To be clear, we did not ask anyone to rate this game (the closest thing we did was tell a couple of playtesters that our game is listed on bgg). Aside from a couple of playtesters who we recognize, we do not know who the rest of the people are. I am a little perplexed at the random 10s (and 1s) as you are to be honest.
For what it's worth, the truth is we don't care about the initial rating anyways, and that is in no way part of our strategy or concern.
Like you, I don't understand where some people get games to rate (sometimes claiming to have played a game when I only have the only prototype and live far from me), and I don't mind those random 10's but the 1's I could do without
Remember, bgg has no way to patrol ratings, so no one should worry about the 1's unless there is some comments (which usually are not included in random 1's).
