Anxious to see that, although it is a Mac Gerdts game, (IMPERIAL, IMPERIAL, IMPERIAL), i couldn't quite make up my mind about it just from reading the rules.

And it was such a hit at Essen!!! cool

And here's the latest vote results. This was a very unique vote, where every voter got to choose their top 5 Essen review copy games for me to cover... what do I mean by 'review copy'? Here's what I said in the ballot email:

Quote:
So as it turns out, 38 of those Essen games were free review copies direct from publishers. Up till now, I've tended to prioritize review copies for filming, as it just seems rude not to - they gave me a game for free, after all, so I generally try to cover it sooner than later, just to be polite (note: this is the only "special treatment" that review copies get, higher spots in the queue. For those who are curious, more info about my review policies can be found HERE).

And below are the results! NB: this does not define an absolute order list, but it does indicate a general order that I'll be following, with some switch ups here and there.

Anyway, the results:

48 Nations
43 The Glass Road
34 Madeira
32 Rokoko
28 Coal Barons
27 Tash Kalar Arena of Legends
20 Archon Glory & Machinations
20 SOS Titanic
19 Keyflower The Farmers
17 Castaways
17 Steam Park
16 Last Will Getting Sacked
15 Tzolkin: Tribes & Prophecies
13 Craftsmen
13 Dungeon Petz Dark Alleys
13 Suburbia Inc
12 Pandemic In the Lab
12 Rampage
11 Citrus
9 Core Worlds & Galactic Orders
9 Mount Everest
8 Among the Stars: The Ambassadors
8 Asgard
8 Galaxy Trucker + The Latest Models
8 Theseus
7 New Haven
7 Snowdonia Expansions
7 Space Sheep
6 Café Melange
6 L'Aeropostale
6 L'Fantome de l'Opera
5 Ark & Noah
5 Going Going Gone
4 Gunrunners
3 Pasha
2 The Outcast Heroes
2 Voluspa Order of the Gods
1 Pentos

FYI, even though Nations came out #1, it likely won't be first because it's still on the way in the mail (should be here any day now though!)

Actually, because the Keyflower expansion is on KS for just 10 more days, I think I'm going to have it jump the queue and go next, since there's a limited window for a lot of people to decide about getting it!

True True!!!

This was the only vote that i didn't select a game. I was not following all the buzz from essen so i was kinda lost on what to pick!

New voting time!!!

The ballot email spake thusly:

Quote:
Jen is going to be gone for 3 weeks in February, so I'm thinking I'm probably going to be able to increase my output during that time, which means I'm trying to get as many games played with her as I can before she leaves. But I figured I'd throw a vote out there so I can prioritize which games I'll be getting played in the short term, so I can be sure to get them filmed during Feb.

Everyone got to cast 5 votes for their top choices, and of those, I'm committing to covering the top 3. And the results are:

14 Airlines Europe
14 Bruxelles 1893
13 Descent Journeys in the Dark
12 Homesteaders
11 CV
11 Bremerhaven
11 Dungeon Petz Dark Alleys
10 Caylus Magna Carta
9 The Great Heartland Hauling Co.
9 Endeavor
8 Among the Stars: The Ambassadors
8 Targi
8 Colosseum
8 Asgard's Chosen
7 Craftsmen
7 Asgard
7 Alien Frontiers + Factions
7 Roads & Boats
6 Steam Park
6 Citrus
6 Café Melange
6 Ghost Stories
6 Le Havre: The Inland Port
6 A Study in Emerald
6 Vinhos
6 Ginkgopolis: The Experts
6 Fallen City of Karez
5 Core Worlds & Galactic Orders
5 L'Fantome de l'Opera
5 Dogs
5 Darkest Night
5 Might & Magic Heroes
5 Prosperity
5 Spyrium
4 Suburbia Inc
4 Pandemic In the Lab
4 The Gnomes of Zavandor
4 Walnut Grove
4 Blue Moon City
4 Jaipur
4 Briefcase
4 Battle Line
4 Garden Dice
4 Downfall of Pompeii
4 King & Assassins
4 Merkator
3 Tzolkin: Tribes & Prophecies
3 Rampage
3 Galaxy Trucker + The Latest Models
3 L'Aeropostale
3 K2
3 Tournay
3 Ninjato
3 Carcassonne: The Castle
3 Alea Iacta Est
3 Saint Malo
3 The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game
3 Nefarious
3 Di Renjie
3 Gauntlet of Fools
3 It Happens
3 Boss Monster
3 Nauticus
2 New Haven
2 Battle for Souls
2 Il Vecchio
2 Glastonbury
2 Going Going Gone
2 Seeland
2 Serica: Plains of Dust
2 Tinners' Trail
2 The Doge Ship
2 Castle Panic + The Wizard's Tower
2 Letnisko
2 Power Grid: The First Sparks
2 Rockwell

