If I had kept track of the hours I've spent tabulating votes on the list, I think you would probably take back the self-serving bit though!
One of the most common questions about any game, is with what # of players it plays best with. This thread title states what the consensus is so far on Reef Encounter. I do, legitimately want poeple's views on what it plays best with. So I don't think I have done anything wrong whatsoever.
The list has been recommended enough to be in the top 50 all-time, and I would like to fill-out the votes on the games I have included before I expand it again. Eventually I would like to include the top 700 BGG games
