Hello!

Welcome to the Preliminary Round 2 of the Geek Minor League Championship!

In the Preliminary Rd 1 forty games battled for a place in the Rd2, but only 20 make through. Now it is time to vote for the ones that will face de Top 10 seeds in the main bracket! Oh, the excitement!

Some data from the last round:

- Highest single vote (winner): Citadels with 126 votes
- Lowest single vote (winner): Tinner's Trail with 65 votes
- Highest single vote (loser): Vikings with 84 votes
- Biggest Loser: Yomi with 36 Votes
- Most heated dispute: Citadels x Thurn and Taxis (201 votes)
- Coldest dispute: Chicago Express x Yomi (121 votes)
- Biggest blow out: PitchCar over At the Gates of Loyang (59 votes of difference)
- Tightest race: Innovation over Vikings (03 votes of difference)
- 11 wins for the better seeded and 09 upsets

- Total votes for the Preliminary Round 1: 3009 (75.22 average)

Previous rounds:
Preliminary Round 1


The basics:

- I gather, starting from the game ranked 64 (Game of Thrones - 2ed) up, the games that didn't appear in the Geek Madness Tournament, and going so far as the game ranked 181 (Letters from Whitechapel) - they form the Minor League.

- The first 10 seeds don't have an opponent yet. This is the function of the two preliminary rounds.

- How they are seeded? By rank. The first 10 don't have opponents right from the start. The seeds 11 to 54 face each other according to their seeds. The seeds 55 to 94 will face face each other according to their seeds, and 10 of them will become the opponents for the top 10 seeds (you can see this in the image bellow).

- As in the Geek Madness Tournament, games were united to form one entry - it is possible, probable even, that a few games that should form one entry, didn't. I'm sorry for this. And there is something I did: Blood Bowl (Third Edition) & Blood Bowl: Team Manager - The Card Game formed one single entry. "But, but... they are not similar in mechanics! Only use the same theme!". I know. I just wanted to add more games. So consider that you are voting for the Blood Bowl team.


Rules (this bit is an almost word-by-word of the Geek Madness Rules):

For each match-up, vote for your favorite game by clicking on the thumbs-up icon. This round ends April 10th, without a definitive end hour (will end when I choose). 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!

You may vote for any games, whether you have owned or played them. You can vote based on any criteria that is important to you. You can cheer for your team, recruit legitimate voters, and rib the other team - just keep it modestly civil! Please feel free to comment on the games and match-ups, and most importantly, have fun!

IMPORTANT: This is meant as a fun competition. Please only vote with your main User account, i.e., ONE VOTE PER PERSON PER GAME PER ROUND (yes, you may vote for both games in a pairing if you really are undecided). Do not create "dummy" or shill accounts to vote multiple times as those votes will be voided if discovered.
