Wow, shows how surprisingly strong 2020 turned out to be.  We posted our top 12 here:

We definitely had some crossovers: 

Oceans, The Crew, Viscounts & Lost Ruins all made our list. 

Had we played Dune: Imperium last year, it would definitely have made it up there. 

Thanks for compiling and sharing the interesting list!

Love to see some love for Oceans! That one feels like it went under the radar for a lot of people, but I think it's so good.

Agreed!  It is absolutely gorgeous and those Deep cards jack up the player experience to 10. Every game we have played has been completely different -- my two sons are away right now but when they are back, I want to get some more Oceans to the table

I'd love to get a 3 or 4 player game in some time soon. It's been probably a couple of months since I played. I'm sure my wife would be down to play it with me, but I like it better with 3 or 4

Dwellings of Eldervale was my #1 of the year. Such a great game!

This is awesome! I skimmed through it but will have to give it a proper look through some time after work!

Always interesting to see these amalgamations!

I've played 3, 4, & 6 and they are definitely worthy of top 10 of 2020.  Looks like I have a lot more to check out!

1 and 2 are very good but both beaten by beyond the sun. That game has been sadly neglected.

Really? I feel like I've seen that one on a ton of top of the year lists
