The game arrived at my door yesterday, just in time for Halloween! I look forward to playing it. Hopefully my experience will prove (at least for me) that this game is better than the 7.0 rating it's garnered so far.

The theme is spot-on, the artwork looks great, and from skimming the rulebook, the game system looks to be refreshing.

Edit: Below, Magic Pink has rightfully called me out WRT my lamenting of the 7.0 rating. So I added some elaboration, in my post below.

uh...

7 is a really good rating. There's absolutely nothing wrong if it stays at a 7.

I guess it all depends on what scale people are using. A lot of folks have their own personal scale for games while others (like myself) use the BGG scale.

But I agree a 7 is a good rating.

That's a very fair comment, but my experience has been that the good games with staying power have an average user rating in the 7.2-7.3 range, or above.

So you caused me to take a look at my own collection, and you have a point... while most of my games have an avg user rating of 7.4 or above, there are several in my collection - which I enjoy a lot - that are rated even below a 7.0!

So your point is valid.

Thusly let me re-phrase my OP... given that, based on what I know of this game, I would've expected it to rated higher than a 7.0 ... more like around a 7.4!
