The contest is now officially over!


I would like to thank everyone for taking their time and commenting/voting in my geeklist. I did not expect such a huge turnout of people participating!

The residents of BGG have spoken and the two most favored champions are:

1st Pandemic: On the Brink - 76 votes

2nd Mage Knight Board Game: The Lost Legion Expansion - 69 votes

Vote count for the rest of expansions:

3rd Ticket to Ride Maps: India & Switzerland - 50 votes
4th Race for the Galaxy: The Gathering Storm - 49 votes
5th Agricola: Farmers of the Moor - 44 votes
6th Legendary: Villains – A Marvel Deck Building Game - 23 votes

10th Summoner Wars: Alliances Master Set - 15 votes

Stick around this GeekList (*cough* subscribe) if you want to see some photos of the acquired expansions! You've all been a great help and physical proof of purchase is mandatory! (The purchaser might be in the photo)

Now. I've taken the initial 28 participants and combined them with the rest of the crowd from the "For The Win" entry. Adding all up the total count is 205! Everyone got assigned a number to them, ranging from 1 to 205. Navigating to www.random.org website, the digits have been pushed in and the winner is...

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Congratulations no. 114 ! I have just sent you a wire transfer of 40 GeekGold!

Thanks again to everyone for helping me out! Special thanks to those who wrote constructive opinion/feedback about the selected expansions!

Until next time!

--------------------------Archive-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Archive-------------------

How's it going?
Past few months I've been pondering what expansion(s) should I get for myself. There are a lot of them out there for the games I own and the idea of just picking few of them myself - seems daunting. Here's where you come in - help me decide with votes (by liking) the expansions I am about to list.

Some ground rules:

* Every entry I list here will add some personal details about my own opinion about the base game and decision for the expansion.

* If you think I am missing out on a really great expansion that I haven't added to the list - tell me!

* You can like as many entries as you want. Also, you don't have to own the expansion to tell me whether to get it - just think of me as someone you know who might bring this to the next game session!

* Monday @ Midnight(UTC+3h) the voting will end and one random participant will receive 40 GeekGold. If you want to win, you must like this geeklist (after the mini-contest ends, you can unlike again, this just helps with counting the participants). To participate in winnning 40 GG, press the like button on the first geeklist item "For The Win" I have listed.

After the mentioned period of time ends, I will purchase the 2 most voted entries listed!

Let's begin!

EDIT: Thanks to a_traveler for letting me know about the community guidelines. I've updated the participation requirement. I've wrote down the usernames in the For The Win entry, so the 28 people who initially liked the geeklist, do not have to like that item again!)

We've been playing Agricola for quite a while and I've never seen a title that would cause a bigger headache than this one! But the headache is superfluous of course - I am talking about the exhausting analysis paralysis that I suffer each time when I have to internally battle it out to decide whether to wait for those 9 wood cubes or just take 'em now! If you are a sadist and want me to cause even more mental pain by making me care if the house is heated and the horses are fed - vote!

We own the sudden death expansion and it's great! But wouldn't it be better if we also had this one as well!?

I play Netrunner competitively, but my girlfriend doesn't! She is my biggest supporter of my hobby and also a really hardcore gamer! She basically can play anything with me - from War of the Ring to FluxX. While she didn't like Netrunner, she LOVES Doomtown! So do I! We've only got the Core Set, but I think this expansion - adding new type of casters - will befit us the most!

I've always felt bad about myself when it came to being good at chess. Well, this is like a quick fix of random chess - which I am actually good at! It's been awesome playing it and I feel like Arthur and his company of men would bring even more fun to the round table!

You could hardly call this beast an expansion, but it is - if you own the original game with Marvel heroes. What can I say - we love, love, LOVE Marvel universe - so more stuff means more goodness (and more problems with storage/sleeves, duh..)

This is probably one of our favorite heavier games. Me and my girlfriend always pick co-op scenarios and enjoy plundering the monasteries together! Well, it's usually me who razes the ground and she's the one who assaults keeps and mage towers! We've played enough times to consider this as a potential expansion!

Yeah, I am a Marvel fan - so is my girlfriend! This is an awesome collectible game that we've been enjoying.

I am not sure how many packs I would purchase though - maybe 1 pack for 1 vote?

After getting exposed to the demo on iOS, I've always thought of it with great admiration. A couple of months ago, bought the old core set (2.5 I think) and it became our most played game of the week. In fact, we played it so much, that after that we felt completely burned out and I am afraid without an expansion - we won't be looking at it for a long time.

Theoretically, we can easily beat this game. But when it comes to applying our theory in reality - things start looking much more grim.

I have to admit - this game rarely hits our table. I actually play this more on my PC (Keldon client) than physically, but I've read great things about the included Robot AI in this expansion! In either case, I am sure this would cause at least one person (me) to come back to it!

We own pretty much everything except this expansion. Some might call me crazy - it's an expansion that adds ACTUAL variety to the geography of the game. Yes, I am getting bored looking at the same map over and over, so maybe it's time to get this one?

Played it on iPad first before purchasing physically - never regretted the choice. I really like the idea of just taking a deck and playing it without giving much thought about its construction. Obviously, I've got some factions besides the Master set I own, but this big box would definitely spice things up! Like we're talking ghost pepper spicyness.

We've honestly stopped playing this game (Europe version) just because we got bored of the repetitive map. We haven't got anything different and I am thinking of reviving this game again!(really don't know which map expansion is best, I am open to suggestions). This has been a great title to introduce several non-board gamers (parents, socialite friends etc.).
