For this sheep game, enter 26 different board games, one starting with each of the 26 letters.

Scoring: Standard sheep scoring (1 point for every player that gave that answer, including you). However you may also skip up to half of the letters, scoring 3 per letter you skip this way (regardless of how many people skip it).

All answers should be board games on BGG; don't guess or research. Skip the letter if you can't think of an answer.

Submitting:
Enter one answer per line in the large box. A ? or the letter will denote a skipped answer. Also enter your username in the next box.

Example wrote:
Alphabest
Best
C
?
E


https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeFfzUirt-bIY86SToQ...

Deadline is Noon BGG time on 1/1/2017

Details:
This is somewhat subjective, so keep that in mind.
You are allowed to ignore prefix words like "A", "The" and so on, if you want.
Don't simply choose games from the hotness or a similar "always available" source. However all games on BGG are acceptable answers, so there's some trust involved here.
Don't use a game more than once.

Prizes:
First place: 6 GG
Second place: 3 GG
Third place: 1 GG
Secret category: 1 GG
Secret category: 1 GG

I feel like each letter should be normalized based on the number of people who bow out so you don't have some letters with only a few answers submitted. Like, if only half the field gives an answer, the scores should be doubled.

This could work for a future game. I can talk more about my motivation for this scoring system after the game is over.

so, don't research, meaning don't look through the list of games alphabetically? Or don't do any research at all... just come up with games from memory?

I updated the original post to clarify this is referring to board games. I apologize that wasn't clear in the original post.

Yeah they should be board games from memory. Of course it's hard not to run into board game names on this site, but don't go looking for specific ones.

I've had a better experience with no research sheep games. You can pass on some letters if you can't think of any games starting with that letter.

You can resubmit board games if you want.

Also you should post your list (if you want to) after the game. It's pretty impressive.

Contig, in my dream last night I "met" you, except I've already met you, so it was this guy pretending to be you very poorly who didn't realize we'd met and you look nothing like him. He had a voice synthesizer so he sounded like you over TTS, though, and he was really confused why I didn't believe him. =)

Why after the game... I'd love to see your alphabetical list of WW games.

I'll start posting answers at 2:30 or a bit later so I'll have enough time to reformat answers and look things over.
