Chess is not a game. Chess is a well-defined form of computation. You may not be able to work out the answers, but in theory, there must be a solution, a right procedure in any position. Now real games... are not like that at all. Real life is not like that. Real life consists of bluffing, of little tactics of deception, of asking yourself what is the other man going to think I mean to do. And that is what games are about in my theory.

Competitive Nerding

Board Game Bio Weights

We have created a formula to give each board game a strategic weight. The formula has 4 components that are ranked from 1-10 on how important they are to win a match.

Decision Making

The quantity of decisions to be made and your ability needed to make correct decisions is a strategic skill that impacts your ability to win board games. This measures the complexity of the decision-making process.


Depending on the board game you play, your ability to influence others (bluffing, convincing, trading) is instrumental in winning a match. This measures the importance of influencing as a means of winning the game.


Most games have the same repeated dynamic throughout the game. In other games the volume of information you have to process is progressively increasing, making the game harder with each turn. This measures the level of complexity required for winning the game.


Some games have inherent luck factors built in ranging from card selection and die casting. It is a leveling factor in board games and we consider that the lower the factor of luck the more strategic capabilities you need to win.
