I really dug this game, haven't played it in ages though. I THINK I might have a complete set (as well as most, if not all of Death Angel), might need to do some inventory at some point to see if these can be moved on to a better home. But they are compact games, makes it easy to keep around compared to the coffin box titles.

if you do decide to move either title to a new home, please let me know. I'd love to get the expansions to BBTM and cover the game again for the podcast.

We'd also love to cover Death Angel as well.

If you do manage to get some games in with the expansion teams, I'd always be interested to know if your impressions on competitiveness are similar to mine: therewillbe.games/articles-analysis/6079...nager-season-preview

Hey. Finally got around to listening to this and it struck me as kinda odd that all of you seemed to love the game and all of you rated it a 7. I haven't listened to all of the previous episodes (I don't understand what's happened to my formerly copious podcast listening time. Of course, I don't understand what's happened to my formerly copious reading time, either. Is this what getting old means?) so maybe I missed the one that laid out your respective rating systems that stop with a 7 or 8? Or only genuinely transformative games hit 8, 9, or 10 and just fun and properly developed ones (that properties that all of you seemed to agree on) don't make it past the level of "good' that 7 seems to embody?

Tee hee!

So there's a running joke that every game on the BGG rating table ends up being a 7. We've embraced that, applying the rating to every game regardless of what we think of it. Usually we'll make it a point to mention that we're using the BGG system to really drive home the point of its absurdity.

Your best bet is to listen to what we say over the breadth of the recording and judge from there. We aren't shy about offering opinions.

It's become a bit of a challenge to find new ways to put adjectives on the 7. But we're still finding ways. Monday a "cellar 7" will be handed out.

The unintended benefit is that any publisher wanting to use our rating is pretty much stuck. We're immunized from poaching.

Ah. OK. Now I know (half the battle, etc./GIJoe.) Works for me.

You could always subtract one from your actual rating, and append it as a decimal to the seven.

So every game gets a 7.6? Interesting . . .

But then it ceases to be a joke and becomes an actual rating.
