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 for Stage 8: Memorability

Two games dominated the stage with by the most votes and Win votes: Pandemic/Legacy and Battlestar Galactica. Dead of Winter and interesting 3rd on votes, but only 9th on Win votes.
This is the Legacy element in full force as Pandemic was nowhere last year, but displaces BSG's top spot and these games have cut into the share of votes that The Resistance, Twilight Struggle and Galaxy Trucker got last time.

124 Pandemic/Legacy (combo)
88 Battlestar Galactica
64 Dead of Winter
63 Twilight Struggle
60 The Resistance/Avalon
57 Robinson Crusoe
57 Galaxy Trucker 
54 Cosmic Encounter 
48 Codenames
44 Roborally
43 Power Grid
40 Dixit
36 Through the Ages (combo)

General Classification Vote Count TOTAL to Date

An amazing stage from Pandemic/Legacy (with its second stage win) sees it cut Codenames' lead massively. Galaxy Trucker also makes up some ground and BSG is back in the running.
CoB, 7 Wonder, Love Letter and Dominion fade.
Things went badly for nearly everyone at the back.
This stage could be a little break though as none of the front-runners usually do very well here. A chance for others to make up some ground.

655 Codenames
604 Pandemic/Legacy (combo)
517 Galaxy Trucker 
481 Agricola
481 Power Grid
444 Twilight Struggle
434 The Resistance/Avalon
432 Battlestar Galactica
401 King of Tokyo/New York
389 7 Wonders/Duel (combo)
385 Castles of Burgundy
374 Dominion (series)
363 Roborally
358 Ticket to Ride (series)
358 Terra Mystica
354 Love Letter
351 Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar
349 Cosmic Encounter 
327 Race for the Galaxy
324 Robinson Crusoe
317 Dead of Winter
293 Dixit
272 Carcassonne (series)
268 Can't Stop
266 Through the Ages (combo)

Knizia Jersey Top Ten (best all-rounder)

Top Ten games by minimum vote levels:

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

Not much change in the order here, but Power Grid strengthens its hold as Agricola drops a little.
