Most-played Boardgames of 2012

Here are the ten boardgames I played the most over a year with about one gaming session a week.

These are mostly short games that you can play repeatedly in one evening. The longer games that we played more than twice were Last Night on Earth and Yggdrasil. I played 74 different boardgames in 2012. Looking back since mid-2008, the number is 171.
