Whatever the range, some suggestion as to how to score a game might lead
to greater consistency in the use of it. Perhaps a mid-range score could
be labelled as "I will probably play this again, not just because it's
part of the competition", something lower than that "not much fun as it
stands, but could be better if fixed up", something even lower "I hated
this game", and so on.
