I've been registered with Board Game Geek since May 3rd, 2010. Since then I have accumulated 160 contest microbadges. But there is a problem:

Every microbadge is a reminder of a terrible losing streak. 160 contests! 0 wins! What are the odds?

(Well, the odds depend on how many entrants there were and how many entries they received and how many I received and.....)

So now I present the primary game(s) relevant to the contest and see if I missed out, dodged a bullet, or ended up owning the game anyway!


If the contest only gave away one game, that game is listed. If not, the thread to the contest is listed with each game separated in the item.

What: A space delivery game that plays in exactly 30 minutes!

Ratings: Ranked 4292 at 6.36 out of 76 ratings

JUDGMENT: I would probably play this, especially if I had people with AP around. It forces them to make a decision.

What: A game about a historical period that isn't made up!

Ratings: Ranked 3437 at 7.98 out of 38 ratings

JUDGMENT: Yes, I would definitely play this. The designer, Brian Mayer, is actually fairly close to me geographically and attends the areas board game nights, so it's exciting to see his game published.

What: Dueling mages! Wow, never seen THAT one before [/sarcasm]

Ratings: Ranked 30 at 8.42 out of 1958 ratings

JUDGMENT: Wow, quite the highly rated game. It does look intriguing and more thought out than most dueling games. The two player sucks because it's not usual for me to play such a thing, but I might get this.
