Am I a man or am I a muppet? If I'm a muppet then I'm a very manly muppet!

161 different folks (1 gaming group & 160 individuals) submitted lists of the games they played 5+ (nickels) & 10+ (dimes) in 2008... and I, your humble servant, have done the tabulating & number-crunching in order to bring you (fanfare, please) the 11th Annual Five & Dime Report.

Yes, hold your applause until I've read all the names, please.

Anyhoo, over the next couple of weeks, I'll be releasing this information over on my blog, aka pastor guy, with some highlights posted to this thread to whet your appetite. (What does that mean, anyway? Do I need something to drink when I'm hungry or if I drink something, it'll make me hungry or are you going to use a sharpening stone on my taste buds - ouch!?)

The blog address is:

Here on Day One, it's time for the Most Played Games of 2008:

#1: Race for the Galaxy
#2: Dominion
#3: Agricola
#4: Pandemic
#5: Tichu
#6: Stone Age
#7: Ticket To Ride
#8: 10 Days/Europa Tour
#9: Power Grid
#10: Lost Cities

For the rest of the Top 25, the actual numbers, and my pithy commentary (ha!), check out:

Day Twelve (and then some): Decay Rates

This time around, we're getting statistical (Olivia Newton-John as a gamer: "Let's get statistical, statisical!" OK, maybe not.) and calculating the decay rate in the popularity of some of the biggest games here on BGG.

Two games have no decay whatsoever after 5+ years of play: Tichu & Chicken Cha Cha Cha. (Yes, that's an odd pair. I noticed it, too.)

To see the whole list, proceed immediately to:
