I have been a board gamer most of my life, but around 2004 is when I really got into the modern table top games. Power Grid was the spark for me!
Top 10 = highest ranked / most played / favorites of all time
This doesn't change much...
Hot 10 = Most played games from 2014 in order of "hotness" (plays)
I usually rotate this with the "hotness" from the past 3 months, and use end-of-year stats to start off the new year.
