Today, June 13, Earth Reborn officially rose up the ranks to the top 100. I thought it would be appropriate to commemorate this joyous occasion with a celebratory post. While there has been some evidence of the game not selling well, it's still important to recongnize wonderful design in board gaming. So, congratulations to the designer and the publisher for making such a highly-ranked game. Here's to you designing more top-notch products in the near future.

Mr Boelinger is probably one of the most underrated designers.
I think Dungeon Twister is even better the ER, it has such a clean and elegant design.

I ordered the game from the Tanga sale, but have been reading all of the back story online in prep for playing it. I've really enjoyed reading about his ideas behind designing the mechanics - it has fueled my desire to play!

This thread needs more 80's/90's action movie-esque quips to properly demonstrate the bad-assness that this game brings to the table. It plays out like some crazy Arnold/Stallone/Statham/Van Damme shoot out. Every. Single. Time! I'm wincing right now just thinking about it!

Fantastic game Christophe!

This really is a great game that fans of all the "dungeon crawl" modular board games should be taking a look at.

Congrats Chris! Although as far as I am concerned, Earth Reborn has been #1 or #2 since I got it. Depends on my mood, sometimes Dungeon Twister is #1, sometimes its Earth Reborn. Its other BGGers loss that they just don't recognize this already.

I got a feeling, this piece should and is about to be #1 (in both ranks.)

Certainly is a tough act to follow, isn't it?

I hope you mean this in a good way, because a certain reading of this statement could make it sound tragic.

It's a well deserved achievement. ER a game that reveals its greatness the more you play it. If you ever wanted to experience an 80's Schwarzenegger movie in a board game format, this is the game for you.

I've been in an off-cycle for the hobby for about a year--something that happens from time to time as I try to organize my little free time. This year I have bought only a couple games.

But I discovered Earth Reborn just a few weeks ago, and I have been absolutely losing my mind over it. It is the stuff of slavering devotion.

Nicely done!

I'm not sure if BGG rankings are calculated daily/weekly/in real-time, but Earth Reborn is now showing at 98 (it was at 100 when I first read this post).

Regardless, congratulations!

Contrary to seemingly most BGG, I'm trying to find motives to get rid of games.
