WELCOME TO RPGGEEK MADNESS!!

Round two of RPGGeek Madness 2019 is here! Every Spring, we pit the top core rules, settings, modules, splatbooks, and RPG boxed sets against each other in a single elimination tournament to determine which is the best. Here is how it works:

1 I create a list of the best RPG Items that get in as automatic entries
2 You nominate additional RPG Items and everyone votes on those
3 I take the winners and seed the tournament
4 You vote each round in pairs of match ups for the best game
5 I set up the next round with the winners and we repeat
6 One item gets crowned as the winner of RPGGeek Madness!

I don't vote but I do break all ties.

This is the second round of 32 games. Voting is now closed!

This tournament is supposed to be fun. Comments and friendly trash talking is highly encouraged.
