The Best of the Rest


After a 3 week nomination period the nominations list is now closed and we have the top 50 nominees that will vie to make the cut for the top 20 in this most in-formal and un-official contest.

We also have a number of nominees competing within the subcategories. The top 20 nominees in each subcategory made it into the poll. When there was a tie for the 20th spot, all tied nominees were added (which is why some polls have a couple of extra games).

A final category, "The Best of the Rest", was created to allow each nomination a shot at a category.

Voting runs until Friday, January 21st

Status Update Winners
To make the status updates more interesting, I modified the script that generates the results to randomly select one person that has thumbed this geeklist and award them 10 .

Every time I publish a status update the script will pick a new winner (or a repeat winner if they're lucky).

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

Nomination Text:
Well, it's technically 63 pre-orders away from P500, but we all know that "500" might well mean "800." It's a bit nebulous.

So, if it makes the cut it could be on the docket in 2011.

Or 2017.

[altname]Troyes - Z-Man Edition[/altname]

Z-Man says this is set to arrive in the first quarter of 2011. I'm liking the innovative use of dice in several recent games (i.e. Macao). The more I read about this one, the more excited I become.

Back for a second time and placing 12th overall and 1st in the train subcategory for 2010...

Will 2011 finally see Mayfair/Lookout release their re-make of 1830???

Update:
Boardgames in Blighty is reporting that Mayfair has sent this to the presses!!!!

Link: http://rivcoach.wordpress.com/2010/12/23/news-from-mayfair-g...

1830 is expected to hit the stores March 17, 2011!!!!

Wow, eight exclamations in two sentences is probably a record for me, but this game deserves it.

This is one of my all-time favorite train games and IMHO is the grand-daddy of the 18xx series. It wasn't the first, but it was Avalon Hill's edition that introduced Tresham's 18xx series to many gamers.

Even more exciting is the fact that not only does it include the original Avalon Hill rules, but it also includes rules for an alternative game developed by Francis Tresham himself!!!! (there we go again with the exclamations)

To be reprinted by Strong Hold games in 2011.

Been playing its descendant Scepter of Zavandor like crazy...what a great system! And now instead of paying ridiculous prices on eBay ($200+), I'll finally get to play the original at a reasonable price. Strong Hold games also plans to tweak the original rule set with some great player's variants and might also offer something special to pre-order customers.

Can't WAIT to get my hands on this one!
