I'm a professional standardized test teacher. I teach the GRE, GMAT, and LSAT (no ACT or SAT, thank god ), and I also work on curriculum development projects and train teachers.

Please note that I use my own rating system for board games. The 1-10 scale has driven me crazy for years -- there just isn't that much granularity to my feelings for games. I rate games on a 1-4 scale, which I feel is sufficient to cover the essential opinions a man can have about a game:

4 - This game is amazing and I can't wait to play it
3 - This game is solid
2 - I'd tolerate this game, but I'd never request it
1 - I don't ever want to play this game

I do believe in the core philosophy of the BGG rankings -- that my rating should represent my excitement to play a game rather than some abstract notion of "quality." Thus, my ratings are pretty fluid and change over time. I don't update this profile much, though, so my rankings here aren't likely to reflect my ratings in real life.

My rating system on BGG maps as follows:

4 = 10
3 = 7
2 = 4
1 = 1
