Does anyone know the highest rated games? The rating that is in a hexagon at the top of the games page.

Click on the "Browse" tab at the top of the page, then click "Games." That will bring up the list of games ordered by Geek rating. If you want them ordered by the Average rating, click on the "Average" tab. That won't tell you much, though, because games with a single rating of 10 will be at the top of the list.

Dang. I am a little disappointed. I didn't realized that any game with only a couple ratings on there could have a high rating.

That is what the Geek rating is for. BGG uses geek rating whenever games are compared in lists by default. The geek rating is dependent of how many ratings there are.

If you want somewhat meaningful info from the average rating, use the Adv. Search button (highlighted in yellow next to the search bar). You can select the mechanisms, categories or subdomains you're interested in if you wish.

However, most importantly, in the Average User Rating Range line, add values between 6 and 9 and then to the with at least ..... user ratings box at least 50 if you want some new games included, 100 is what I get the most out of.

Hope the results give you what you are looking for.

But such games will not have Ranking until there are at least 30 Ratings.

You can also find about a dozen other lists of statistical curiosity and interest if you use menu picks at the top of this page:


Misc > Stats > Top 10s

If you're looking for games which have high ratings from only their Kickstarter backers, this works great.

I guess some games from KS might have that problem. However, Gloomhaven made it deservedly to a TOP10 ranked game just from KS backers alone and the 7th continent is similarly climbing up with the #146 spot atm.

If something catches your eye, you should start reading comments and reviews to make sure the game is something you're interested in and that the average rating is justified.

On an unrelated note, you'd better get your dogs out of the sun. I think they're melting. (Super-cute avatar picture, by the way).
