To all my geekfriends, I know I haven't been around much lately, but BGG is still my homepage and everyone is still in my heart everyday. Just so damn busy!

WOW! Okay, sorry about the long wait for those of you who put so much thought into this contest! I've been sick - again - 2nd time in only a couple of months. Anyway, for anyone who is not familiar with it, here's the original link:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/101571/page/1

After the first few pages, I knew it was going to be a hard decision to make - harder than I originally thought. I decided to award the original 10 GG + some to more than just one person, so I chose my favorite 3.

I based my decision on just 2 factors: 1) It had to make sense to the general public, the average Joe tailgater, not just to boardgamegeeks. 2) It had to be short enough to fit on a license plate frame!
If there were multiple submissions, I accepted the earliest one.

1st place - 8 GG - Marc Hartstein (MarcMagus)
Boardgamegeeks do it....on the table.
I decided on this because it was simple, provided great visual and most people would understand it.

2nd place - 5 GG - Kima Pesan (kimapesan)
Boardgamegeeks do it...with the rope in the billiards room.
Boardgamegeeks do it...by saying E&T me!

I liked them both, but they didn't fit the requirements.

3rd place - 2 GG - Eric Fritz (SecretSauce)
Boardgamegeeks do it...with a Bang!
I thought this was too cute - too bad no one else would get it.


There were so many excellent, excellent submissions!! I would make some choices and then change my mind, several times over. I wish I had enough GG to pass around! If anything, it makes for fun reading - this was great stuff! I'll probably turn a bunch more of these into hangy wall plaques for my office or magnets for my fridge.

Thanks everyone!

Drat... what you need to do is get a bigger license plate frame!

Thanks much, this was a little too much fun.

Great choice, wiz. When I saw "on the table" I didn't bother trying to think of one, I knew that would be unbeatable!

Reading through the thread again probably a good choice, although I also liked "...for geekgold"

I thought I was a board game geek, I am sometimes Joe tailgater, and I am always a member of the general public.

I don't, however, know what this means. Whats "E&T"? blush
