There have been several geeklists recently attempting to list 10 games that are representative of each of the 10 BGG game ratings. They often produce arguments, suggesting that they might, in fact, not set the standard. I would like to definitively solve this problem, so that such lists will no longer be needed.

If we want to choose games that will set a representative standard, then let's pick games we can all agree on. I have done careful research about what everybody in the entire world likes, and here is what I found:

1. Some people refuse to play this game and rate it a 1, because it just doesn't work for them to have that many rules, cards to track, and dice rolling. We can all agree that some people hate this game so much that they correctly rate it a 1.

2. Some people admit that this is a game, but they hate it so much that they never want to play it. We can all agree that some people will never play this game and thus correctly rate it a 2.
