Can someone explain to me why Space Hulk having made the most meteoric rise in BGG history in the last month is barely featuring in Grimwold's new to me best game September list. I mean I know it's a reprint but surely it's new to many of the people who are rating it. Is there more to Space Hulk's rise than meets the eye? Are we in need of another BGG conspiracy theory?

    Grimwold is my racing partner and I don't even know about Grimwold's list. Do you have a link?

I suspect that the specific set of genes needed to enjoy Grimwold's list and the specific set of genes needed to enjoy Space Hulk may in fact not align and therefore we are not seeing a correlation of the two.

There are many niches and grannies in BGG they don't all have to cooexist.

Grimwold's list is what normally 125-150 people, how many use BGG?

Sag. I'm ashamed.

    Not ashamed enough to include a link apparently.

There's one on Page 4 too.

Me thinks they have just been too busy playing Space Hulk to catch the list!

I entered Space Hulk on the first page of the list.

I know exactly one person who has Space Hulk, and I just met him a couple of weeks ago. It's not even an AT/Euro thing. It's a cult-of-GW thing.

(Which is not to disparage the game or it's fans. The game is good. The fan community seems fairly self-contained.)

The list is an absolute good.

Some of the people listing Space Hulk had played previous editions of the game so it was not really new to them.

That's because nobody is actually playing Space Hulk, they're just hugging it tightly and drooling and leaving it in shrink for the profit down the road. devil

Space Hulk was the first game listed for my entry on Grim's list. But I will say this. I don't post to that list regularly - only when I've had a particularly interesting month. Playing Space Hulk, and Chaos In the Old World, made it a particularly interesting month.
