I'm sorry, but I don't trust people who only rate Pandemic Legacy a 6.

I can't help but think people went to downrate Pandemic, as it suddenly jumped down by a few points when it's been stable for so long, likely to ensure that gloomhaven passes it today. Not happy about that.

Regardless, Gloomhaven taking the top spot is well deserves and was bound to happen. I have two copies, have played a whole lot with one crew and can't wait to start with another. Congratulations, Isaac. You have created something truly special.

If you sort the ratings to just look at "1" ratings, there are a TON dated Dec 2017, and specific comments that they were rated that way to let Gloomhaven take the #1 spot.

Shame, people.

If a game is going to take the #1 spot, which Gloomhaven probably would have anyway, let it do it on it's own merits instead of pushing down the competition.

Congratulations to Isaac! I liked Pandemic Legacy Season 1, but Gloomhaven has so much more depth and value in my opinion. Glad to see it on top!

OP's rating is funny enough also dec 17

Well, the same thing happened when PanLegacy took the number one spot. Twilight Struggle, Panlegacy 1 and Gloomhaven are all fantastic and deserving titles.
Congratulations to Isaac who took a risk in creating something so large and unique, glad it paid off

To be fair when Pandemic Legacy took the 1 spot Twilight Struggle had the same thing happen to it. Also if you look at the Gloomhaven scores there are a ton of 1 votes for the purpose of preventing its rise. This is just the nature of the rating system here on BGG and as far as I’m concerned it all ends up being a wash since there are passionate people doing it for all the popular games (both up and down voting).

There definitely was some strange ratings movement the last few days for both games (gloomhaven almost stopped moving for 4 days) - but for some reason there was a huge surge of votes yesterday for Gloomhaven (I think around 200 votes?) and even if PL1 had stayed steady (at 8.499) Gloomhaven would have been #1 today with the jump to 8.508 it just had.


Ratings aside what matters the most is what people feel about the games they play - their own rating is the one they should care about however different it might be from the overall rating.

I love Gloomhaven and just want to congratulate Isaac on his success and thank him for making such a fun game that so many of us love. I personally think it's a well deserved #1

Not that I mind, Gutripper, but did you have to take my gyazo for this post? Couldn't you have made your own?

When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom!? No! It’s when… they are forgotten.

Just took this screenshot. How is Gloomhaven #1 on the list of games and yet #2 in the overall rank on it's entry page? Shouldn't they be the same?

You're right. It's maybe a 7. It's Pandemic + Common Tropes. At the end of the day though, it felt almost identical to regular Pandemic. Every single storytelling element has been overused (and overused recently) in movies, videogames, and books. The "new" rules" don't really kick in until the end game, and even then they were predictable. The falling cities was cute but just modified movement.

It was a cool advancement in gaming, but I'm more thankful to it for opening the floodgate of new possibilities (Charterstone for one) than for actually doing anything well. That said I'm liking Season 2 much more. It at least had the courage to do something distinct from base Pandemic.

I think the rating on the actual game page takes a little time to update. Probably to prevent it from jumping back and forth.

Yeah funny enough I rated loads of games over the Christmas holidays, if you love Pandemic Legacy good for you, but I wasn't a fan of it for many reasons.

Am I on trial here for rating PL1 a 6 suddenly? Come on BGG you're better than that!

Was going to post the same observation.
It seems there is some delay in the synchronization of data.

Yay! I have been waiting for this for a long time. Gloomhaven really deserves it! While Pandemic: Legacy S1 was revolutionary and very well designed, Gloomhaven just has so much more to offer: much more theme (with a lot of custom art, better storytelling bits, higher involvement with the leveling-up of characters), variety (character customization, combos, enemies, maps), replayability (a ton of scenarios and characters, solo/casual mode, extensibility), etc. Add to it that you don't require a permanent group to play, and that the hidden information mitigates quarterbacking. And I personally feel like the core mechanics of Pandemic, while offering a solid coop gateway/family experience, do fall flat after some time in comparison with the adventure-filled, puzzle-based adventuring in Gloomhaven. Awesome news!

As much as a 6? whistle

Seriously though, having played Pandemic, I have zero desire to play Pandemic Legacy and therefore won't rate it. Too many childish 1 ratings have been applied to both games.
