Top 10 Lists

EAST TENNESSEE GAMERS (01/2015)

Editor’s Note:  This is a compilation of the Top 20 games based on the ratings submitted by our members.  We secure ratings after each game played, and maintain these on a spreadsheet.  To be eligible, a game must have registered at least 5 ratings.

We also use a Bayesian average method wherein twenty “6” ratings have been added to each game.  This helps prevent skewed ratings resulting from too few ratings as compared to other games.
