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).

Nomination Text:
[altname]Dominion: Cornucopia Expansion[/altname]

Dominion: Cornucopia has been stated to be the next expansion, likely due sometime in 2011 based on release patterns so far. No official entry on BGG yet; nothing is known about the expansion apart from the name. Like all things Dominion, I'm sure plenty of people will be anticipating this one.

Nomination Text:
Really looking forward to this expansion: add a fifth player + a new add-on board.

Also the bonus card Alien Frontiers: The Mind Control Helmet is something to look forward to. This extra is included with the second printing of the base game and can also be ordered seperately from their website.

Nomination Link: Click Here

Nomination Text:
Subcategory on the original game is Nautical. For this posting it could go as Science Fiction or Fantasy.

Survive will be reprinted as "Survive: Escape from Atlantis!" by publisher Stronghold Games in Q4, 2010. The reprint will contain the game Survive, as well as all the extra pieces needed in order to play the game as "Escape from Atlantis".

I have it on pre-order and it may arrive by the end of Dec 2010. I'm guessing it will be in stores in Jan 2011.

Update: As of 22 Dec 10, Stronghold games has shipped all the pre-orders and reports that Survive! will reach Distributors by mid-January, and will be at your friendly local or online game store by late-January.

Also, looking forward to [altname]Blood Bowl: Team Manager[/altname] due out Q1 from Fantasy Flight Games. It's "a standalone game of deck-building action that takes 2-4 players through the cutthroat excitement of an entire Blood Bowl season, all in about an hour." (from FFG's website)

Bowen has it pretty much ready, he just needs to get it produced. I waited all through 2010, but I know we will finally get in in 2011.
By far, my most anticipated game in 2011.

Nomination Text:
2 player real time boxing game - with plenty of hooks, jabs and punches.

The game is currently pending due to issues with the cards - the thickness has to be right to sustain the real time nature of the game.

sedjtroll wrote:
There's been a delay because the manufacturers are having a problem replicating the required thickness of lamination for the cards. The construction of the cards is critical for his game, so it's very important to us that they get it right!

An as yet unnamed expansion for the base game.

The designer has gone on record several times stating that the expansion will be available in 2011 or never.

[altname]Unnamed Innovation Expansion - Summer 2011[/altname]

Expansion deck for Summer 2011. Sounds like it'll focus on tools/artifacts/things associated with Civ rather than ideas. Obviously I'm fond of Carl Chudyk games.
