My game Terraforming - The Fruidic Craft tied with 2 others with 200 votes but it is not one of the semi-finalists? Any chance of still being considered?

Technically, all games still have a chance per the rules:

"At the end of the voting period the top 20 games will become semi-finalists and move on to the next phase. If there is a tie for the 20th spot, then the game that was submitted to the contest first, will win the tie. 

If they feel it necessary, judges are permitted to add extra games to the semi-finalist list from those that were not selected by the community. To date, this has never happened." (This needs to be updated though as it has happened once in the last contest.)

A member of our community exploited a bug to get your game up to 200. You were at 190 at the end of the contest. I'm sorry, but your game didn't make the semi-finals. However, as Zovu pointed out, that doesn't mean the judge won't override community voting to get you into the finals. Semi-finals are just a guide post for the judge, they aren't hard and fast.
