After careful considerations, I have decided to compose my own rating scale, since I feel that the BGG suggestions are not applicable in many cases. Hence, I have decided to go with a more objective rating system. Here it goes:1
denote a total lack of respect for the consumer3
refer to games that I personally think that should not have been released5
signal that it is best to try before you buy7
refer to good games that are worth playing and collecting10
Awful component quality2
There are an abundance of incomprehensible or ambiguous rules.
The game defeats its own purpose. It is broken and should have been scrapped in its infancy.4
The game is either tediously long or has highly frustrating aspects.
A mixed bag. It could be enjoyable but there are aspects that are really detracting.6
Good idea and decent execution but there is room for improvement (enrichment or streamlining).
A well rounded game. A good choice for a sizeable collection.8
Succeeds in being one of the best games from its category or family.9
An epitome of replay-ability. Engaging in every way. Has no real shortcomings.
Excellent production quality (components & storage)
