It's here. Time to find out which game will win the Unplaced Worker in Punching Cardboard's 2014 Game of Tournaments. While there has been interest, we did not have enough offers to judge the games from real live humans, so we will assign each game to a playoff bound NHL team and let them decide the fate of board gaming as we know it.
After a lot of complex algorithms and random number rolls we have a final listing of games and the NHL teams that will represent them. Here are the pairings:
Maderia - Anaheim Ducks
Robinson Crusoe - Colorado Avalanche
Caverna: The Cave Farmers - Pittsburgh Penguins
Pathfinder: Adventure Card Game - Boston Bruins
Nations - San Jose Sharks
Russian Railroads - New Your Rangers
Bruxelles 1893 - St. Louis Blues
Tash-Kalar - Tampa Bay Lightning
Trains - Philadelphia Flyers
Bruges - Montreal Canadiens
Francis Drake - Los Angeles Kings
1775: The Rebellion - Chicago Blackhawks
Euphoria: Build a Better Dystopia - Detroit Red Wings
Rampage - Dallas Stars
Yedo - Columbus Blue Jackets
Freedom: The Underground Railroad - Minnesota Wild
Match-up analysis to follow.
After gaming together regularly for several months we found we had almost as much fun discussing games after we played. Finding the conversations amusing, we decided to commit some to tape and create a podcast. We hope you enjoy them as well!
