Today Belfort squeaked its way into the top 250 games of all time, according to boardgamegeek.com users. Users on this site (which can be anyone), rate the games and this allows the site to then compare and rank all of the games together. For those who need some context – the list is compiled of over 60,000 games!
To make it a bit more fair, such that a new game with only 8 votes of 10 out of 10 doesn’t immediately grab the top spot on this list, bgg.com adds an unknown number of votes of 5.5 to each game. This means that each game needs a lot of votes to bring its average up. Because of this, all games start way down the list, and as they get more and more votes (assuming the votes are above 5.5!), then the game climbs the list!
It’s exciting to be recognized as a top 250 game by gamers! Thanks everyone who voted for the game!
