What's a DRG?

Simply, it is a list used to define the dynamic parameters of a review.

I select a game, then setup a base rating of 0 and start adding and subtracting from this rating according to comparisons and relationships to other games or based on various factors.

Let me do a quick... err... physical example.

Let's take Milla Jovovich.

Then, I add another girl with blue eyes to the list and write "+1 If you like blue eyes".

Then, I add a busty model to the list and "-1 if you like..." err... "big things".

And so on.

You read all the parameters and summarize the score to understand if the girl... EHM... game is for you or not (more or less): just check if the result is positive or negative.

In addition you can check the amount of thumbs-up for each "parameter" in order to "weight" them.

I hope it is clear and I don't have to make another example... blush

I'll start with the most discussed game of this month: Dominion

Let's try... cool

Considering that the game is quite known I'll just add 4 parameters (the most obvious ones), leaving space for other BGGrs to add their own.

-1 if you don't like using card sleeves.

(you are continously shuffling cards in Dominion. You HAVE to use card sleeves, otherwise you have to buy another copy of the game every 2-3 months...)

+1 if you like original mechanics

(the core mechanic in Dominion, the deck building, is implemented in a very original way, although the mechanic itself is very old)

+ 1 if you like highly expandable games

(expansion sets, promo-cards, stand-alone compatible games... if you are looking for a very expandable game, Dominion is for you)
