Wow! Good luck! I don't want to put a dampener on it, but, honestly, as a viewer, I'm not sure I'll be able to keep up with watching the videos at that rate. But I guess I'll have to try.

Don't worry, if I pull it off, I imagine I'll take some time off after Jen returns to relax, giving everyone plenty of time to catch up

One video a day? Wow! I hope you're not going to get burned out!

Don't feel like you have to, even doing only half of that would be a lot

So I told the voters about this, and that their votes would be combined between the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd ballots of July to create a master list of games I'd be covering over this time frame, and here's the results:

There are so many interesting games on that list...

I'm already drooling and my wallet is crying.

I agree. I can't wait for the videos to come, but resting a bit is also important.

What concerns me the most is how many games I am going to feel compelled to purchase. It's sooooo long until Christmas, it's going to be hard to defer getting more games after seeing so many inspiring videos.

I think that Tournay should have appeared on that master list with three votes for the entirety of July, no?

(If I knew this was coming up, I'd have voted for it, too, but it should make the cut regardless)

I just checked, and I'm pretty sure Tournay got 2 votes in the first ballot, but none in the 2nd and 3rd. And you're right, one more vote would have put it in the list...

Oh, I get it now, the third results were already for 1st+2nd+3rd voted tallied up together. What's surprising about that, though: Navegador lost a vote in the process. 4 votes in the first round, 6 in the second round, but only 9 in the final results. And Runebound switched from first to second edition, not that I mind.

Actually, I forgot when I posted the 1st or 2nd tally, I put up modified numbers that I use for tie breakers - basically in the XL sheet, I've got the column with the true tally, which is what I care about, and then I've got another one where 2nd votes got +50% added to them, and 3rd votes got 100% added to them. I only used this alternate one to break the ties on which should make the cut, but I accidentally copy & pasted from it

This is why Goa, Runebound, Spellbound, Pergamon, and Biblios made the cut with only 2 votes, but others with 2 votes didn't (Alien Frontiers, Karnag, Star Wars Queens Gambit, Tournay, Fairy Tale).

In case you're curious, K, here's a link to the full results in XL: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/720402/votes.xls

I didn't mean to nag, just wanted to help make things right, maybe. I'm already quite happy and even a bit surprised that Fury of Dracula was in there, which I originally was rooting for, I'm sure that Tournay will make the cut sooner or later. Thanks for the full disclosure, though!

Oh, I just figured that since you're a skinned math nerd, you couldn't help but be drawn to the numbers

Yup, depending on what level you backed at, you get 1, 2, or 3 votes every month for games that *will* be filmed, whether I like it or not (I don't mind, really! ) There's also a higher level where people can vote for, or choose directly, what games will be bought with the funds I raised from the KS.

When those folks vote, in the ballot I send along, I also point them to the request geeklist, and include the 'top 10 choices' from that list, based on thumbs, so that everyone can have a voice in the voting.

BTW, I'm still accepting donations, post Kickstarter, for folks who want to get in on the voting

Also, for anyone who wants to ever see a full breakdown of all the voting, here's a link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yolg1dirr21njx3/votes.xls

So glad to see Goa. I've been checking each day to see if you've covered that one to no avail. Thought it may have fallen by the wayside.

Thanks voters!
