Let's not judge a game by it's publisher though... at least that's what I would say If I hadn't gone on a 3 week holiday and forgot to tell anyone I was leaving.

(an awesome real-time dice roller)...

What makes a dice roller a "real-time" dice roller?  Just curious.

My understanding is that it's a game where everyone is playing at once and there is no turn-taking so to speak. All players are simply rolling (or re-rolling), moving, rolling and so on. They're quite chaotic with a lot of shouting going on, and there's usually a time limit to keep the pressure on!

Don't look now, but everyone else forgot to add Escape: Curse of the Temple (an awesome real-time dice roller)...

Wow, that game sounds great! Do you know how I can pledge for a big box reprint and still not have it a year later?

I'm still waiting for Escape: Zombie City to arrive, which I backed on KickStarter and which was available to buy there and then in Essen 6 months ago.

Right, same campaign.

Tricky, as I now also play and love games with at first very intimidating rulesets like Brass or Robinson Crusoe, which I would rather not put on the list. But games, I think still are missing among the nominations, are:

51st State Master Set (or Imperial Settlers)
Exit: The Game series (have not played any other of the Escape Room games)
Firenze
Jaipur
Legends of Andor
Kolejka
Saint Petersburg
(although it is now uglinized: Doris Matthäus artwork had been replaced with one by Anne Pätzke)
Thurn & Taxis (for me the "better Ticket to Ride")
The Voyages of Marco Polo

Well I make that 156 entries - that's quite impressive!  I wasn't expecting anywhere near as many contenders for a top-10 list!

I think the next job will be to batch these into groups of 20 (I'll probably do this randomly) and create individual polls.  The top 2 or 3 votes in each poll will go to the next round.

Just to be clear, I'm not intending to rank all 156 games; just find the 10 most popular, so I think this mechanism will be ok.

There's still time to nominate before I create the first poll (probably tomorrow)!

Thanks to everyone for taking part!

Fab idea this Decar, it'll no doubt spur me on to discover loads more new games. It's a rather lengthy list, but there are some games that we currently enjoy which aren't listed. These are...
Star Realms
Diamonds
The Game of 49
King of Tokyo (although King of New York is listed)
Rummikub
Hive
Perudo
Arboretum

Thanks Rich!
Can't believe Star Realms didn't make the list until now  :o

It's our most frequently played app at the moment (closely followed by Onirim). In fact, I've just bought Hero Realms with the character packs because of it. Only played once so far, but it'll be hitting the table in several hours shortly after breakfast!

Might have to start bundling Ticket to Ride and it's expansions.  I'm not enough of an expert of TTR to separate: expansions/variants/different games though.

We have a bunch of the ticket to rides.  The problem is there are 3 base games (USA, Europe, and Nordic).  The Nordic has bizarre colors that don't work as well with the other expansions.  Because of that and the bigger cards, TTR Europe is the best base game.  That being said, we never play it.  The expansion maps are so much better, there is no reason to.  Our favorites are Pennyslvania and India.
