I just wanted to direct everyone to the left hand side of your screen and note that Too Many Bones is rising up "The Hotness" chart, currently at 23rd place.

That is all.

I think that it's based off of the number of people visiting a games page within BGG. It's mostly a cosmetic thing in all honesty. It has no overall effect on a game. Other than some people will be looking at that side and wonder what it is.

If a game ever deserved to be noticed it is Too Many Bones.

Onwards and upwards!

Very smart move to get Ricky and MvM videos--both very highly respected producers. If anything, it changed my "haha, no" at seeing the ads and sticker price to a deep breath and click on the purchase button. With addons!

Super impressed.

It's based on a lot of things. Discussion, videos, clicks, etc. It's mostly meaningless to you as gamers, but it's a big deal for game companies. The additional eyes and attention is huge in helping us to continue to grow as a company

Thank you all for your enthusiasm!

OK. Makes sense. After all, there are a few items from CTG that I don't have YET.

Someone posted the variables of the Hotness formula before. Some of them are "How many fans of the game", "How many threads", "How many comments on pics". Even if a game is unpopular but there is a kerfuffle of discussion on why people think it is bad, it can still be #1 on the hotness.

For me the hotness implies the game is of interest (in a good way) and one I should look out for but in reality it might have risen to the top due to negative comments. Over the years, I have put less emphasis on what is in the hotness list.
