UPDATE: After about 18 hours, we've managed to push the rating from the high 5000s Wednesday afternoon to the high 2000s on Tuesday morning. This is excellent.

Please feel free to repost this anywhere.

WTF is getting it to number one doing to help him with the cancer?

Also he of course would know it wasn't because the game deserved it though he might had liked the shown support if he even ever noticed it (maybe he do.)

I thought this was about raising money which eventually could had actually helped in some way depending on where he was from and his own economy and so on.

Guess this is one of the times when you'd better shut up than say anything but you're free to ignore everything I said.


For me BGG is serious and I want it to stay that way. I don't want people to mess up the usefulness of BGG.

Fighting Cancer and supporting those suffering through it is a damn sight more important than a web site about games.

Couldn't agree more, I've got it rated 4 at the moment and while it's a silly gesture that doesn't really change anything it'd be cool if some collective show of support from loads of people made a dent.

I take your point, but it's just a nice way to wish Todd all the best. If he sees that people on BGG voted his game into the top 100 or even the top 10 as a good-will gesture, I'm sure it would cheer him up. And as the OP said, that could even make a difference to his prognosis, as mindset can have a real effect on health.

I don't see how undermining the BGG ranking system helps anyone. Perhaps the OP should explore starting a charity fund/auction.

Saying that, I wish him and his family the best.

It's a temporary feel-good tactic. I don't expect these rating to be permanent any more than they were with the My Little Pony game.

I am mindless, a shambling twilight revenant, shuffling forward with my fellow undead. A single syllable endlessly repeated by our grave-eaten lips:

"10"

Love it or hate it, its everywhere.

Designer Todd Breitenstein is fighting cancer which just hit stage IV in his lungs. More detail here: http://www.twilightcreationsinc.com/en/index.html


Guys, if we could do it for a dumb pony game, we can do it here.

They say spirit and attitude are a major factor in battling cancer.

Go to the Zombies!!! page, rate it a 10.

Don't care about the ratings. Care about supporting someone who needs it.

Let's get it to Number one for a few days.

UPDATE: After about 18 hours, we've managed to push the rating from the high 5000s Wednesday afternoon to the high 2000s on Tuesday morning. This is excellent.

This is tremendously touching (more than words can say). I will make sure Todd visits the thread. Thank you so much for your support through such a hard time! This will indeed help his mood!!!

It's a "get well card" of sorts. Todd is a BGG regular and knows how the site works. He's not going to think "oooh I am at the top, yay me!" It's an outpouring of support to his family that everyone can have a hand in. Think of the numbers and people that it would take to get zombies there. The numbers of people that are pulling for him. That's what he'd take away from it. We're a part of his community.
