A note on my ratings: Since I've had a number of queries about why I rated a specific game in a specific way, I feel obliged to note that, while I simply try to follow the BGG guidelines, this apparently makes me a tough grader. My average board game ranking is a 5.8. I know that when a lot of folks give a board game a 5, that's a condemnation, but I mean that to be pretty middle of the road in accordance with the formal rating definitions - a 5 doesn't mean that I disliked a game or thought it was bad, it just means that it didn't stand out or excite me. And they can't all stand out or excite me. On a related note, that means that a 6 actually means something positive. Not as much as a higher number, of course, but remember that a 6 is better than average on this scale.
