Every year the San Antonio Board Gamers vote on their favorite games. We voted in '07 and '08.

This year we had 13 voters, which is roughly the same we have each year. 59 different games appeared on at least two voters "Top 20" list, and 123 games got a thumbs up somewhere along the way....

Update -- The scoring system. Each voter makes a list of their Top 20 games. The #1 game gets 40 points, each game down the list getting one less point, so the #20 game gets 21 points. This means that being #20 on two lists is worth (slightly) more than being someone's favorite game, but that two people's favorite will outrank three people's "barely made the list."

No surprise that BSG appears on the list, but the newcomer managed to pull out a convincing win, showing up on 10 lists and earning 326 points.

So say we all.

Five voters, 160 points. This year I decided to combine Ticket to Ride and Marklin, which is arguable, but most everyone voted for Marklin explicitly. (One voter picked both).

Hordes of the Things is pretty much the same as De Bellis Antiquitatis, but with non-historical armies as well. So they tell me.

Small World may have been higher if it had been out a bit longer. Then again, it may be a flash in the pan.
