I couldn't find where to report this to (just trying to raise awareness at this point) - but sometime in the last 24 hours your site was hacked. They didn't try to hide it either, they put 17 of the worst games ever created in the history of mankind in the top 20 list. Effectively rendering the list useless.

Rank
1 Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 (2015)
2 Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization (2015)
3 Twilight Struggle (2005)
4 Terra Mystica (2012)
5 Star Wars: Rebellion (2016)
6 Scythe (2016)
7 7 Wonders Duel (2015)
8 Caverna: The Cave Farmers (2013)
9 The Castles of Burgundy (2011)
10 Puerto Rico (2002)
11 Agricola (2007)
12 Mage Knight Board Game (2011)
13 Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization (2006)
14 War of the Ring (Second Edition) (2012)
15 Blood Rage (2015)
16 Star Wars: Imperial Assault (2014)
17 Terraforming Mars (2016)
18 Power Grid (2004)
19 Eclipse (2011)
20 Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island (2012)


No shame. Seems like there is nothing but trolls and hackers on the internet these days.

Seems like more trolls than hackers, to be sure.

Now I really need to know which 3 of the top 20 aren't in the category of 'worst games ever created in the history of mankind' so that I can play those.

The hard part is agreeing on which 10. If only there was some sort of ranking system.

Antagonistic, insulting, or otherwise disruptive comments ARE NOT welcome here.

Please use the
icon when you see disruptive or antagonistic comments or any other violations of the Community Rules. This serves two purposes:

1- using the
icon will bring that post to the attention of forum moderators so they can deal with it appropriately. We prefer that you not respond to the post directly. Responding invites the offender to continue, and if you respond aggressively you may end up dragging yourself down with the offender.

2- if enough users flag a post using the
icon then that post will be hidden from general view, preventing others from being exposed to it.

Thanks!
