Alternate rating guidelines:
My rating scale is skewed lower in order to give more room at the higher end of the scale. Otherwise 90% of my games would be 7-9.
Games are rated for their target audience. A 10 kids or party game means for that group, not necessarily that I personally like it better than all other lower rated games.
10: Best game. Not just a favorite of mine, but one of the best games to be used for it's target audience.
9: Favorite game. One of my all-time personal favorites.
8: Great game. I'd almost always request this.
7: Very good game. I'll often request this.
6: Good game. I might request this, and would always be willing to play.
5: OK game. I probably wouldn't request it, but would be willing to play if someone else does.
4: Average game. I'm not that fond of it, but would still play.
3: Below average game. I would resist playing and need to be persuaded.
2: Poor game. Will strongly resist playing.
1: Bad game. I actively dislike this game.
