Agreed, very well deserved. And congrats as well to the game's amazingly good review in Spielbox. 13 folks rated it and it averaged better than 9 out of 10! That just doesn't happen in Spielbox--an average rating as high as 8 is very unusual. Probably the best group of ratings I've seen since I subscribed.

Top 100 undervalues the game though. The average rating of 8.10 places RR at #16 in the rankings of all games which have at least as many votes as it has. So the game may be destined for top 20 status, once it has the necessary vote numbers.

Early adopters are the people most likely to love a game. The people who haven't sought a game out, who haven't bought it, are likely to rate it lower. So as more users are exposed to the game, the ratings start to shift away from early adopters to a more mainstream crowd, and the rating usually dips.

I for one think this game is wicked overrated. It's just another worker placement game without anything really original about it.

But it does what it does well. A game doesn't have to be original to be good.
