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 20) and in two qualifying stages.
Similar games (e.g. Dominion/Intrigue, Steam/Age of Steam) have been combined.

Previous Stages:

Stage 7: Value for Money
Is it worth the price? How does the cost of the game compare with the regularity it will be played? How much is the cost versus the total game time it will be played?



This year's Le Tour is going to be run at a much more leisurely pace than previous years. 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
Codenames

Green Jersey, Points Classification, Total Points awarded for most 'Wins'. Points vary according to the importance of the stage.
Pandemic/Legacy (combo)


Knizia Jersey, Best All-Rounder, awarded to the game with the best lowest score across stages
Galaxy Trucker


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


White Jersey, Best New Game, Most votes for a new (since 2012) game
Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar


Red Jersey, Best Old Game, Most votes for an old (2000 or older) game
Roborally


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


Codenames retakes the Yellow jersey making a nonsense of my "lost its hotness" question. Galaxy Trucker slips on the Knizia jersey instead.
Pandemic/Legacy retains the points jersey despite getting no points last stage.
Power Grid switches its Knizia jersey for the King of the Mountain jersey.
Tzolk'in and Roborally retain their Old and New jerseys.
Five Tribes aggression in Good Use of Time takes the Combative.

General Classification Vote Count TOTAL to Date

Galaxy Trucker did okay in the last stage, but the win from Codenames sees it re-take the Yellow jersey and it might consolidate that lead in this stage.
7 Wonders 99 votes saw it climb the rankings. King of Toyko/New York climbs back a few spots too.
Twilight Struggle and BSG saw their challenge falter.
At the back San Juan and Lost Cities did okay, while Acquire's dreadful stage saw it slip back towards 51st.

Points Classification Win Points TOTAL to Date

Our leaders, Pandemic and Twilight Struggle got no points last stage so saw Codenames catch up to joint second and a crucial couple of points for Galaxy Trucker keeps it up there.
10 points for 7 Wonders sees it jump up the board, likewise Race, Dixit and Love Letter improve substantially.
Love Letter and The Resistance could do well this stage and Codenames might take top spot.
For Sale got its first points on the board, but just 2 was probably a bit disappointing for Good Use of Time.

40 Pandemic/Legacy (combo)
36 Twilight Struggle
36 Codenames
35 Galaxy Trucker 
30 Battlestar Galactica
27 Agricola
26 Cosmic Encounter 
22 The Resistance/Avalon
21 Dominion (series)
20 Terra Mystica
17 Power Grid
17 Castles of Burgundy
17 7 Wonders/Duel (combo)
15 Race for the Galaxy
14 Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar
12 Dixit
12 Love Letter
10 Robinson Crusoe
8 Roborally
7 King of Tokyo/New York
7 Carcassonne (series)
6 Dead of Winter
6 Tigris & Euphrates
5 Can't Stop
4 Ticket to Ride (series)
3 Chess
3 Concordia
3 Five Tribes
3 Go
3 Puerto Rico
2 For Sale
1 Through the Ages (combo)
1 Dominant Species

All the others (18 games) have zero points.
