beloved game of all by party gamers (that's right--four notches above Puerto Rico).

Party Gamers: 8.81 (2). Rest of BGG: 5.99 (26).

* Highest absolute rise in average of any game when comparing the unenlightenend to the enlightened. Also the highest rank rise (gaining 24 positions).

Here's our first game that is rated lower by party gamers than by your average BGGer.

Party Gamers: 8.17 (5). Rest of BGG: 7.25 (2).

Interesting that the 2nd highest rated party game is only a 7.25 in the eyes of non-party-gamers, compared with party gamers' #2 pick (Facts in Five), which garnered an 8.81. Overall, the 48 ranked party games got an average score of 6.60 by party gamers and 6.18 by non-party-gamers, for what it's worth.

A game for old farts like me. I've heard people (who aren't quite as young as they used to be, Chris) talk about how this is a game about trivia questions from before most people were born. And a great game it is.

Party Gamers: 7.95 (8). Rest of BGG: 6.51 (18th).

Amongst non-party-gamers, this is the least well-known entry on the list, ranking 48th in number of total votes cast with only 54 (compared with 5 from party gamers, which ranks 23rd in their camp).

According to those who don't proudly profess to be party gamers, this is THE party game king. Boy are they wrong.

Party Gamers: 7.68 (10). Rest of BGG: 7.57 (1).

While a drop of 9 positions wasn't good (40st out of 48 ranked party games), Ca$h 'n' Guns (#6 for the rest of you out there) claims biggest dissing amongst party gamers, losing 26 positions.

Note: the Top 10 party games as determined by BGG Party Gamers have a cumulative rating of 8.20. Those same 10 games get a 6.91 by the rest of BGG. Just thought you'd like to know. To be fair, if I took the BGG at-large's favorite 10 party games, the average jumps to 7.03.

Another that had as precipitous of a fall as Time's Up did. I guess this is more in tune with what "gamers gamers" like or less in tune with what "party gamers" like.

Party Gamers: 7.58 (13). Rest of BGG: 7.16 (4).

This is also a very common party game, having been rated by 1718 non-party gamers here, second only to #16 on this list.

Chuckles must have something to do with this--he's not a party game badgeholder, and I bet he gave this one a high rating. Apparently a lot of non-party-gamers do so, too. A classic version of Balderdash with short answers (always a good thing).

Party Gamers: 7.50 (14). Rest of BGG: 6.92 (7).

I played this when it was called something like "Apples and Oranges" and enjoyed it enough to purchase it when it had the new name. But it grew tiresome quickly. I just don't understand why "the public" loves it so. Note that my fellow party gamers don't rate it in the Top 10.

Party Gamers: 7.36 (16). Rest of BGG: 6.81 (9).

This is far and away the most popular (2871 votes) party game when you speak to "the rest of BGG." On the other hand, with 14 out of 21 party gamers chiming in on this one, it's pretty hot in their camp, too.

While party gamers may not appreciate this game so much (after all, we're down to number 18 here), they must all play and/or own it, as 13 have given it a score. That's 2nd most popular in their group, compared with only the 8th most popular party game amongst the masses.

Since our 20th entry is an expansion (A2A expansion) and I dislike data getting all muddied up with people rating expansions, I'll jump down to an interesting entry.

Party gamers and non-party gamers alike agree on the bottom party game on this list--Bingo is dead last in both groups. But the one that's just above that on the non-party-game list is ranked #24 by party gamers. That game is Charades.

Party Gamers: 6.50 (24). Rest of BGG: 4.52 (47).

Just for fun, here are the Top 10 games rated by at least 4 people holding a Party Gamer microbadge. This includes all games, not just party games.

1. Shogun (9.38)
2. Beyond Balderdash (9.00)
3. Tigris & Euphrates (8.83)
4. Facts in Five (8.81)
5. Mykerinos (8.75)
5. Hive (8.75)
5. China (8.75)
8. Puerto Rico (8.69)
9. Smarty Party (8.55)
10. DVONN (8.50)
10. Elasund: The First City of Catan (8.50)

That's quite a bit different from the Official BGG Top 10.

Just for fun, I looked at the games which were rated by at least 10 of the 21 party gamers here at BGG. These must be very common games. There are 43 of them. The bottom 10 on this list are about what you'd expect: Battleship, Monopoly, Uno, Yahtzee, Stratego, Clue (that's the bottom 6, from worst to least bad). But the 7th least liked very popular game by party gamers is Chess (6.21, 266th out of all 379). And just above that are:

8. Cranium (6.25, 259th)
9. Bohnanza (6.45, 239th)
10. RoboRally (6.50, 221st)
11. Coloretto (6.58, 218th)
12. Bang! (6.73, 203rd)

Remember, these rankings are out of 379, so all of these games rank in the lower half of games rated by Party Gamers. I'm impressed.
