Five & Dime: A Fond Farewell

After 15 years of publishing the Five & Dime lists (both here on this blog & over on the Opinionated Gamers website), it's time for me to let the Five & Dime "go gentle into that good night."

There are, of course, a trio of reasons for this:
  1. My new job and commute eat into the time that I once used to compile and publish the Five & Dime lists.
  2. The resources available through BGG and folks who scrape that data are much more extensive than what I am able to muster.
  3. I want to spend more time playing (and reviewing) games than I do crunching stats.
I've had a wonderful time over the years putting this together - and I still think there are interesting things to be learned from these numbers - but it's time for us to bid a fond farewell to the bar graphs & percentages.
