2 of 10, 7 of 20, 14 of 30, 21 of 40, and 25 of 50. That is to say I have not played 2 of the top 10, 7 of the top 20, etc etc from the BGG top 50 ranked games. Seeing that there are 25 of those games in the top 50, I didn't even bother extending that to the top 100. Interestingly (or not) I only own 6 of those titles. A number of those I doubt I'll ever try - like the ridiculously long and chit-heavy Paths of Glory. The two top ten games I haven't tried are Caylus and Through the Ages. Mike Gingold and Dion Garner are always trying to get me to play Through the Ages, so I'm likely to try that. I'm less inclined to play Caylus I think, but wouldn't walk away if that was the choice. I loved the Civ computer games, so I'm sure I'd love TtA, but have kept from purchasing this because of the number of production issues that the FRED editions have had. However (Dion, pay attention if you read this), I'm not playing this with more than three people. The next 5 games or whatever I haven't played includes Brass, Die Macher and Shogun. I'm going to get all of these played this year I'm sure. After that, I'm really more interested in my owned and unplayed list than the BGG top 50.
