Top 100 Favourite Games – 2016 edition: the List

After ten weeks of top tens, Christmas is over and the top 100 is now complete. So, if you want to look at it without reading what I think about the games, here’s the list.

Last year I published my Top 50 Favourite Games. This year I felt it was time for my Top 100 Favourite Games. Once a week I posted one set of ten games, until the week before Christmas. That’s in the past, so now I’ll give you the whole list here.

Like I said, last year I did a top 50. I am going to compare the position on the new list with that of last year’s, but it’s going to be a bit weird. The list doubled in size, so more than half of the games weren’t on last year’s top 50. Three games from that top 50 aren’t even on the top 100! More on that later. I made this list in September 2016, so you probably will not find any very new games (read Essen releases) on the list.

  1. What are the points based on? Times played? Your criteria? If so, what are they?
    Sales figures? From what shop?
    Euphrates and Tigris is a 10+ year old game.
    Tzolk’In is also old.

    1. I think you’re pointing to the number between brackets? That’s the spot on the list compared to last year’s list. So (new) means that it was not on my top 50 list last year.
