Welcome to the 10th Annual Geek Madness Tournament! We've reached DIME status!

Welcome to the annual Geek Madness Tournament! Every Spring, we pit the top 64-seeded 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:
2012: Agricola
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 50 games on Monday, February 25, 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. Fourteen games were allowed to be nominated and filled slots 45-48 (the top votes) and slots 55-64. Games with an asterisk below received the most votes to fill the vacant slots. Games were re-ranked on Wednesday, March 6, 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

Overall Record: 8-4
Best finish: Quarter-Finalist 2012

Comment: Pandemic seemed to be on its way out until its turnaround year in '12, spreading to 3-1. It was eradicated by Power Grid in 2011 and Dominion in both 2010 and 2009. A more favorable seed should show it to be just as resilient this year.

24 Summoner Wars (Combo) vs. 41 Sid Meier's Civilization: The Board Game 

Fun Fact: Eliminated by the Big 4 the past two years (PG and PR)
Overall Record: 2-2
Best finish: Participant

Comment: Drawing the heavy weights in the 2nd round has declined Civilization making it to the 3rd round. With a more favorable seed, this could advance to the Semi-Finals before facing that elite group (TS).
