The "Overall" score is not an average or amalgam of the subscores. Instead, it's a look at how fun the game is to play. It's a measure of expected enjoyment, and thus differs from the BGG scale (which is more focused on desire to play).
The "Spite" score is a measure of the availability of actions that do more to harm an opponent than to help you. In other words, how much of a "take that" element does the game have? And unlike the other scores, it is a quantitative rather than qualitative measure.
Finally, after compiling this list, I was struck by how my views of boardgaming and how my tastes have changed. My earliest reviews were a little inflated. While I chalk that up to enthusiasm with the hobby in general, I've tried to note corrections as experience has informed them.
