I entered my 184th contest here on BGG. Still expecting to win every time like a delusional Alzheimer patient.

I was surprised to see how many of the 184 games that I own.

Here is my list on contest loss/owned games.

Add you own.

I gave up counting my losses long ago. Burned up 2 computers trying to count that high.

Instead, I've tried to make it positive and take pride in my incredible streak of non-wins. shake

After going walkabout for most of the year, and thus not entering competitions, I have just earned my

mb (I've entered over 100 BGG Contests and all I got was this lousy microbadge)

microbadge.

As for the games I obtained:

mb Great Fire of London: I got the first edition from the publisher. A huge mistake. Nice game, terrible publisher.
mb Kingdom Builder: Bought from my favourite OLGS
mb Tzolk'in: Bought from the same OLGS
mb 12 Realms: Not got yet, of course. Subscribed to a German crowd Funding running in parallel to the Kickstarter, as the Kickstarter postage made it a non-starter.

5/130

mb Belfort: The Expansion Expansion Backed it on Kickstarter, hope to get it in a month or 2...
mb Pirates vs. Dinosaurs Again, backed on Kickstarter even though I didn't win.
mb Get Bit! Backed on Kickstarter but then sold it for a profit...
mb Kings of Air and Steam Got it from a backer for a bargain soon after they were sent out.
mb Terra Prime Found one on a BGG auction for a nice price.

Is it a coincidence that 4/5 have art by Josh Cappel?

I guess the real question is how many ended up on the wishlist or were purchased simply because they had a contest?



I own 4.5 games of the 160 contests I have entered

mb Bought because the contest piqued my interest, and it was on sale at CSI. This is the first game I purchased directly because of interest from a BGG contest.
mb Purchased after playing the game, not because of the contest.
mb Purchased while still on Kickstarter.
mb Owned before the contest.
mb This explains the 0.5 in my number above. I have the print n play edition from playtesting. I think my name is actually in the rulebook...



I have the following on my wishlist / want to play list

mb The game looks interesting, I just haven't gotten around to buying it. I'm obviously not too enthralled since I've waited this long.
mb I want to give Escape a try, but I don't want to buy it first since I hate dice games.
mb Contest brought to my attention and it looked interesting. I will probably buy this eventually.
mb I wouldn't have known about this game without the contest. I want to play.
mb Another game brought to my attention because of the contest. I really want to play this, and will probably buy it if no one else in my group does first.
mb I probably would of learned about this expansion eventually. I own and enjoy Belfort, so I will probably pick this one up.
mb This one is on my wishlist, but I can't even remember why now. I know I wouldn't have seen it were it not for the contest.
mb I may have leared about this eventually, but the contest is how I lerned about it. I've already played one game with it, and I will eventaully buy it.



mb I actually won this contest (2nd runner up). Got some promotional items, but no game.

What's the record for most contests without a prize?
