Why aren't you PLAYING a game?
mbmbmbmbmb
Game Player. Game Maker. Game Fanatic.

A bit on my use of the BGG Rating System. For me, 7+ is a game I'm likely to keep and play for some time. Anything below a 7 for me is a game that I'm likely going to trade away or sell - unless my family likes it, has sentimental value, or is being used as research. I use half-point to show games that fit between the values for me - not quite this, but better than that.

I haven't found a 10 that stays a 10. Perhaps I'm just not ready to declare the perfect game. Conversely, I haven't found a game that's a 1. Maybe I'm just avoiding them?

Lately, I've found myself steering toward lighter games for some reason. Probably because I'll have more chance to play it. But I do like a good meaty game when I can get it.

I don't have any problem rating a game after a single play. In fact, I enjoy doing just that to see how my rating changes over time.

I would love to write more reviews, but feel like my position as a game designer would be viewed as an axe-grinder or sycophant. At times, I venture out just the same. Some things just need to be said.
