Now that folks have finished psycho-analyzing me, it's now time to launch the 2012 Avalon Hill Cup. This will be the fourth annual polling contest that I have held which pits the games published by the original Avalon Hill Game Company (even if previously or subsequently published by another company).

Unlike most polling contests, I have structured this event quite differently. Modeled after the English Football Association Cup (The FA Cup), games are first seeded (by BGG's ranking as of today), then sorted by rank into "leagues". These leages are staggered into the tournament, with some games receiving byes until deep into the tournament. Each round, games are RANDOMLY DRAWN to create unpredictable matchups. Top games may meet sooner than they may otherwise meet in a bracketed tournament, and lesser games have the opportunity to become "Giant Killers," a lower ranked game defeating a much higher ranked title (generally, one of the two top leagues of teams in the FA Cup). The voting results will be converted into a football/soccer-style score, including tie scores which will result in replays in later rounds where voting is close.

Like last year, I will be including the games of Victory Games, for a total field of 304 games. I have returned to straight ranking to determing initial seeds. Also continuing the model from last year, I've taken the current English League and Nonleague tables to associate an English football club with every game.

In an effort to speed up the contest, and to reduce the amount of postings on my part, I will dispense with replays during Qualifying Rounds. Once the proper rounds begin, replay rounds will begin.

Please subscribe to this thread to keep track of the pairings, discuss the matchups, find links to each round, and to root on your favorite games and/or clubs.

Re: The 2012 AH Cup Discussion and Subscription Thread (First Qualifying Round Draw Posted)

Remember playing the old Amiga game 'Player Manager' (as bad as it sounds) where you start off in charge of a bottom division team and are literally the only player on the pitch who can pass the ball - bearing in mind you had to actually physically play every game if you didn't want to get beaten 9-0.

After weeks of real time gaming and by buying players who knew what the back of the oppositions net looked like, I eventually got offered my dream job - manager of Leeds United. And then my save game promptly corrupted...

You never get that time back.
