  3. An Infamous Traffic
  4. This Guilty Land
  5. Mage Knight

Trent (I may change the order on the top five if I’m cutting to 3)

  1. Container
  2. Rolling Stock
  3. Yomi
  4. Glory to Rome / Innovation
  5. Android Netrunner

T.C.

  1. Rex/Dune
  2. Andean Abyss
  3. Churchill
  4. Arkham Horror
  5. Age of Industry/Brass
