Look forward to seeing the list. I enjoyed checking out past ones. I will try to get Space Hulk: Death Angel played before I submit my favorites.

That was one of my goals as well - I got it played this morning while on family vacation! Great game - will replay more, of course, but will likely make the top 20 this year!

When I put together a list of games I'd put on my list, I was a bit surprised to see I had over 30 games on it. So cutting it down to 20 was actually quite interesting.

I could only make a top 10, so I'm not voting, but I'm so excited to see the full People's Choice soon

Of course! And others are allowed to put only heavy games on it Or a mix. Just send in the ones you enjoyed playing the most.

I've got a drawer full of light games, and I won't be ashamed to put some of them high on my top-20.

I just didn't play it last year, same with Small City. Both fantastic games but, this year at least, just outside of my top 20. But great contenders for a spot next year

Wow, that's not what I consider light...I was thinking you were going to have a list of all the easy roll-and-write or something. Quite a few of those are medium-weight at the last... (I like mostly light/medium-weight games as well).

blush blush sorry.. I was always thought/ under impressions that anything < 3 in BGG weight rating was considered light... And I was comparing what I played with the heavy weight fave, such as Mage Knight, Spirit Island, Scythe, Gloomhaven, AFFO, etc.. the one that I played feels light in comparison blush

And the one that I played the most is indeed roll & write. I played Encore the most as it is easy and soothing for me..

Looking over my current list still, but I found this interesting...

Here are my top 10 games of 2019 by PLAYS:

1. Xia
2. Dungeon Degenerates
3. Welcome to...
4. Legends Untold
5. Hexplore It
6. Arkham Horror LCG
7. Gloomhaven
8. D-Day Dice (no longer own)
9. Herbaceous
10. The Pirate Republic

And are my top 10 games of 2019 by TIME:

1. Xia
2. Hexplore It
3. Dungeon Degenerates
4. The Pirate Republic
5. Gloomhaven
6. Dark Souls: The Board Game
7. Legends Untold
8. The 7th Continent
9. Star Trek: Frontiers
10. Arkham Horror LCG

Some notes:
1. WHERE'S MAGE KNIGHT??!!!?!? I've started playing it exclusively on VASSAL and my computer died early this year. I really dragged my feet replacing it and Mage Knight was affected. Still top 2 for me.
2. Gloomhaven has fallen off, but still a top 2 game. I'm starting the expansion as soon as my rush to play new games for the PC Top 200 is over.
3. I was pretty down on both 7th Continent and Arkham Horror last year. This year I gave both games another try at less challenging difficulty levels/character counts and now I definitely get the appeal of each. (Only one will probably make my top 20, though.)
4. Welcome to... is the only game above I've played somewhere other than my gaming room.
5. D-Day Dice is fine for gameplay, but eventually the theme and constant necessity to sacrifice lives to win drained the appeal. So... I guess I'm a Care Bear. I can live with that.
6. This year I have been, on average, leaving new-to-me games on my table longer. The two Hexplore It games stayed out for six weeks in a row. I shifting toward this style of play and finding it more rewarding.


Amazing the difference PLAYS vs. TIME makes for D-Day Dice, Herbaceous, Dark Souls, 7th Continent, and Star Trek: Frontiers.

You left off one option:

How much you enjoy playing the game. For me personally, I do not judge my Top # <category> by either of those metrics.

EDIT: For instance there may be games I play a ton of because they are quick and easy to set-up / tear down. Roll N Writes for instance. But simply because I have a higher number of plays for them doesn't necessarily correlate to me thinking it's a better game than one I play less because it's larger. longer and has greater set-up / tear down time.
