I think your algorithm should check the rating that is given in BGG, if any.
I finally received the package, with a slow delivery (not your fault of course, but the local carrier). When I opened it though, I got Power Grid, which is a highly rated game, but I give it a 6/10. On BGG that states "OK Game". And an OK game isn't what I'd go and purchase.
Also, I got Hanabi, which I already own. And it's marked as "owned" on the geek site, and in "My collection" here on board game crate site.
Hi there,

Thanks very much for your review. It's all helping us improve! :)

When we pick games for our crate we do check each and every BGG rating. We will never include a game in our crate that isn't rated above 6.0 and if it's rated between 6.0 and 6.5 then we have to have played it and really enjoyed it, otherwise it doesn't go anywhere near our crate!

As you say, Power Grid is a highly-rated game, currently 7.91/10 on BGG.

I'm really sorry that you received Hanabi in your crate, which you say is a game you already have.

Please do get in touch with us at hello@boardgamecrate.co.uk and we'll work out why Hanabi was assigned to you.

Best wishes,

Phil
