I think that stats should be based on the demographics. I am sure the board games I play here in the USA, aren't the same that my fellow humans play in say Thailand, or India.

It would be a cool feature to add a data questionaire (optional of course) to this forum... We could gather info about our specific locations at least. The only issue with that is the fact that it wouldn't be a good cross section of the populus.
