Is there any reasons why the big box doesn't have a ranking yet? It seems to have enough votes and it's not an expansion. I'm not 100% familiar with how rankings work so is there something I'm missing?

When something is a compilation (contains other things) it doesn't get ranked.

Should Viticulture Essential Edition be considered a compilation then and be removed from the rankings? It is Viticulture with parts of the Tuscany expansion added.

It's a weird combination with some rule tweaks, more a revised edition, it's not just the base game plus expansion like Puerto Rico Anniversary Edition.

So because it contains less than the individual components, it gets to be included in the rankings, but Carson City Big Box which (I think) contains more than the individual components, it gets excluded? That seems a little backwards. Personally, I think they both should be included.

You can submit a correction explaining your reasoning and it will be reviewed.

Thanks for the explanation. It was seeing the Viticulture essential edition that made me wonder.

It does contain the teacher and town hall cards which were not previously available. However you can buy them now seperately.

If the big box was released before the teacher and town hall expansion, would that have been enough for it to get a rating?

Are the river tiles also unavailable outside of the big box? It's hard to tell what parts of the Big Box are in the other expansions and what are not.
