Boardgames Geek Ranking (00041)

This dataset contains an election generated from board game charts.

The underlying board games data ( contains a weekly ranking of the 2000 most popular board games on between October 2018 and December 2021. We created a single election where each game is a candidate and each vote corresponds to the ranking of the games in one week.

The patch contains the raw election and a post-processed version where some candidates and voters are deleted to make the election complete.

This dataset is part of a larger study by Boehmer and Schaar (see this page for a more detailed description of the dataset, the post-processing, and pointers to similar datasets). If you have any questions, please contact:
