Twilight Struggle Statistics Project!

Hey guys

A friend and I have been playing Twilight Struggle every weekend for the past 2 years now and it is still exciting as ever. Recently we decided to start collecting some basic statistics just using Google Drive and while we only have a sample size of 30 the USSR was winning about 70% of the games. As such we just started playing with +1IP which usually goes into Iran.

Anyways the statistics are actually really interesting and I was wondering if anyone else has been doing this? I am also looking to collect more data and I was wondering if there is any interest in expanding this project? That is to say I(or someone else) can create and share a Google Spreadsheet and players can input their data?

My spreadsheet is pretty primitive at the moment and I am looking for ideas on what data to collect, so if there is any interest please let me know!


Christiaan

PS if you want to see what we have collected thus far I would be happy to share.

You should talk to DaniŽl Hogetoorn.  He runs ETSL over at http://unitedfriendseu.wordpress.com/.  I believe that he has a log of every league game played over the past few years.

In a sample size of 48 games between the same friend and me, the US has won 24 games, the USSR has won 23 games, and we tied once.  Very odd, considering we're not playing with any extra IP.  Maybe we just need to learn better Soviet strategy.  ^_^

As Michael Patnik already mentioned, I have a large archive of ETSL and online WC game logs (unfortunately not all), but I keep statistics of all official games/leagues/events I play or organize:

ETSL (season 1 and 2 are hidden, just unhide them if you want to see them; this file is continuously being updated): http://unitedfriendseu.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/etsl-game-results-season-330.xlsx

Online TS World Championships 2013: http://unitedfriendseu.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/ts-wc-2013-results-total.xlsx

TS tournament Amsterdam 2013: http://unitedfriendseu.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/ts-convention-2013-results-total2.xlsx

TS play by email: http://unitedfriendseu.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/united-friends-ts-scores24.xlsx

As you can see, I don't keep track of important card plays or such. If somebody is interested in certain game logs, please mail me on dhogetoorn@gmail.com. I will be happy to send them, although like I said, I haven't got them all (and certainly not well organized yet ;-)).
