Memoir 44 is ranked at 44 on BGG as of 2-9-10.

Is this purely coincidence or has it been there for quite a while?

Are there unseen forces keeping it ranked at 44 intentionally?

Considering it has an average of 7.41229 when the games around it are at 7.48391 (Galaxy Trucker) and 7.47764 (Catan) I'd say that something a little mysterious is going on.

Coincidence? I think NOT! Conspiracy, I say!

Very interesting... In a couple of years I will be 44.

I stopped paying attention to the rankings a while ago... Since then I've bought a lot less games and am curbing my addiction to spend and collect.

One of the women I hang out with was born in March of 1944. She may know something.

I'll also be 44 in 4 years. Is there a fourth BGGer for this coincidence?

Spookily - it may even reach 44 C today. Conspiracy in these stickyhot midsummers.

Wow another one! My gamer guy won $180 in a Pick Three Lotto boxing 44 the any other number. And was 44 days ago.

Well ok, that last part was a lie.

This is CRAZY. I've been playing M'44 every weekend for over a year, without playing any other wargame. May 6th, 2010 I'll be 44 year old...zombie

[Robespierre and Freud were also born that May 6th (of course years before)]

In my country there is a famous poem, written in XIX century, where a strange, mystic and unexplained text appears, like: "...and his name is fourty four..."

Absolutely, Phil.
The poem was written by Adam Mickiewicz. Title: "Dziady" (that means Grandfathers, but in a bit archaic meaning). It's a name of a pagan habit, a day of the dead - Nov.1 st., like Halloween.

The number of the beast!

So I guess 44 must be the number of the beauty!

And here I thought 42 was the answer...

I'll be 44 in 17 years, and 10 years ago I was 17 when some of the other respondents were 44.

And as we all know...

17
1 7
1 + 7
8
4 + 4
44

Consipiracy, there is no other explanation.
