I wanted to track my thoughts on the various games that have contributed to my H-index over the years. I will be updating the list when I increase my H-index and add a new game to the list. I recently took a deep dive into my own H-index, which I posted here: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/66795/deep-dive-my-bo...

Current H-index: 20 (June 30, 2017)

Previous H-index updates: 19 (March 11, 2017); 18 (November 27, 2016); 17 (August 30, 2016); 16 (June 18, 2016); 15 (February 19, 2016); 14 (August 14, 2015); 13 (April 13, 2015); 12 (June 28, 2014); 11 (April 5, 2014); 10 (August 27, 2013); 9 (March 23, 2013); 8 (November 10, 2012); 7 (June 19, 2012); 6 (February 24, 2012); 5 (January 13, 2012); 4 (December 9, 2011); 3 (April 9, 2011); 2 (January 15, 2011); 1 (December 21, 2010).

This is by far my most-played game, but I still do not feel as if I play it enough. Most of my plays have come with the base game only, as I am often teaching at least one new player how to play, but there are probably about ten each of Leaders and Cities included in those plays, along with one on Babel.

Pandemic was the first cooperative game that I really enjoyed, and I still love it now. I have played extensively with all of the expansions, particularly On the Brink, and I have not played without at least one expansion since I introduced On the Brink on my 12th play.

We integrated In the Lab last year, and I often mix and match between modules as well. Many of my plays are with one other player with both of us playing two roles, and it's never that long before we need to save the world all over again. Also, I found that Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 actually increased my desire to play the original Pandemic, so I am still returning to it time and time again.

RftG is one of my favourite complex card games, and like 7 Wonders, I feel as though I never get to play it enough. My forty plays include many with the first expansion of the first story arc(The Gathering Storm), but very few with the other expansions (a surprising 0 with either Rebel vs Imperium or The Brink of War, 2 with Alien Artifacts, and 0 with Xeno Invasion).

I have played this hundreds of times on the Keldon AI with those expansions, but it is tough to get the full deal to the table because Race has such a high learning curve. This could quite easily become my most-played game, and I think it will always be one of my favourites.

The now-classic King of the Hill kaiju crowdpleaser sees a lot of action in certain circumstances, and I almost always find it fun (even when I am eliminated early on in the action). It's even better now that I can play with the monsters from King of New York thanks to the Power Up! expansion for that game, and I think this will always be one of my go-to games for a fun-loving group of people.

This is another game that I often play twice (or thrice) in a row and that I still feel like I'm learning, even after over two dozen plays (not to mention the hundreds of plays online). I'm really looking forward to the new Cities of Splendor expansion and what that will add to the game.

I have definitely played this more than 29 times, as it was one of my earliest board game obsessions. I have played with every major expansion (and almost all of the minor ones, too), and it still presents a challenge every time. I have only played Mega-Carcassonne once, though, so I would like to try that again by mixing in all (or at least most) of the expansions.

Most of my plays came between 2011 and 2014, as Dominion was one of the earlier games that I discovered in my board game geekery. I have played with most expansions (save for the newer ones) extensively, and although I still enjoy a round now and then, I tend to get my deck-building fix elsewhere.

I recently played for the 25th time, and it was only on that play that I added in the Farmers of the Moor expansion. In fact, I still have not added in the I or K decks, since I'm often teaching the game to new players. There's a lot of life left in this game for me, and it lives up to its reputation.

This is the shortest cooperative game on my list, but it might be even more fun than the other two. The combination of logical deduction, social cues, and memory seems to always make for a notable experience. I still have never gotten a higher score than 22 (though I have rarely played with the same people twice), and I have not used the rainbow firework, either, so there's a lot of game left here for me to explore.

FP: FR is the second of three cooperative games on my list, but I think they all deserve to be here because they all do something a little different. This one in particular has a much more fun chaotic element to it, and I think I have probably lost it more than I have won. I have played all of the expansions at least once now, but I would like to play them all again.

Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 might just be my favourite gaming experience ever, and it is well deserving of the number 1 position on BGG. We played through our games over the course of a calendar year, and we won three months outright; the extra play came when we accidentally misplayed the first game of November and had to replay the month as it had been intended. I cannot wait for Season 2!

I'm always surprised at how few plays I have of Battle Line, as it has been one of my favourite two-player strategy games since I started recording on BGG. It's great as a "pure" strategy game with sixty cards and tactical placement, but I also love it as a slightly more swingy version with the Tactics cards. This might be my favourite Reiner Knizia game - and that's saying something.

Citadels was the first game for which I recorded a play on BGG (although I have since gone back and added a few previous plays), and it remains one of my favourite strategic role selection games. Because I am often teaching the game, I have barely cracked into the expansion roles, but my hope is that the recent re-release will inspire more interest in the game and that will mean I can play it more.

Fleet is a fantastic, quick distillation of an economic tableau-building engine, and I really enjoy how easy it is to teach and to play. The expansion is a requirement for variability, but there is more than enough content when it is included to make an interesting game every time. Plus, it is one of the few strategic games that has a Canadian theme!

GtR was my introduction to Carl Chudyk, the master of swingy card games, as well as to multi-use cards. I was fortunate enough to buy this several years ago for $20, and I have definitely gotten my money's worth out of my copy - and then some. I usually play the Republic version since it's a little more forgiving for newer players. I also own and play Uchronia and Mottainai, but neither of those matches the brilliance of the original, even with as swingy and uncontrolled as it is at times.

The other swingy Carl Chudyk card game that I absolutely love, even if I have rarely played it in recent memory; my lack of plays in the past couple of years is mostly because it has such a terrible learning curve for new players and my wife does not really like it, but I hope that the new edition will incite interest in this game. I still have barely played even the first expansion, so I have a lot of life left in this game.

Kingdom Builder is one of my go-to gateway strategy games. It is variable enough that it is different every time, but it's easy enough to learn that anyone can play it and win. I have played a limited amount with Nomads and Crossroads, and I have not yet played with either Marshlands or Harvest, so I have a lot of plays left in this game.

I love that LoW is easy to learn but still engaging to play strategically even (or perhaps especially?) when you're familiar with the quests. It is one of the best gateway worker placement games, and I have enjoyed almost every play of this game. I play with both expansions, even with new players, and it's always a hit.

One of the underappreciated gems of my collection and a particularly fantastic solo game. This will definitely rejoin my H-index at some point, since I often binge by playing a few solo games in short order.

I never imagined that The Resistance would fall off my H-index, but here it is, relatively unplayed in a couple of years, despite the fact that I have owned the expansions for several years and not yet played them. Maybe I just played this game out; I guess I will see if it returns to the H-index at some point.

I suppose part of the reason I did not feel the need to play Puerto Rico was that San Juan scratched that itch, but then there are a number of other games that are similar enough to San Juan that I stopped playing it for awhile. Still, I tend to think that San Juan is simple and elegant enough that it will see more play in the future, so it may yet re-enter my H-index.

When I first discovered this game, I played it quite frequently, which is why it joined my H-index at 11 (and only then). I recently revisited this classic family strategy game, and there is still nothing that does the same thing it does as well. I could see binge-playing this again and having it re-enter my H-index at some point in the future since it has a permanent home in my collection.

Currently not on H-index - dropped off at H-index 12

Plays as of June 30, 2017: 13

I'm quite surprised that this game has not gotten more play in recent years since it's such a fantastic family design. This is another game that I could easily see getting a lot of plays in a short time and re-entering my H-index in the future.
