Hi everyone, new to the forums but I've been a regular user of boardgamegeek.com for a little while now.

I am interested in compiling everyone's game data to see if we can generate an unbiased view on how all the faction pairs tend to match up. If you are interested in contributing simply post the following in single game result format:

two winning factions-points
two losing factions-points
two losing faction-points (if three people played)
two losing faction-points (if four people played)


Results so far as of January 2nd, 2014:

14.01.02 Keep the results coming! Any questions on specific matchups I can post those. It's a huge matrix so I haven't figured out yet how I'm going to show the whole table of matchups, but I have it in excel.

13.12.25 Clearly not enough data yet to comment on all faction combinations. Keep posting results! The data is clear on Dino-Zombies, but I think Ninja/Steampunks in the most superior team at this point. Feel free to comment.

I'll update the first post soon to show how each faction is performing. A large majority of the results are from my circle of players and I don't have the Obligatory expansion. If people can continue to post their match results that would be most appreciated.

I've kept track of every game played, and I know that it varies depending on the shuffle and the strategy of the player.
I'd offer my data if you really want it, but it seems like it would be a huge annoying post. Would you rather I broke it up somehow for you? Suggestions?
I don't have a percentage, but I've also made a list of every combination played and how many plays/wins for each.
Just send me the raw data so I can enter it into my spread sheet, i sent you a message

I doubt you are still keeping this to date, but here are my most recent games. Base game + Expansion 9000

Game 1:
Winner - Zombie/Plants (15 points)
2nd Place - Steampunk/Ghosts (13 points)
3rd Place - Wizard/Pirates (11 points)

Game 2:
I can't remember right now

I was the Steampunk/Ghosts and felt that I could've won, but 3rd place basically gave 1st place the victory and ended the game early by scoring the last base on his turn.

Although may want to take that with grain of salt since like 8 of my victory points came from chaining Invaders and Collectors together and I was playing against my 10 year old cousin, but whatevs, I'll try to remember to report what happens next time I play with my friends.
