If I love this game in the top 25 - what should I play?
- Erik Anderson Sundén(pastej)Sweden
This list is based on the average ratings of BGG users that have rated the top 25 ranked games. I have created similar lists before.
For each game in the top 25 I've followed the same procedure:
1. Download all ratings of all the users that have rated the game of interest.
2. Divide the users into two groups:
- The love group: These users have rated the game of interest a 8 or higher.
- The hate group: These users have rated the game of interest lower than 6.
3. Find which games that have more than 20 votes in both of the groups.
4. Calculate the average rating for each game for both groups.
5. Calculate the rating difference of the two groups for each game, referred to as diff below.
6. For the love group, find the ten games with the average ratings above 7 with the highest diff values.
For each game in the lists the average rating of the love group and the hate group is presented, as well as the difference of the two groups. The higher the difference, the better the ranking is.
This list is intended to guide people who are looking for new games and want to be guided by their love for the top 25 games. If you love a game, look at the list of that game for inspiration. If you hate a certain game in the top 25 I guess you can use these lists as a "guide of avoidance".
If you have other opinions than this analysis or just would like to give another suggestion for games that play similarly to the listed games, please post a comment under the corresponding game.
