Percentage, scores out of 10, 1 to 5 stars, A to F grades, etc, we have lots of ways of rating something. Norway (home of Lars, who runs and mostly pays for Tamiyabase – and therefore the home of TB itself) though, since the early 1950s has had terningkast – a dice throw to indicate a score from 1 to 6.
This is my take on what a particular score means, compare and contrast the modern 1 to 5 stars for goods & services, where anything less is considered disastrous by those overseeing the receiver…
Scores of a zero-sided dice, and even seven pips have been used in extremis, but I doubt you’ll see such a thing here.
