The New and Uncoming Sci-fi Games Geeklist has turned 1,000 (items)! To celebrate (and just for fun) I'm running this GL contest.

Read all of the header before entering!

To enter/rules:

d10-1 There are scans of sprues from 49 games in this geeklist. To enter send me a geekmail with a list numbered 1 to 50 identifying the games the sprues are from. Entry 50 is your guess of what the average score per entry will be. Take into account the bonus entries below.
d10-2 Each game sprue you correctly identify will earn you one space credit. Most space credits wins.
d10-3 Do NOT comment with answers on this list.
d10-4 If there is a tie, the tie will be broken by whoever has the closest guess to what the average score per entry will be (including bonus' below). If there is still a tie the geek roller will determine the winner.
d10-5 One entry per person.
d10-6 Contest will be open from now until 2300 Australian Eastern Daylight Time March 14, 2015.
d10-7 Have fun!
d10-8 Hint: I scanned all these sprues myself.
d10-9 Subscribe to this GL to see results when they are posted.
d10-1d10-0 This isn't meant to be easy! Some didn't fit on my scanner so you only have partial views of them.
d10-1d10-1 A game from the same family is not a correct guess. So, for example, guessing Carcassonne when the game is Carcassonne: The Count of Carcassonne will be marked as incorrect.
d10-1d10-2 You do not need to thumb this GL to enter but it would be appreciated.

Bonus space credits

d10-1 Since this contest is celebrating The New and Uncoming Sci-fi Games Geeklist, anyone who owns the microbadge mb from that list will receive 5 additional space credits. You do not need to be displaying the MB in order to earn the bonus space credits.
d10-2 There are a number of Sci-fi games in this list. Each correctly identified game will earn an additional space credit (i.e. Sci-fi game are worth 2 space credits in total).
d10-3 There is one game in this list that I have forgotten the identity of. If you are able to name it you will receive 3 bonus space credits. (i.e. this entry is worth four space credits in total, assuming I can verify you are correct).

Prizes

Prizes will be awarded based on most space credits - not just on the number of correct entries.

d10-1 First prize: a sealed copy of Star Realms sent anywhere in the world, plus 50% of the geekgold pool (which starts at 100gg plus any tips added to it).
d10-2 Second prize: 30% of the geekgold pool.
d10-3 Third prize: 20% of the geekgold pool.

:::Results:::

The maximum possible number of space credits with bonus taken into account was:
49 correct games
11 sci-fi games
5 mb
3 Unknown game - item #1 (Rum & Pirates)
68 Total

The tie-breaker: The average space credits was 36.8

1st Place: Winner of a new copy of Star Realms + 50% of the GG prize pool (109 x 0.5 = 54.50)
