What (Modern) Boardgame Have You Played the Most?

15 Oct 2018 23:00 #283120 by WadeMonnig

Sometimes, there is a difference between what game you have played the most and what is your favorite. Leaving out the classics board games such Monopoly, Poker, and Clue, that have decades long head starts on modern board games, I tried to narrow down what game I have played the most. Some games, like Coup, have the advantage of short play time and virtually no set-up. Others, like King of Tokyo or Magic, have been around long enough to fall into the modern classic category. Even taking those into account, the game I have played this most is Evolution: The Beginning.

Having kids or maybe a group that likes different games to you will put you in this situation (not always a bad thing, I think, if you're able to enjoy just having fun with people).

Evolution: Climate is a favourite in our house but the crown would probably go to Carcassonne, I've had it as long as I've had my eldest kid and it's just been a regular fixture. Honourable mentions i should think to Zooloretto and Survive.

My youngest is probably the most voracious gamer and his favourites are Ivanhoe (he's a shark) and Roborally. If he keeps up his pattern they'll overtake those others (of they haven't already).

None of those are my favourites, and I may have played others more, i don't know, but they sure provide good memories of the kids growing up beating down dad at every opportunity.

According to my Boardgamegeek logs I've played about 2736 games of Netrunner. Given I've played it every week for atleast 5 years I'm fairly certain it's my most played boardgame.

I played Magic when I was a teen so it's probably my second most played game.

The next in line is Terraforming Mars. I've put 153 games into it. And that's just this year because I got it around this time last year. I'm a bit burned out of it, though, there's a very clear skill ceiling in this game that bothers me.

If CCGs count as boardgames, then my most-played game is easily Jyhad aka Vampire: the Eternal Struggle. I have no idea how many games I have played, but I played my first game in 1994 and my most recent game a few weeks ago. We had a weekly playgroup for many years, and while I didn't show up every week, I often got in 2 to 3 games every other week.

Second place would go to Arkham Horror 2nd edition. There are 49 characters, I think, and I have played each of them several times. Except for the promo character, who I keep forgetting even exists. My group played the base set alone at least 40 times, and then even more after the expansions started coming out.

Third place might be Camp Grizzly. It's very easy to get on the table, even with non-gamers.

It’s got to be Magic for me. I’ve only recently stopped playing it.

While the true answer is probably Descent: Journeys in the Dark, lately it's probably a toss-up between Cthulhu Wars and Spartacus. Both of these games really resonate with my group.

Descent was my first designer board game, and it saw a lot of table time, not just because we loved it, but it was the only game I had.

Blood Bowl probably has the most plays, but not with my group. Merchants & Marauders has had the most plays with the group and shows no sign of slowing. Runebound is probably is second place.

Not counting CCG's it's probably RoboRally. Second place could be Tigris & Euphrates or Fairy Tale.

I love the wide range of answers to this question! I knew my answer was something a bit odd, it's great to see such a selection!

Heroacape. Ive played in excess of 500 matches.
After that, Attacktix. At least 400.
After that it’s a toss up between Pandemic and Red November, with at least 200 each.
After that it’s Cyclades, El Grande, and a vast swath of short filler dice games.

Definitely Magic for me, though I can't say how much before I eventually quit.

I've been logging my games since 2005 and the big winner there is For Sale, which we used to use for rain dancing all the time. I have 60 logged plays of that. It's closely followed by Liar's Dice and then true solid board game Terraforming Mars.

My fairly regularly logged plays since 2008 tells me that my top five are
X-wing,
Innovation,
Pente,
Agricola,
Arkham Horror.

If I kick Pente off for not being modern it is replaced by Trains and Pandemic.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf at 128 plays. Good times.

I've played over 600 games of Race for the Galaxy if you count online play against a live opponent.

DreadBall: The Futuristic Sports Game = 164
Wiz-War (eighth edition) = 68
Qwirkle = 49
Heroscape Master Set: Rise of the Valkyrie = 46
Dungeon Saga: Dwarf King's Quest = 35

So says BGG, where I've been keeping track of games played since 2012.
I'm certain Heroscpae would surpass 200 if I had kept track. I played 'Scape until my fingers bled from 2005 - 2012.

Star Wars Epic Duels was played a hell of a lot too before 2012.
