For a game with multiple versions, go to the versions section, and click on browse.

Here is link to Fox and Geese version section:
http://boardgamegeek.com/browse/boardgameversion?linked_src_...

The "table" has basically three columns.

FIRST - rep version image

SECOND - Version name & Version Nickname

THIRD - Publisher

----------

In the first row as it is now:
- if you click on "20 to 2" you go to the main game entry for the
archetype "Fox and Geese" game.
- if you click on "Dearborn Industries Edition (1941)" you go to the version "20 to 2" which has a nickname "Dearborn Industries Edition (1941)"

---------

It is totally weird that if you click on the version name that you are taken to the "main" page for the archetype game. The center column should have something like:

[version=90030] Version name: 20 to 2
Version nickname: Dearborn Industries Edition (1941) [/version]

When you mouse over the names both ought to be "selected" as shown above. When you click on the selection you should goto the version.

Yeah, this is odd. Current behaviour:

Clicking the image goes to the version page.
Clicking the version goes to the main game page.
Clicking the publisher goes to the publisher page.

Preferred behaviour:

Clicking the image goes to the image page.
Clicking the version goes to the version page.
Clicking the publisher goes to the publisher page.

Related, but I could also add that the behaviour of the versions list on the game page is also rather odd.

Current behaviour:
Clicking the rep image of the version goes to the image page.

Preferred behaviour:
Clicking the rep image of the version goes to the versions page.
