Game Search Quirk
« on: September 06, 2011, 10:16:40 am »

What order do the games in the game search results appear in? I always assumed it was in order of recency, but when I did a search for a post this morning, this game from July was in first, while this game from yesterday came up second.

There is some heuristic about trying to match the query well.

It tries biases results by looking for games where players used differing strategies on the searched terms.  It also likes when some player buys all of the listed kingdom cards.

You can put a magical &debug=1 in the query to see the ranking scores.
