Our Top 100 Games of All Time Revealed

top 100 games

Over the past several weeks, we’ve been releasing videos in a series highlighting our top 100 games of all time. We decided to compile a joint list consisting of games we enjoy playing together. While they aren’t all two player games, we know that we both enjoy them and will gladly play them any time.

In order to rank the games in the join list, we each ranked the games separately. Spencer ranked the list, and then Lara ranked the list. We averaged the ranks and voila, we have a top 100 list.

There were some ties that we had to break, and there were a few instances where we adjusted the final outcome slightly. However, the final list we agreed upon as an excellent example of compromise.

Below you will find our individual lists before we averaged them and made those slight adjustments. Thanks so much to all of you who have been watching our series. We’ve had an excellent time making it!

    Hello, first of all i love your Top 100. And also many of your tastes 😉
    But i dont understand some of your modifications on your Top 100 list.
    For example: How Flatline is #7 and #14 on your personal lists and end up to be #7 on your joint list!
    And for example Viral is #3 and #4 and end up to be #9 on your joint list.
    So you both prefer Viral than Flatline i assume, but on your Top100 list Flatline is ahead!!!
    I know its not only average but this doesn’t make any sense.
    Thank you and keep up the great work, bye.

      Hi Miguel!

      Sorry for the delayed response. When it game to our final rankings, we had to come to some decisions when there were ties. And in those discussions, we decided (as a couple) that some things should be moved around slightly since this was a joint list.

      Viral is a perfect example. I LOVE Viral, and Lara really likes it too, but as a two player game, it falls kind of flat because you have to use a dummy player.

      However, playing Flatline is much more enjoyable at two players, so it ended up higher on “The Married with Board Games” list, than our individual lists.

      I hope that helps a little bit! And thank you so much for watching!

    Wow I just have to ask, how is Star Wars Rebellion not on either list? My wife and I play games a lot and this is one of our favorites to play. Even though its against each other we still have a ton of fun.

    1. Spencer Williams Post author

      Well Tom, it probably would be…. we just haven’t played it yet. Doh!

      Our time to play games is scare and we aren’t sure how often we’d get this long game to the table. How long do you find it usually takes to play?

    Nice lists! I’m glad to find your blog. Spencer has Scythe and Viticulture in his top five! Awesome. Though I’ve never played Islebound. I’m going to have to give that a try. Also, I’m glad to see Burgle Bros in both lists. Keep up the good work.
