Once more into the breach, dear friends - once more the time of wounded wallets wailing in pain are upon us: The 2019 People’s Choice Top 200 Solo Games is here.

As in previous years, I’ll host a contest, where the winner gets to go home with the world famous No Prize™ award. It can be picked up at my house somewhere in Europe on the 42nd of Febtember in the Year of the Penguin.

Last year I made significant changes to the questions shortly before posting the contest and didn’t think things through. The results were – well, let’s just say it gave Gary plenty of ammo for taunting me.

To avoid repeating that debacle, I’ve made a simpler system this year. It’s a series of hopefully easy to understand yes-no questions. Unless you take this contest more seriously than intended, you don’t need to spend much time: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScoPQ-Kq9y0O1mKkxj1...

To participate you must follow the link and answer the questions.

In case you want to get serious about winning the contest you can consult last year’s list when answering the questions: 2018 PC Top 100.

The first question "Will Mage Knight be #1?" is worth 3 VP all other questions are worth 1 VP each.

I won’t be doing the scoring for all of you. Instead, you have to report your VPs in the comment section below this post as you gain them. I’ll keep a ranked list up to date. Doing it this way gives more opportunities for banter and interaction.

Please, please, pretty please with cherries on top, report your total score instead of only the VP gained since last time and use a new comment each time instead of updating a previous comment (I get notifications about new comments, but not about updates to existing ones).


Cherry on top.



The winner is the participant who has the most VP after all 200 games have been revealed. In case of ties the winner is the participant whose username is hardest for me to pronounce backwards.

Have fun and may you lose spectacularly!



At irregular intervals, I'll go through the submissions and send out each set of answers to the person who submitted them.

The only way I could find to make it possible for you to access your own answers is to have them automatically sent via email after completing the form. But to do that, I'd be forced to add email address as a mandatory field and I don't want to make giving me your email address mandatory to participate in the contest.

If someone knows of a better way to do this in Google Forms, then I'd love to know about it.
