Before submitting a score sheet please check if it doesn’t already exists in the Available score sheets or the Score sheet queue

Please remember, present all info like we don’t know the game!

If possible add a link to the rules of the game and a picture of the score sheet if it already exists, but also always add the score sheet template like described below.

To submit a score sheet template please send an email to: apps [at] eerko.nl

This email should contain the following information: 

1) E-mail subject

The subject of the email should consist of:

  • the text “Score sheet Template”
  • the BGG id of the game
  • the name of the game

So if you would want to submit a score sheet for Ark Nova the subject should be:
Score sheet Template 342942 Ark Nova” 

– If you think a current score sheet is incorrect, add “Update” at the end of the subject line:
Score sheet Template 342942 Ark Nova Update

– If you want to add another language, add the language at the end of the subject line:
Score sheet Template 342942 Ark Nova English

2) Score sheet template

In the body of the email please provide the following:

  • the BGG id of the game
  • the name of the game
  • language of the score sheet
  • the scoresheet itself 

A score sheet should contain all lines with text that the score sheet consists of.
Number the lines and put the text between quotes.

Always try to use the terminology and order that is used in the official rules as much as possible.

An example, if you want to submit a score sheet for Ganz schön clever:

BGG id: 244522
Name: That's Pretty Clever
Language: English
1 “Yellow”
2 “Blue”
3 “Green”
4 “Orange”
5 “Purple”
6 “Foxes”

A total score will always be added.

A few options are available

Negative
If a score is always negative you can indicate that on the score sheet.

Groups
Sometimes scoring lines are grouped, optional a group can have a label (title). A group can also have an optional subtotal.

Checkboxes and radio buttons
A checkbox or radio button can add a value or indicate a game was won.

Colours
It is possible to add colours to rows, please add the RGB-hex code per row. Please note this could look a bit different than anticipated, if the colours don’t work, I’ll remove them.
Please only add colours if they add something like clarity clarity and are actually clearly present and used in the game.
If you do provide colours, please provide a colour for every row (including headers for groups) and expansion rows. If a colour is not provided for all rows, we might not add any colours.

Expansions
If an expansion needs an extra line and/or needs to remove a line indicate this, use the BGG id of the expansion also.

Repeating a row
Sometimes you don’t know how many rows you need, so you indicate this as a repeating row.

If you think you need any of these options, describe them below your list of score lines. For example:

Line 3 is negative.
A Group with title “Goals”, has a subtotal consists of lines 1, 2 and 3.
Lines 4 and 5 are in a group without title.

Rounds

If the game scores in several rounds with repeating lines of scores, please indicate the minimum and maximum (or unlimited) number of rounds that are expected. Each round can contain one or more score lines, but no groups.

Round-specific scoring:
Besides the above score sheet type where all scores are added up to determine a winner, when using Rounds there are also other sheet scorings available:

  • Best single rounds wins (you fill in scores for every round, but per player only the highest score wins)
  • Best of x rounds wins (eg. To win best of 3 you need to win 2 rounds)
DONT FORGET
  • We don’t support icons in score sheets, so always provide a name for each icon.
  • If a game has another way to count points during a game, like a score track, put this in the sheet, as the first line.
  • Try to use the terminology and order that is used in the official rules as much as possible.
  • If you send in a translation also use the official published rules and please send the translation in the same order as the original sheet.
