Your ratings on games are most likely incorrect. Please reference my ratings and adjust yours accordingly. I expect a standard deviation from mine to be at no more than .01%.

Note, without these important changes here at BGG, we can:

1. No longer be geek buddies
2. Not take your ratings seriously
3. Have new games I have yet to play rated higher than old games I am certain are better
4. Not have a viable system that serves our best interests


Thanks you for you compliance.

Best Regards,

Hubris Games

I expect you have a bigger sigma variation than that between left and right brain in your own head. Pride should require you to unfriend yourself - if not we are coming to reclaim the term hubris.

With all these requirements, it is important to remember:

The only winning move is to not play.

I get the joke, don't think it deserves its own thread.

Maybe we should make a thread about people making threads about people complaining about ratings. devil

A certain general has determined that all ratings should be the same. Failure to stay within these guidelines can result in personal opinions and will be frowned upon. Don't let this happen to you!

Thanks for the heads up. You were right... I had Terraforming Mars rated as a 9. I took your advice and referenced your ratings. I see you have it listed as a 5.5. That prompted me to adjust my rating accordingly, so I bumped it up to a 9.5.

Sounds like a plan. Let me know when you adjust your ratings to match mine.

I can only do this one time as an exception and personal favor if you raise your rating for Candyland from a 2 to an 8. I have not yet rated Candyland, as I was unware that Candyland would ever be rated by anyone, but now instead intend to use it as a barometer for compliance.

Please do not take this act as one of weakness but instead let it serve as an olive branch to healing.

Meh, no joke really.

On the other hand the Norwegian guy from a couple days ago had the funniest thread I've ever seen. I was roaring with laughter as long as I allowed myself to believe he was genuine and not just trolling for the sake of it.

Every game has a single true, objective rating. This can only be determined by exhaustive investigation of the game's components and facets, followed by lengthy philosophical introspection. Crude methods of assessment such as actually playing the game will only lead to false, bias-ridden rating scores.
