What game in your collection do you despise so much that you're bitter enough to rate it a 1? For me it's mouse trap. I absolutely despise this game (if you could even call it that). Let me travel along the board pointlessly until the end while my kids repeatedly set off the half built contraption until the marbles are rolling all around the floor so I have to keep rebuilding it until the end when we go around in a circle over and over until the trap moves awkwardly and doesn't work correctly at the one moment when we are SUPPOSED to set it off. Worst game ever made.

What do you rate a 1?

Cards Against Humanity, but not because it's cool to hate on CAH, I just no longer enjoy playing it.

Dark Souls: The Board Game because it was wasted material, turned into a rushed and poorly tested game.

I'm still having some fun with it. But it should have been much, much more.

Finished! For me, this simply doesn't qualify as a game.

If they're the only reviewer, sure I can agree with that. But, I'd hate to think a designer is creating a game they don't like... I expect the designer to rate their own game a 10.

National Trash - Didn't really expect much from this and got even less.

Quests of the Round Table - I was surprised how broken the core mechanism was for this one.

The Oregon Trail Card Game is a shameless and opportunistic cash in that relies solely on the nostalgia of kids who played it in school. The game has absolutely zero redeeming qualities. Even a bad game can have some modicum of entertainment but The Oregon Trail Card Game managed to defy that minimal expectation. The game literally makes me feel embarrassed when I see it in the store, because I know some unsuspecting and hopeful person will buy it and will put in honest effort to try to enjoy it before coming to the inevitable realization that they wasted both their money and their time. They’ve been scammed. It makes me cringe. I have seen dog shit on the ground that was more interesting than that game, at least it doesn’t ask you for $10 bucks and an hour of your time.

Exploding Kittens. There's no game; it's Russian roulette with cards. If there's no game in the game, then it's a failure and thus a 1. It even has the drawback that you are still alive afterwards and might be asked to play it again.

Greedy Greedy Goblins I don't really rate games anymore to be honest, but this game was beyond terrible. Speed and memory and quick reaction. Not fun.

Worst. Game. Ever.

So far .... none. Given a few 2s, to games that were at least actual games, but complete shit games.

Anything worse than those, I can't imagine taking the time to find them and rate them.

FWIW I also have no 10s.

I do need to catch up on rating the collection, so maybe later.

John, who rates modestly

LCR. It isn't a game, just an activity. I don't find it any fun, but my wife's family does, so it takes away time from playing real games so they can gamble on random outcomes that take way longer to resolve than they should.

Yeah, only if they're the only reviewer. I expect the designer to like their own game. I do not expect them to review it on BGG as they are obviously biased!

Of course once hundreds of reviews pour in, then their one review has very little impact

I still have Star Fleet Missions set at 1. I did this mostly because I don't believe it was really created to be a game. I think it was created as a set of collector cards which attempted to reflect the relative strengths and abilities of the ships as depicted in the shows and other games, and not to be a playable game. There is no balance in the factions and no real "game" there, you merely match abilities to requirements on the mission cards, which are also there to remind you of Star Trek scenarios, so it got the 1.

Pete (kept the cards for what they are, but will never actually play with them as a game)

Games from scumbag publishers.

Usually I deliver my scorn for the bad games themselves via '2'.

Its not in my collection but I'd rate Magic Maze a 1. I just don't see what all the hype is about and I actively disliked everything about my one and only play. To each their own...

Literally in my collection, I have none. Why on Earth would I own a game that I rate a 1?

In the broader sense of BGG collection, I have 11 games rated a 1. Quite simply, I rate a game a 1 if it has no positive qualities (great art or components are enough to raise it to 1.5 or 2 for me). The famous ones among them are Exploding Kittens, Zombie Dice, Dungeon Fighter and Dungeon Roll. Most of the others are Brazilian games.

That's funny because I would happily rate it a 10. I have almost 40 plays.

There is something for everyone I guess.

I haven't played a broken game yet so no 1's from me. Blueprints is my least favourite game.

None. I don't consider any game broken. As close as it gets is We Didn't Playtest This At All and that's the point so it is working as intended. Now 2s...

I only have one 1, Trump: The Game, and that was political pique. I gave Victory in Europe a 2 because it was dreck that I sadly Kickstartered. Next I have a few 3s (including CaH). I tend not to play games that I'll end up rating a 1 or 2.

I have not rated anything a 1, but I do have Quao in my collection and rated it a 2. It came in a box of mystery games from tanga.com and I just have not gotten rid of it yet.
