Recently Played Games:
My use of the BGG rating system is below in case you came along because of how I rated a game and were curious.
2 - Very bad game. I will not play this game unless threatened with permanent bodiy injury.
5 - Ok game. I will sometimes be ok with playing it, sometimes I will pass.
8 - Good game. These are games I would own. Games I almost always enjoy, though the it may be situation dependent.
10- Excellence in gaming. This is for a select few games that I enjoy the most.
Why no 0, 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, or 9 ratings? I do not use the ratings to judge games incrementally against one another, i.e. ranking, and this system is easy to use and basically places games in 4 categories - bad, average, good, great. That works for me. The values I use match up closely with the BGG system, which is better than going with a 1, 2, 3, 4 star type rating as far as being consistent with BGG.
