Welcome to the 9th Annual Geek Madness Tournament!


Welcome to the annual Geek Madness Tournament! Every Spring, we pit the top 64-ranked teams against each other to crown one game the Geek-Certified Aldie Award winner. This is a single-elimination tournament where the game with the most votes (thumbs) advances to the next round.

The tournament will continue to use the format of previous years. All entries will be posted by a secondary account so that I will not be the recipient of all those valuable thumbs. A thumb for the GeekList is not required but encouraged and appreciated! Please help this stay on the front page to attract the attention of the most voters. Thanks!

Past Champions of the Aldie Award:
2011: Agricola
2010: Power Grid
2009: Twilight Struggle
2008: Power Grid
2007: Power Grid
2006: Power Grid
2005: Puerto Rico
2004: Tigris & Euphrates

Construction:
This year, a few tweaks were made to the construction of the bracket. I grabbed the top 60 games on Tuesday, February 28, 2012. Games that are too similar have been combined as one entry. The higher seed was given the combo while the lower of the pair vacated the seed. Eight games were paired up with their predecessor/variant and the four seeds at the bottom were also given to the nominees with the most votes. Games with an asterisk below received the most votes to fill the vacant seeds. Games were re-ranked on Wednesday, March 7, 2011 for the final seeding.

Tournament Bracketology 101:
It is easy to form seedings throughout a 64 team, single elimination tourney. In the first round, the seeding numbers added together always equal 65 (1 plays 64, 2 plays 63, 32 plays 33…). In the second round of 32 teams, assuming all of the top seeds win, the total of the two seeds will equal 33, and so on. If there is an upset win, then the winner takes over the spot of the higher seeded team it defeated.


Voting Is Closed for This Round

Comment: With both a collector edition last year, and a revised edition this year, WotR looks to make progress in 2012. But with Agricola probably standing in its way, this one will likely not rule them all.
