Hard to create a top 10, We have a small group we play with and try to play a lot of things. You have a pretty good list - I’m especially keen toward A Feast for Odin.

Been playing Star Wars: Outer Rim and Dinosaur Island, lately.

Sid Meier's Civilization is an absolutly fantastic game.
Takes a few hours to get through the instructions and and first games, but absolutely worth it.

Note: There are 2 games with very similar names, i mean this one. The other one is supposedly very bad.

Current list of what I have been playing!

Zombies!!!
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/2471/zombies

A very fun zombie survival tile and playing card based boardgame, with the base game offering two alternate win conditions [Kill 20 zombies or reach the helipad tile]. Me and my friends still argue how the cards "Alternative Food Supply" and "The keys are still in it!" interact with one another to this day.

Tales of the Arabian Nights
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/341 ... ian-nights

A choose your own adventure boardgame with a crazy amount of replayability. The book that comes in the box with every encounter is an inch thick! Our last game took 4 hours to complete.

Settlers of Catan
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/13/catan

Just like craps at the casino! Rolling a 7-out starts fights IRL.

Pandemic
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/30549/pandemic

Some people want to save the world, others want to spread platypus fever like a venereal disease.

Monopoly
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/185 ... rs-edition

How to crush the late game:
Step 1: Buy all of the orange properties.
Step 2: Build houses when people are attempting to leave jail.
Step 3: ????
Step 4: Profit.

you know now that i see monopoly here.

there is a book by a british pHD mathematician that amongst other things has 1 chapter of statistical analysis on monopoly:
https://www.amazon.de/dp/1784162744

a very good book that explains mathematical concepts in a fun and interesting way and on a site note can also help you win monopoly :D
