Mage Knight had made it up to 112 and should hit the top 100 soon.

I'd lay money this game will crack the top ten...and possibly the number one spot given enough time.

Good game, but its raw average is 8.32. For comparison Eclipse is 8.58 and it is apparently stuck at 12th place. So no, I don't think this will reach the top ten.

It's an amazing game, but it will never be No.1, mostly due to its complexity.

Yet look what happened with Space Hulk (third edition) - even with folks deliberately trying to tank it because they didn't like GW...

Space Hulk is complex?

Earth Reborn is probably a better example and is nicely at 35.

thats because they were protesting against GW's copyrights. Unless Wizkids does the same thing, this kind of debacle will not happen with MK.

It had nothing to do with the complexity of the game.

Eclipse has only been "stuck" at 12 for a few days. Eclipse will definitely crack the top 10, and I think it may get as high as #5 or #6.

As to Mage Knight BG, I definitely think it's headed for the top 20 at the very least. It might have a chance at the top 10, but I'm not sure. It does have a similar profile to Through the Ages (by the same designer) in terms of ratings and complexity.

And it doesn't have people deliberately trying to torpedo it as was the case with Space Hulk - which was my point...

If you see a couple of the really low ratings, you will see that there are a few people deliberatley trying to reduce the ranking. I guess it happens for all games.

What may drag it back is the quality of the printing and the issues some have had. It's why I am waiting so see how the reprint works out.

Why? I created one thread to keep them contained here. You don't have to read it.

That makes how many Vlaada Chvátil games in the top 100? 5?

Mage Knight is my first Vlaada game, so it's making me take another look at some of his other games.



Yep 5.

As you know, the actual Geek number is a complex formula involving several variables and some statistical analysis - I don't pretend to understand it. But, time appears to be a factor to compensate for initial buzz, hysteria and fan enthusiasm.

Have a look at the current #1 (Twilight Struggle) and note the Geek rating and the average rating. It also has over 9000 rating inputs which takes time and the spread in values has to stay fairy tight (some outliers will be discarded in time but only if the number stays relatively small).

Now have a look at the stats for MK, particularly where the bulk of the ratings are and the small number of outliers. I think this game is headed for the top ten if the ratings average stays where it is and raw number of ratings continue to climb. So far the average rating for this game is phenomenal and if it holds up it could go to #1. The only thing that could derail this is if the raw inputs drop off or if a whole bunch of ho-hum ratings start pouring in.

Same can be said for high ratings as well.
