Every year nearly 200 maniac cyclists take part in a 3 week, 2000 mile cycle race around France. This contest echos that madness, but with games taking part.

Le Tour de Geek has 15 stages where the 50 best games will compete against each other. Each of the 15 stages represents a different aspect of what makes games great. As in Le Tour the competitors will be judged in a number of different ways and the best in each of these will be rewarded by wearing a coloured jersey in the next stage. After the 15 stages are complete we will know our champions.

The games have been chosen based on their performance in last year's Tour qualifying events (Top 25) and in two qualifying stages. Similar games (e.g. Dominion/Intrigue, Steam/Age of Steam) have been combined.

Stage 2: Replayability
Which game rewards multiple plays with new experiences, potential strategies and revelations of depth? Which game offers a large variety of game styles/play so that every game feels different and each play keeps you hungry for more? Which game do you want to play again immediately after finishing it?



I am aiming to run 2 stages per week so that this contest ends at the same time as the actual Tour de France. To make sure you don't miss a round subscribe here: 1000rpm's Polls Notification Thread - Just Subscribe!

The current Jersey holders are:


Yellow Jersey, Overall Leader (General Classification), gained by total Number of Votes
King of Tokyo

Green Jersey, Points Classification, Total Points awarded for most 'Wins'. Points vary according to the importance of the stage.
Roborally


Knizia Jersey, Best All-Rounder, awarded to the game with the best lowest score across stages
This jersey will not be awarded until the end of stage 2


Polka Dots, King of the Mountain, Total points in certain stages (highlighted on the map in Orange)
Dixit


White Jersey, Best New Game, Most votes for a new (since 2010) game
7 Wonders


Red Jersey, Best Old Game, Most votes for an old (before 2002) game
Bohnanza


White on Red, Most Combative (last stage), (guideline=smallest %gap between Wins & Total Votes)
Galaxy Trucker


After a single stage it is no shock to see the jerseys dominated by the contestants that were strong in that stage, "Fun". Can any of these hold on to these jerseys to the end, or even for another stage?
