Alfred, Come Down Here.

A blog to chronicle the gaming exploits of a small group of Portland board gamers who are a little too obsessed with Christian Bale's Batman voice.

What You Got There, Numbers?
aka "Alfred, come down here and bring your calculator."

For whatever reason, I've made it a point to log each play of every game we've ever played, including: who won; game length; year of game's publishing and other data. I've compiled all of this into a spreadsheet which churns the numbers and pumps out statistics for various aspects of those games. And so, I introduce to you, every statistic I could think of for every game our group has played. Enjoy!

The Top Games for Each Player
I have created an algorithm which calculates a player's rating for each game that they've played. It takes into account: number of players in each game; wins for each game; total number of games played. It also compensates for "beginner's luck." Below are the top games (in order) for each player using this formula. Note: These aren't to compare players and see who's better than whom; it's more for the interest of seeing those games in which each player excels.

Our Favorite Games
For every game we play, we rate it on a scale from 1 to 5 — 1 being equivalent to scalding hatred and 5 equivalent to wanting to play it as much as physically possible. I've entered these ratings into a highly technical spreadsheet (separate from the other spreadsheet) in order to calculate our groups favorite games. It takes into account: the overall average rating for that game; each user's average rating; how many people rated it; and other factors. This gave me a list of every game we've played from top to bottom. Some games with high average ratings may be far down on the list because only a couple people have played them. So, this list should reflect those games that we enjoy as a group.
