This is just a list for fun to see who has the highest similarity or dissimilarity with other users according to their game ratings.

Here is the GeekList that inspired this one.
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/258134
I just finally got around to making a GeekList of the results.

Use the tool at
http://www.lautapelaaja.net/bgg/correlation.php
to see which users you are most like (+) or unlike (-). The farther away from zero the higher the correlation.
Wikipedia reference for non-stat geeks:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Correlation

Use a minimum of 75 games, leave 2nd box blank to compare to all users. Say which user is your most similar and which most dissimilar along with numbers. And if you know the user let us know. Use your highest rated game between you and your most similar user as your entry for the list. Just feed the name of your most similar user back into the tool in the 2nd box to see the game by game comparisons.

I have found this tool very useful for picking new games. I have added all users with a high correlation (significant) as Geek Buddies and created a group for them. Now when I see an interesting game I can get a rating from just those that rate games like me. I have even added this metric (name GBr for Geek Buddy rating) to the comments section on my Wish List. Now I can immediately see how the overall BGG community rates a game and those that rate it similar to me.

Disclaimer:
I hope this doesn't cause bandwidth issues with the correlation tool.

So this is what I got:

Quote:
Sorry, there wasn't any people with enough common games with you. 50 is lowest possible limit and if you can't get anything with that, I'm sorry - but in the other hand, the correlations with such a low number of common games are fairly pointless anyway.


I ran it twice, with 75 and 50 games.

Somehow it seems appropriate that I found a game with no owners or pictures to match.

I don't know either of them personally. I have read both of them quite extensively and neither result surprises me. I imagine that there are many people who are even more dissimilar, but because they are so dissimilar have not rated or even played 75 games in common.

What is somewhat funny about the numbers is that not everyone uses the rating system in the same way. clearclaw, for instance, treats the scale as logarithmic while mine is more linear.

Jeff describes himself as an omni-gamer and I'm a specialist in most styles too.

Dean likes Arkham Horror, Pandemic and Notre Dame. I was hoping my anti-twin would be more of a hardcore efficiency gamer.

Okay, this isn't what you're looking for, but I felt it fit the subject line.

My user Twin is Kiyote. Why? We share the exact same real name: Todd Lang. We peacefully co-exist because he gets Canada and I get USA.

As for your correlation rating?

I have my evil twin: bucklen_uk 0.01
Pretty impressive to have that little in common.

Can anyone beat .01?

His ratings of some excellent games are quite harsh:
Acquire 3 (come on!)
Attika 3
Container 3
Cosmic Encounter 4
Digging 3
Diplomacy 2
Saint Petersburg 3
San Juan 3

And he gives one of my favorite games, Settlers, a 3 (2 for the expansion).yuk

But then he gives these decent games perfect scores:
Jambo 10
Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation 10
