1: "Defies Description of a game. You won't catch me dead playing this. Clearly broken"

Having this opinion about SH is quite legal. Imo there is no point in fixing this and 7.124 is quite a fair rating for this game ..

Aaaaaaaand I agree with Mike!

Only a dilettante poseur would wear a rubber chicken on their head while performing the regal art of fartkazooing!

I'd have to say we're dealing with a classic case of projection, here.

More concerning is the fact that pseudo-anonymous ratings of game are making you angry. Does the game's rating on BGG have any measureable impact on your own enjoyment of the game? Relax and have fun... this is a forum about gaming for goodness sake.

Grow up.

Sticking a kazoo up your butt and a rubber chicken on your head while running around your house, fartkazooing "Another one bites the dust" is quite legal, but that doesn't mean anyone should do it.


Fixed that for you

One of these was inevitible really.

I rated the game a 1 *before* the GW C&D debacle and that rating still stands.

As I've stated in the @#$%&ing endless threads whinning about the precious ratings system. 90% of the BGGers havent a damn clue what it represents and seems 25% just want to make it into their personal little clique system just like some freak out over the Hotness list.

The ratings system is a gauge of a players enjoyment of a game. NOT the games value, bits, gloss or anything else. If someone dislikes a game and never intends to play it, then a 1 is valid. For them the game is broken.

As example: Just look at the myriad threads on Race for the Galaxy.

If a companies actions or even a groups actions have killed your enjoyment of a game then that certainly qualifies as both "broken" and "never going to play".

Now sit back and watch the 50+ pages of sniping to come.

I'm not weighing in on this this issue until my next pair of days off, but I LOVE the 'fartkazoo' comment.

What a useful thread.

As a general reminder, users are always expected to express themselves in a courteous and respectful way. Geekdo policy is to issue a warning on a first offense and to follow future offenses with temporary posting suspensions of increasing length. Rather than responding to content that you find offensive, please consider flagging any offending posts as violations by using the icon. This serves two functions - first, if enough users flag a post then it will be collapsed from general view. Second, flagging posts helps bring them to the attention of the forum moderators.

Finally, in extreme circumstances you can hide all content posted by a user from your view by using the Hide User's Posts option in the menu found under the person's username. Please remember that making any public mention of who is on your Hide List is considered a zero tolerance offense.

Thanks!

Locked.
