What's Eric Playing?

When visiting a game page, users can now see both a community and a critic score on a new 100 point scale. For anything helpful, that user can head over to the original review source to watch, read or listen to the whole thing.

When the critic review feature was initially announced the overall response was excited but skeptical. People over and over said it was something desperately needed but that it was going to be hard to pull off. Reviews are seen as objective and too difficult to put a firm number on. Users will see now more than ever that scores have been applied and this content has been organized, this system provides a key guide that is easy to make sense of.

Board Game Atlas has an ambitious future roadmap planned and this marks a key step. Since January the team has been growing and outlining major features to be launched over the coming months. 

“In the past two months we have rolled out new systems for publishers, retailers and now critics. This is only the beginning and we are very excited to continue to improve the board game experience for the consumer and everyone else involved.” Said CEO Trent Ellingsen.
