BGG Top 100
So, out of the top 100 games on the BGG, how many do you own now? Um, before I answer that - why are we doing the whole inner monologue thing again? Probably because your style of writing isn't interesting enough by itself. You really need this extra superfluous crap or the whole thing becomes a series of monotonous drivel and your readers will give up on you. Well, first of all, I really only do this for my own amusement - its not like I'm part of a larger site that has to regularly publish stuff. True Dat boooooy! And secondly... ok, I don't have another point. Forget it, I'll answer your question. After a quick spot check, I show that I have 49 of the top 100 games. I used to own another 11 of those but I traded them away. WTF?!? You traded away highly ranked and well thought of games? If you don't watch out, there is going to be a picture of you on the FailBlog with something like "Game Collection Fail!" Whatever. Of those 11 I had only played 5 (Tigris and Euphrates, Race for the Galaxy, Memoir '44, Arkham Horror, Amun-Re, Ticket to Ride:Marklin). The other 6 were games I didn't really care about and mostly got for trade bait in the first place. Dude, there's something not right about that. Ok, I have to ask. How many of those 49 have you not played yet? Dude! You are me! Why do you have to call me out like that? Eight. Well, that's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. That's only like 16% of your "Top 100" collection. Yeah, that was lower than I thought it'd be for sure. I'll probably get a few of those knocked out in the coming month, what with the Geekway 2009 less than three weeks away. Oh? Like what? Well, I'd like to try and get Le Havre played both before I go and at the con. I'd kinda like to play Die Macher at some point. And of course, there is Shogun. Gotta play that. But that's really more of a "play my un-played stuff" thing than play the top 100 thing.
