are now strictly by the recommended BGG scale, with one exception: if I've gotten considerable prior enjoyment from a game, the lowest I'll rate it is a 6, regardless of how little I might want to play it right now. I am trying to avoid ambivalence, so no 5s, and I can't think of any games I "always" want to play, so no 10s either...but one is getting close.My Top 10
consists of games I'll probably add to next year's 10x10 Challenge (Hard Core). These are games I typically play at home or online, so I should feel pretty comfortable saying I'll get all ten of these in. Missing (since it's an RPG) is my ongoing Masks of Nyarlathotep PbF campaign
.My Hot 10
are games I'm planning on adding to a second 10x10 Challenge (Normal) next year. These are popular games among fellow local gamers that I feel like I can commit to playing ten times. Due to fluctuations in interest, attendance, etc. this list is more aspirational. I think I'll get ten games played ten times, but it might not be these particular games.
