Copied and pasted from the other nomination instructions:

Everyone nominate your favorite 10 (or more) games, in order. Make your list independent of everyone else.

Rather than counting up nominations (which is problematic with so few) or everyone getting to add 3 games (which is problematic insofar as everyone won't be adding their top 3, but rather their top 3 which hasn't been picked by someone else already), I will add games to the field such that each participant will be "responsible" for some amount of game added (at least 3, probably 4 - depends on how many participate). For example, if Thesp and I both list Race as our favorite game, it will be added to the field but only count as a half pick for each of us (but if we later get to someone's fifth pick which is also Race, it will now count a third for each of us, and so on).

(Probably overly complicated for me, but for you, easy nomination system!)

I'll tentatively say "all expansions are considered to be included with the base game". The definition of "favorite" is up to you, though - feel free to take into account how often you want to play it, how often you get to play it, how much fun you have, how good the social experience is, how thematic it is, how elegant the design is, how much you think about the game when not playing it... whatever criteria you want to use.

After the nomination stage, I'll put together a bracket from the chosen games (possibly with some byes, possibly with some additional games included by runoff... just depends on how the numbers come out).

1) Combat Commander: Europe
2) Micro Mutants: Evolution
3) Princes of the Renaissance
4) Napoleon's Triumph
5) The Princes of Florence
6) Crokinole
7) Age of Steam
8) 1830: Railways & Robber Barons
9) The Resistance
10) Planet Steam

These are in no particular order. Its hard to leave off games like: Here I Stand, Paths of Glory, Tigris and Euphrates, Twilight Struggle, Battling Gladiators. I tried to represent a few games that might otherwise not get represented....but also can't deny my favorites even if they already show up on the list.
