I agree. None of the games I picked won, so it MUST be the problem of fraud in the voting process.

Clearly, any award with "Geek" in the title should go to a game where the Transformers square off once and for all against your favorite Star Wars characters. I'm voting Attacktix in '07.

I swore secrecy about the actual voting process, but it's so tainted that I have to speak up.

Yo see, Even Aldie couldn't figure out how in the world the ranked pairs system worked, so he just decided to ask the BGG.con attendees to shout the name of their favorite nominees. Whichever name was louder won. It just happens that a game show team whose name is not fit for this thread, that included such luminaries as Octavian and Chaddyboy, brought a bullhorn and voted for Caylus and Twilight Struggle whenever possible.

So yes, it would have been better to leave the counting to Diebold.

I heard that Caylus won, but afterwards had no idea how and didn't have much fun anyway.

Well, clearly, everyone who dislikes Caylus probably sucks at it. (ducks)

Let me ask you something. When you come in on Mondays, and you're not
feeling too well, does anybody ever come up to you and say "sounds like
someone's got a case of the Mondays"?

LAWRENCE
No. No, man, shit, no, man. I believe you get your ass kicked for
sayin' something like that, man.

PETER
Huh.


I warned you .....don't say I didn't
