Game rating strangness

A new game just published has 71 plays but an average rating of 4.5stars.

IIRC a game needs 50 ratings to be given an average, and the only way you’ll get 50 ratings in the first 70 plays is by manipulation?

Not necessarily.

50 ratings out of 70 plays doesn’t seem unheard of or impossible. And even if it was manipulation, it would quickly be fixed by all the other people rating it.
