Voting is open only to GCL members and regular contributors to a GCL (others will be disregarded). If you are not on a GCL roster, please add a comment letting me know which GCL(s) you contribute to so that your vote is not ignored.

In each matchup, vote for your favorite game - how you determine your favorite is up to you. You are of course free to abstain if you feel you are not able to make a sufficiently informed decision; however, you are not required to have played both games (or even one of them!) to vote. Please use the last item to tell us whether you have played each game or not - this won't have any effect on which game advances, but we will be tracking how the results would have changed if only using votes from those who have played both games.

In some cases similar games were combined (Age of Steam/Steam, Netrunner/Android: Netrunner, Ticket to Ride Family), and entries with multiple editions are meant to include all/your-choice-of-all editions (Warhammer, Blood Bowl, A Game of Thrones: The Board Game, The Resistance/The Resistance: Avalon). Expansions are also included.

Vote with your thumbs! Each round will last about four days. If you haven't already, make sure you subscribe to GCL Madness Subscription Thread so you don't miss a round... assuming the subscription feature stays up! (I'll post reminders if it continues to be down often.)
