updated my personal Want to Play list so its more meaningful now. Before it was almost more of a "willing to play under right circumstances" list. Now I've trimmed it down to just stuff I actively want to play by applying the Cosmic Encounter benchmark test:

"Would I consider, even for a moment, in any mood, playing this over a game of Cosmic Encounter starting up in the same room?"

If the answer is "no", then I took it off my list. Cut it down to 50% that way =D. Should be more accurate now, as it only shows stuff I'd pretty much 100% for sure say "yes" to trying or playing at game night (not to say I couldn't be coerced into other stuff, but these are the sure bets I'm actively seeking)

Just pared mine down. Hard though; long vs. short list. Wish I could instead mark the priority e.g. wishlist.

I found a way to pare down my want-to-play list for next time. I unchecked everything I owned. Just know that I want to play any game that I own!

Twilight Struggle #1, I guess BBG has aligned with BGG now =P

I looked into it because I was nosey.

Looks like it was because you lowered the rating by 1 point. biggrin

Yes, I lowered about half of my rated games by 1 point to shift my ratings slightly downward, since I wasn't using the range of ratings BGG provides and to do better honor to my very top, top games. Games I was enamored with after just a few plays but I haven't played that much and am therefore less confident about trended downwards, they may get their point back, but will have to earn it tongue

EDIT: Actually, I lowered Twilight Struggle one point too (since I've only played it once, even though I'm pretty sure it actually would end up at 10), and its rating went up. So something else must have changed too!

When I grabbed the data, your DS was higher than TS. I see it's the same now (and DS is #1 again). Must have caught you in between!

Might have to start culling some of these users since I haven't seen them in forever (will 'turn off' their collection, and turn on again in future if needed). Keeping only these for next time: Bharath, DavidF, Charles, ChrisF, Diana, Julie, Kweku, Mak, MarkL, Max, PaulC, Ralph, Shanti, Stephen.
