This is my most played game. In time spent and especially in number of plays. I play it every games night that I bring it, often while we are waiting for others to turn up and often again when the event is dying down. I can not overemphasise how worthwhile this game is. Look below for the expansions.

Really great simple worker placement game. Great to bring beginners into the hobby, and a reasonable amount of tension between what you want to do and what you are able to do. Well worth it.

edit: after platyying this game again I found that i like it more. and some of my friends will want to play it all the time, so it rose on the list.

Lots of fun. crash down from the mountains with the giants. pop up from nowhere with the halflings and JUST NOT DIE with the elves. Super flavourful and can bbe quickish as long as people just have their turns. can take a little longer with AP but doesn't suffer as much as many games. Expansions below.

I have this and "lupus in tabula" I really want Ultimate werewolf but it has been out of stock for a while. Great party game and has served me well over the last few years.

Edit: Just recieved Ultimate Werewolf and I haven't played werewolf since. It is going to entirely replace this game and hopefully will be played as often as it deserves.

I like this game, A lot. It isn't my favourite game but it should be higher on this list. My friends however are over this game. *sigh* Oh well.

Hopefully I'll eventually find some people who will want to play it.

Edit: I have recently played it again a few times. Good fun game.

This one surprised me, a very light resource management game, I saw a video review of it and I must say that it is really fun and quite a fast game if played properly. It will definately become one of my standard fillers and will probably take away some of dominions dominance in my games nights.

Edit: after 4 plays of this game one of my friends is losing enthusiasm with this game. I still think that it is really good but I don't think that it will become the go to game that I originally thought.

Really good game but it really is a 4 player game and it takes a while particularly if it needs to be explained to a new player. This stops it from hitting the table as often as I'd like.

Great gateway game for larger groups. A really good way to start a games day, and if you play around with the roles makes for interesting new decisions each time.

Edit: this was my top game for ages, I have now played it many times and have exciting newer games. it may go back up the list, and as it is a fairly cheep game I would definately recomend it.

Really I don't know where this goes yet. I really like the idea of it, but you need the right event to get it out. I'm very much looking forward to that day.

Edit: I have just played my first game, and I went for the advanced game. It was very enjoyable and I'm looking forward to playing it again. It probably wont be for about a month though as my regular group often has 5 or 6 people in an evening so you cant start an epic 2-4 player game very often.

I have only played this once since I got it. Quite fun a reasonablee amount of luck and lots of difficult tile placement means that this occupies a unique place on my list. Only time will tell as to whether this rises or falls. (ps. I know it's cheating but I'm including the expansions in this one.)

Edit: I like this game but the box is huge. It is the size of two large games next to each other. It is very convenient when people come over for games. It is very inconvenient to take somewhere. It is a fun game but it has a high amount of luck (that needs to be skillfully capitalised on) and there are definately games where someone just got a break and there was very little that other players could do. I like it but we'll see if some of the expansion modules increase the skill somewhat.

I think that this is a slightly more interesting clue/cluedo without all of that faffing about with a board. If I ever want to scratch that itch it may even get played again.

I really like the flexability that this expansion brings, whenever I play catan I always sneak in something from this expansion.
Having finally played some more catan. This expansion has grown even further in my esteme. The barbarians attack scenario is fantastic and the rivers and fisherman are both great ways of speeding up one of the longer scenarios. I will always use something from this expansion even if it is just the harbourmaster or the event cards. definately my favourite catan expansion.

Great simple expansion, there is little reason not to include it other than the fact that it doesn't fit into the box properly. Doesn't change the game that much but adds that extra bit of variety that will keep this from getting stale.

5 and 6 players is where Seafarers comes to life, If only I could convince 4 or 5 other people to play it. And yes it goes above regular catan 5&6 even though you need catan 5&6 to play it. It is just much more fun. MUCH!
