Five & Dime 2007: Lo, How The Mighty Have Fallen
These are games that have appeared on the Five & Dime lists before... and have fallen in overall playing percentages.
Note that some of these games are still highly rated on the overall and/or five/dime lists... with the substantially larger sampling group, high percentages that used to be common to the top games (60%+) have completely disappeared. So, Thurn & Taxis and Ingenious can all take pretty big hits in number of players... and still end up highly ranked.
Once again, this is the list I'm most accurate at predicting: I called the top three games to appear here. (Caylus, Thurn & Taxis and TtR: Marklin.)
Ingneious & Liar's Diceappearing here was primarily a function of the generally lower scores - while some of the other games (That's Life, the Ticket to Ride games) seem to have genuinely dropped in the number of people playing them. (
Predictions: Notre Dame will top this list next year... also appearing will be Battlelore, Yspahan & San Juan. (I'm not sure about Zooloretto...)
