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.

General Classification Vote Count TOTAL to Date

Codenames stretched its lead to now over 100 points even though Pandemic still did well despite its Legacy combo status, moving into 2nd whilst Galaxy Trucker fell to 3rd.
Love Letter pushed a lot of places with its 100+ votes.
In the lower places, Hanadi and For Sales had a good stage.
This stage should see The Resistance, BSG, Galaxy Trucker and Twilight Struggle do well, but there could be some surprises.

Points Classification Win Points TOTAL to Date

Codenames now owns top spot in both major categories (and "New Game" as well), displacing Pandemic to 2nd.
With none of the top 8 getting points, Dominion and CoB took advantage.
First points on the board from Hanabi.
This round could be a good one for games in the Top 5 to make up some ground on Codenames.

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

All the others (17 games) have zero points.

Knizia Jersey Top Ten (best all-rounder)

Top Ten games by minimum vote levels:

41 Power Grid
40 Agricola
37 Pandemic/Legacy (combo)
24 Battlestar Galactica
22 Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar
22 Robinson Crusoe
21 Galaxy Trucker 
21 Roborally
21 Cosmic Encounter 
20 The Resistance/Avalon

Galaxy Trucker saw its score badly hit, BSG and Roborally too. T&E disappears from the Top 10.
