How to Participate:
1 Write a review for any video game and submit it to the appropriate game's database page on VGG during the contest month. Add a link to your review as a new item on this geeklist before the last day of the month. Add a separate geeklist item for each entry.
2 Earn geekgold! If your review is around 500 words or more (and, ideally, contains images) you will receive a 2 door prize simply for entering it in the contest. You will receive a 1 door prize if your review is very short.
3 Earn more geekgold! There is an optional theme each month. Any reviews meeting this theme will be awarded an extra 3 entry bonus. Simply state in your entry whether or not you meet the optional theme.
Tips to this geeklist are appreciated!

The Fine Print: (last updated August 2017)
- There is no minimum word count requirement. The geekgold door prize is awarded to all entries that are near to or exceed 500 words.
- Users may enter any number of reviews they wish each month. Users entering multiple reviews may receive multiple awards in the same month.
- Soliciting participation for the contest as a whole is acceptable and encouraged. Soliciting votes for a specific review is prohibited, and may result in disqualification.
- Any user may vote in the poll regardless of whether or not they submitted a review. Each user may only vote once. Creating additional accounts for the purpose of voting is prohibited.
- Winning an award one month does not prohibit a user from participating in subsequent months.
- Award placement is determined by a weighted majority vote. Votes for 1st place earn 4 points, 2nd place 3 points, 3rd place 2 points, and 4th place 1 point. Placement is determined by points following the vote.
- Ties in award placement will be broken by the number of votes for 1st place, followed by number of votes for 2nd place, then 3rd place, and lastly 4th place. If the tied reviews received exactly the same number of votes in all categories, then the tied reviews will remain tied and earn the same award placement. The subsequent award places will be skipped. (E.g. if 2 reviews tie for 2nd, there will be no 3rd place award.)

Poll: Video Game Review Contest – April 2019
Poll Description:
After reading the reviews submitted this month, award points to the ones you like. Please base your vote on the quality of the review (whatever that means to you) and not on whether you like the reviewed game, are friends with the author, or any other bias.
Please vote on EXACTLY 4 reviews!
Give your favourite 4 points, second favourite 3 points, third gets 2 points, and last gets 1 point. That's 4 votes, each a different column.
Thanks!
Vote for the best reviews of the month from April 2019

A game about throwing babies out of burning hospitals? Okay.

Bad Evacuation Procedures

The babies fly through the air... Count it only if you want to.

Edit: Link to approved review.
