I'm hoping to encourage improvement to the database while also keeping the community active with this giveaway. Also, the contest start period is the moment yesterday's ended so that any potential posts weren't made in vain!

For today's first drawing the entries start at the end of yesterday's giveaway so that nothing you've contributed will be wasted :)

That's awesome I've been thinking of picking up a play mat my table has not been very friendly to cards.

is there any way to tell which games need improvement/more information? I'd love to find a list so that I could see what (if anything) I can contribute to.

Some element of nearly all games needs updating.  I've personally been focusing on updating the mechanics of as many games as possible.  If you want to find a random one that needs something, at the bottom of the page is the Fix a Bounty Game link.  It takes you to a random page and tells you what it needs.

Yes, thanks mdoom!

Categories and Mechanics are a big thing missing right now. If you look at the "All Games" list I've tried to ensure that the top 100 games have good data but there are over 20,000 in the database and if you just continue down the popular list order that would probably be the most beneficial for the users.

Another big area is Images. The website really only has the basic images from the publishers or retailers at this point. If you've got some good photos of games that would be great!
