I suggest that we use the Boardgamegeek.com rating system, since it's
familiar to many people.  Ratings go from 1 to 10, but you can use
decimals if you want, e.g. 5.5 for a completely average rating.
Here's their suggested labels (originally due to Aaron Fuegi, I

    * 10 - Outstanding. Always want to play and expect this will never change.
    * 9 - Excellent game. Always want to play it.
    * 8 - Very good game. I like to play. Probably I'll suggest it and
will never turn down a game.
    * 7 - Good game, usually willing to play.
    * 6 - Ok game, some fun or challenge at least, will play
sporadically if in the right mood.
    * 5 - Average game, slightly boring, take it or leave it.
    * 4 - Not so good, it doesn't get me but could be talked into it
on occasion.
    * 3 - Likely won't play this again although could be convinced. Bad.
    * 2 - Extremely annoying game, won't play this ever again.
    * 1 - Defies description of a game. You won't catch me dead
playing this. Clearly broken.
