With all the hype around this game, I was wondering what everyone thought the final overall rank will be.

What? I was thinking about what range it will settle around (as rankings can change)

I think it will break into the top 100, but not the top 75. Probably nestling in around 85 before some other similar game comes around and pushes it out of the top 100.

But this game is so hyped up right now that people may get it in their hands and realize it isn't as fun as it is beautiful. Either way, I can see it at least breaching the top 100 for a while.

I thought you were referring to the heat death of the universe and I was having trouble reconciling the MvM rating with deep time.

Geek Rating: 7.354

BGG loves coops. They love the price for this game. I think it'll hit top 50 for sure and to 20 wouldn't surprise me.

Will it deserve it? Who knows...

Agree with Ashley here all for the reasons why it will be pushed down, "All hype, no heart".

Not saying it isn't a good game, but rather I can see it getting repetitive and non-challenging after a few plays. It's well designed, but it doesn't look to have the strategic replay value it could have compared to the other mainstays of the top 100.

Although, I will be more than happy to be wrong.

I think that's yet to be seen with all the sealed missions and possibly major game play changes that might be hidden in those envelopes

I think it will go Top 50.

If Scythe can get to No.12 then anything is possible

The Gallerist is a better game. Design, box insert and components. Rank 97.

But it is gamers game. Guess MvM will be ranked higher. Doubt it will pass War of the Ring. A ton of minis and a well known theme. But no surprise if will be ranked higher in a period.

After a couple of years, my guess it will settle down at 50 -100.

Same thing I'd say about any game not yet released.
No idea.

I imagine it will be generally well-received, although not overwhelmingly positive like some games. Probably average rating around ~7.5. Might break into the top 100, but I don't expect it to get too high. You never know, though. A lot of effort clearly went into this product.

Top 25 is not out of the question, I can see top 12 if the scenarios are tight.

I am going to guess it will reach top 30 around November 13 and then will peak at 9 (overall) at the end of the year.

If it's as good as the reviewers are indicating, then 70-ish. Probably right around the same place as Arcadia Quest. Not saying they're the same game or even same mechanisms. But, I think they cater to the same demographic with what appears to be comparable quality.

It will break top 100 but it will drop out pretty soon.

Reasoning : all players eager to play this will play it and rate it pretty good.

After that it will be played by people who weren't so eager and the average rating will drop.

I probably order it and expect it to be 7.25 game.
I will not allways have the crowd to play it with.

I'm still waiting for the game to come, but I'd be happy if this was a top 100 game.

Definitely top 30 material here. The number of ratings will be a big factor in how high up it goes, and since 30k will be sold, and a good number of owners are (or will be!) BGGers, I won't be surprised if it moves even higher.

I have only completed 3 missions so far.

I think it will settle in as the Top programmable movement game even surpassing X-Wing. 42ish sounds about right.

If they expand this game we can be looking at Top 25. This game is screaming for an expansion and I am not sure if there is currently enough "meat" for many gamers. The game needs H2H, capture the flag(bomb), or other game modes.

There's not quite 1,600 BGGers that indicate they own the game. Maybe some haven't updated their collection and are waiting until they have it in their hands. But, it's possible that BGG users only make up a small number of the 30k.

Just based on other games, it needs at least 3,000 ratings averaging 8+ to break the top 50. 7,000 ratings averaging over 8+ to break the top 30. Obviously, more ratings will allow it to slip more.

Also, keep in mind that not everyone who owns a game on BGG rates that game. Just looking at random games it looks like about 1/4 of owners have rated their games.
