Conesy’s Stunning Tabletop Gaming Statistics for 2023

It’s been another year of playing games and logging all of those plays. I am still amazed at the types of insights that can be derived from these logged stats. Often, I find myself surprised when looking at the stats. Games that, as a reviewer, I may not have thought were that great may show up with a lot of plays. Meanwhile, games I thought were brilliant may only receive a single play. Logging gameplay is not something everyone should or would want to do, but I share some of the insights derived as I wrap up 2023.

Traditionally, I log all of my stats on BoardGameGeek’s website using the native BGG tools. Moving forward in 2024, I will be using a new App, BGG Catalog, which Suzanne has used for quite some time. There are versions of the App for both Android and iPhone users so give it a try if you are interested in logging your games.

Some interesting statistics jump out immediately:

  • I played over 480 games
  • I played over 138 unique games.
  • May was my best gaming month, with 60 games played.
  • My collection grew by approximately 66 games, toping now at 731 titles, including expansions.
  • Less than half of my plays were via online platforms

Most Played Game – Ark Nova

It’s no surprise to me that Ark Nova from Capstone Games/Feuerland Spiele was played the most. Not only was it my 2022 game of the year, but it also was implemented on Board Game Arena, where I was able to play it 57 times. While I had 5 in-person plays of Ark Nova, it didn’t get to the table as much as I would have liked. It’s a little tricky to fit in a weekly game night, especially if we need to teach it which has made it a bit harder to table.

I enjoyed this game so much that I immediately wrote a review of Ark Nova for this blog. I am still very high on this game, though my online play has slowed. With the release of the Marine Worlds expansion, which I also think is brilliant for the game, I am hoping to have this game hit the table a few more times in 2024.