2 Vasco da Gama
2 Thunderstone
2 Star Trek Expeditions
2 LoW: Scoundrels of Skullport
2 Escape: Quest
2 Karnag
2 Mount Everest
1 Snowdonia Expansions
1 Paradise Fallen
1 S-Evolution
1 Star Wars: The Queen's Gambit
1 Ark & Noah
1 Hanabi
1 Gunrunners
1 Stone Age + Style is the Goal
1 Vampire Empire
1 Adlungland
1 Card City
1 Quarantine
1 Saint Petersburg
1 Tikal II: The Lost Temple
1 Voluspa Order of the Gods
1 Cargo Noir
1 Dominion
1 Drako
1 Dungeon Roll
1 Pentos
1 Rattus Cartus
1 Sanssouci
1 Tahiti
1 The City
1 Tikal
1 Siberia the Card Game
1 Venetia
1 Stone & Relic
1 Palmyra
1 Yunnan
1 Metallum
1 Fjords
1 Industrial Waste
1 Confusion
1 Samurai
1 Merchants of the Middle Ages
1 Jab Realtime Boxing
1 Castle
1 Artus
1 Paperclip Railways
1 PAX
1 Lancaster Henry V expansion

Big surprise that Airlines Europe came out of nowhere to dominate like that. Homesteaders, which previously had not gotten much love, also surged unexpectedly and almost made the top 3. Same for Caylus Magna Carta! What is going on here???

Anyway, 2nd round of votes will be up in a few days

I wonder if anyone else had the same issue with Gmail that I did. The email I received through Gmail clipped the message, excluding all games after those starting with 'L'. I didn't notice until I had cast all my votes.

I just tested this, and yeah, when viewed in a browser, Gmail clips off the 2nd half of the mail, but there should be a line at the bottom of the mail for you saying

Quote:
[Message clipped] View entire message

which does then open the entire mail properly. If there were games you wanted to see above 'L', just go ahead and vote again, and I'll remove your first 5 votes!

Man, just when I think I can't hate Gmail any more, Google finds a way!

Unfortunately the same hapenned to me, and when i click to extend, now i cant answer because when i click on it the messages open outlook instead of answering through gmail.

But i dont think i would've voted different, thats just food for thought

Well, you can rest assured that Battle for Souls, Snowdonia Expansions, Steam Park, Targi, Darkest Night and In the Lab will get covered before too long, as they're review copies!

Actually, it just so happens that I noticed this afternoon (while looking into the gmail 'cutting off emails' thing) that Gmail had decided to label a bunch of votes as spam (about 12 of the replies or so). I checked and they didn't change the top 3, so I just deleted them and didn't update (though I really should have). I suspect that maybe one of yours was one that got randomly flagged by Gmail for whatever stupid reason.

Rest assured it won't be happening in the future. Apparently you can't turn off Gmails spam filter (yet another complaint that goes on my long list of Gmail hate), but you can set up a filter to not move all things marked as spam to the spam folder.

So that should take care of it, though for the next few votes, I'll double check that spam filter (which doesn't seem to show up in IMAP at all, even though I've told it to) in case it happens again!

Sorry about that!

Man, I always seem to vote against the grain. It's hard for me to believe that only one other person and I voted for Mount Everest.
