My ratings reference the scale suggested by BGG:
• 10 - Outstanding. Always want to play and expect this will never change.
• 9 - Excellent game. Always want to play it.
• 8 - Very good game. I like to play. Probably I'll suggest it and will never turn down a game.
• 7 - Good game, usually willing to play.
• 6 - Ok game, some fun or challenge at least, will play sporadically if in the right mood.
• 5 - Average game, slightly boring, take it or leave it.
• 4 - Not so good, it doesn't get me but could be talked into it on occasion.
• 3 - Likely won't play this again although could be convinced. Bad.
• 2 - Extremely annoying game. I plan never to play this again.
• 1 - Defies description of a game. You won't catch me dead playing this. Clearly broken.
