Oh great, a cooperative legacy game might be replaced by... a cooperative legacy game.

Setting aside all the "cooperative puzzles", Twilight Struggle Through the Ages* is still leading the pack =P


* Hey, when did that happen? Grats to TtA.

In about November, if my memory doesn't fail me. I have been following it religiously, as TtA is probably my favorite versus game of all time

It first happened August 21 last year, but then quickly fell back to 3. Since September 12, 2016, however, it has retained the #2 position. Note that this is the new version of TtA, and the old version is #14.

I doubt it will happen any time soon. The game shot up through the ranks super quickly, but it's going to hit a wall due simply to not having enough reviews. I haven't done the math, but I'd guess it'd need about 5 times as many votes, which isn't going to happen until the reprint.

And I'm skeptical the average rating will stay the same as the game sees more exposure. That said, good on Gloomhaven, it's certainly my favorite game at the moment.

We saw lots of ratings shenanigans when Pandemic Legacy was nearing the top. Guaranteed we will see the same if/when Gloomhaven gets close to PL.

That wall is pretty high though. I don't think it can hit even #3 until the reprint, but I do think it's possible to hit the Top 5 based on Pandemic Legacy's ascension.

Posted elsewhere, but as a reference, Pandemic Legacy first reached #3 with 2405 votes and an 8.90 rating. It reached #2 with 2990 votes and an 8.83 average rating. It reached #1 with 4154 votes and an 8.73 rating.

Is there any web app that uses the BGG ranking algorithm to let you play around with "what ifs"? Like, where would a game with 1000 votes and a 10.0 rating fall? Or a game with 20,000 votes and a 7.6 rating. Would be kind of fun to play around with.

Gloomhaven should not focus on dethroning Pandemic:Legacy. Instead they should form a two-person party dedicated to building gaming addiction into people. I have started so many people with P:E, just to get them ready for a game like Gloomhaven.

Currently, #5.

Except that Gloomhaven is lots less of a Legacy-Game and more a massive campaign... and that there are tons of other differences between a game I rated 1 (horrid Pandemic) and Gloomhaven.

Gloomhaven is lots less a multiplayer-solitaire puzzle as everyone makes their own decisions and can't say I play this card easily, you should play that card.

I rated PL a 10 and I'm unapologetic. I fully expect Gloomhaven will get the same if it's as good as it feels like it will be... we'll wait and see.

I think that immersive co-operative story-based games are changing the face of board gaming for the better. I don't mind what order they end up in, they feel like a great 1-2 punch to me.

Both 10s for me!
