Scoring Overview

There are five rating categories to which you can individually assign a score of 1-5: Playability; Balance; Creativity; Map Design and Story/Instructions. All of the rating categories are subjective--some more than others--but try to be as consistent as you can with your own scoring.

5.0 - OUTSTANDING
Give this score only if there's something stunning and breathtaking in the scenario. This score should only be given to scenarios that are almost perfect, so be very careful when giving this score. For example, you read the storyline and wish it was a book, you see the map and can imagine wanting to stroll along that little river. Scenarios with 5.0 average scores are rare and creators of these scenarios are masters of Scenario Design. Consider the 5.0 score as something you would give rarely.

4.0 - EXCELLENT
If you think the category you're rating is definitely better than average, but hasn't reached the near perfection expected from a 5.0, give this score.

3.0 - AVERAGE
A good scenario; no glaring problems, but there are still plenty of things that can be improved in that category.

2.0 - BELOW AVERAGE
Is mediocre or has errors or many points that need improving, but the scenario can be played and completed.

1.0 - WELL BELOW AVERAGE
The lowest score you can give. For example, if there's nothing in the story box, or a bug means the game can't be played then for that category it's a 1.0.
