Woww it seems that we have a winner here:
The Geek rating is still moderate mainly due to the low number of vote (rank 181 of boardgame as of today with 179 rating) but it ranks already number 3 in Wargame list.
Moreover this is the only game in all BGG (46000+ game!) to have an average rating over 9 (9.52) with more than 100 rating.

To be follow-up.goo

Ok we all have to admit that when you put that amount of money in a game you're not likely to put a bad rate...

There's a pretty strong selection bias. For the most part, only those who already love the game are going to pay $400 for a collector's edition.

Not true! i'd never played the game before but saw the buzz starting on the net. Then i saw the preview pics and i knew i'd give in.

I have played it 5 times so far and still have to master it.

Highly recommended.

Yes, I've been watching it steadily rise through the ranks wondering where it will finish. I hope that plenty of second wave customers will push it further up. I just want to see it doing well so that it gets acclaim for Nexus and maybe other projects like it will also be inspired.

same for me: never play this game and I get excited by the presentation, the theme & buzz so I read most review & rules before taking my (hard) decision to buy the CE and not the regular. But it's somewhat risky if at the end I don't like it (I don't think so...).
My next challenge will be to find time & friend to play a 4 hours game

Frankly it's a masterpiece and worth every penny I paid for it.

If it somehow ever made the top 20 I bet its entry would get merged with the original game.

I am yet another "never-played-the-game-before-I-bought-the-collectors's-edition" person. I love this game!

This would be true if only the people that have bought the game, or played the game, were allowed to rate it.

This game currently has 3 people that are rating it a 1.
I have proven at least one of them has never set eyes on the game.

Lots of the worse ratings are from people that do not want to buy it because it is too expensive.


Eh.
I think it is magnificent that quality stuff like this happens, at least sometimes.
