After noticing how much interest and fun were generated by recent Board Games "competitions" like: Le Tour de Geek, Geek Madness, Geek Minor League and the Promotion/Relegation battle; I thought it would be nice to have a competition similar to the World Cup of Soccer.

So, here you have it! The Board Games World Cup ! (Please, consider THUMBING this list so more geeks can take part of the polls!)

How does it work ?
- 64 Board Games were assigned to 16 groups. That was part random and part using BGG Ranking;
- Games face each other and points will be awarded soccer-like (3 points for win, 1 point for tie);
- Classification of the groups is made using soccer criteria: most points win, if tied check: victories, balance of goals, most goals made and face-to-face match result;
- Only the winner of each group will go through;
- Games with versions, expansions and so on (like Dominion, War of The Ring) were considered as only one entry.

Goals? What do you mean?
- Answer the polls stating which game of a given pair is the one you prefer.
- Goals are assigned based on the percentage of votes that a game gets:

From 00% to 39,99% - no goals
From 40% to 52,99% - one goal
From 53% to 64,99% - two goals
From 65% to 74,99% - three goals
From 75% to 100,0% - four goals

So for example if the winner has 51% of the votes, the match is a draw: 1-1. We add all results and check the group winner. After we get the 16 winners, a truly random selection (Using BGG die roller) will create the next 4 groups for the semi-final phase. The winners of each of these groups will then be on the great final!


Current Standings:
Groups I, J, K and L are already having their matches being played here, go there and help your game score a goal!
