Greetings all. For those who don't know, BoardGameGeek.com is a wonderful community run website all about boardgames. It's like the imdb.com of boardgames. Every year, during the time of March Madness, BGG does their own "Geek Madness". They pit games against each other in an elimination bracket system similar to the NCAA contest, and have the community vote which of the two games in each bracket is better. Our beloved X-Wing game is in this years brackets, and we need your help and vote to make sure it makes it to Sweet 16!
The first round, X-Wing was pitted against a popular Eurogame called "Castles of Burgendy". But thanks to all the fans, it won 672 votes to 635 votes. Now we're in round two, which ends tomorrow afternoon, and we're up against a very popular game, Ticket To Ride. As of time of the post, the voting count is 737 to 607, with Ticket To Ride in the lead! We need your vote to beat this hohum game and show everyone that X-Wing has wings (pun intended)!
To vote, go to this page here: http://www.boardgame...681#item2563681 Underneath the picture of the X-Wing box, there is a green "thumb" icon. Click on it and it will record your vote. You probably have to be a BGG member to do so, it's free, just register and start enjoying the world of boardgames, but don't forget to vote!
There are surely 150 more fans here who have not yet voted on BGG! Come show us your support and get X-Wing on to round 3!
