Round 8 Structure

We're down to our final four, with Race for the Galaxy, Go / Weiqi, and Food Chain Magnate surviving the Losers' bracket. Twilight Struggle has already beaten two of these games, so a win over Food Chain Magnate will clinch the championship; the only way it can fail to earn at least a share of the championship is if Food Chain Magnate wins both its matches and Race for the Galaxy beats Go / Weiqi.

There are 12 games left in the consolation bracket - the 4 winners from Round 7 are joined by the 5 knocked out of the main bracket in Round 6 and the 3 knocked out in Round 7. Each game will be a part of two matches - one three-way and one four-way, and the final standings will take into account the results of both (as well as previous losses in the tournament).

I have also added some bonus matches (including recent consolation exits along with a few other games based on results vs. games still in the tournament), and an item for a complete ranking of all the games (for a group pairwise ranking).

General Rules

Voting is open only to GameChat League 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. If you are a member/contributor, feel free to vote even if you haven't nominated or voted in previous rounds!

In each matchup, vote for as many games as you like - how you determine your favorite(s) 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 any of the games to vote.

New this year: Vote trading will not be allowed in the main tournament (Rounds 1-9).

Ties will be broken by number of nominations, followed by number of top 12 lists, followed by Borda count, followed by me holding up pictures of the two games and letting my 2.5 3.5 4.5 month old choose.

In some cases similar games were combined, and entries with multiple editions are meant to include all/your-choice-of-all editions. Expansions are also included (if you prefer).

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...
