I really liked Dane Peacock's list "The Top Three (plus bonus) most reliable BGG reviewers of all time" http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=32... which highlighted eight significant BGG reviewers: Tom Vasel, Chris Farrell, Greg Schloesser, Derk Solko, Chuck Blahous, Morgan Dontanville, Joe Gola, and Shannon Appelcline.

Dane suggested that it might be interesting to see which games these eight reviewers disagree the most about, using standard deviation. Hence this list!

Data is as of September 7, 2004. Games were chosen from the 138 for which at least four reviewers posted a rating.

Standard Deviation: 1.87 (5 ratings)

Derk=3.0 "The standard 'evilate that person because he's gonna win, oh, evilate that person because he's gonna win, oh look, someone just happened to finish this blasted game' type of card game..."

Greg=6.5 (No Comment)

Morgan=7.5 "Very nice tactical game where all players are trying to dump their cards. All the special powers create a nice feel of intrigue and story in the court and its surroundings..."

Shannon=7.0 "I've only ever played this as two-players, but it has some enjoyable & thoughtful tactics, though I have questions about its ultimate replayability..."

Tom=8.5 "Very fun - there isn't much hype about this game, but it's one that plays extremely well with 2 players, but is also fun for 5!..."

Chris=4.0 "Too much mechanism, not enough fun..."

Derk=9.0 "Of the often-grouped Tikal, Mexica, & Java, I think this one's my favorite..."

Greg=7.5 (No Comment)

Tom=7.5 "This game is superb! The only reason I won't give it a higher score is because with some people, the game is R-E-A-L-L-Y slow..."
