Lemonade Stall collected 31 thumbs and the comment got 4 last round.

The winner got more thumbs than the geeklist itself. This was a very wise strategy, because Kingbrick always got a lot of thumbs after the geeklist entered the frontpage.

Congratulations and hopefully the game will be ranked soon. It has 26 ratings by now. This game is no longer really overlooked, a lot of gamers know it by now and it is print and play, so everybody can try it.

KingBrick won almost every round, but in the finals the opponent was to strong for the King of this battle. The King is uncrowned by lemonade, strange....

Now our tournament came to the end.

From the 54 games on the first list are now 2 games ranked and I believe they will be followed by some more. Maybe there are some reasons why these games are overlooked, but it was fun to see these very differnt games here.

For the next battle in december (Yes I will do it again) I think it is better to have less rounds. My plan: A final with 3 games, 3 semi-finals with 3 games each (9 games in total), 9 quarter-finals with 3 games each(27 games) and 27 duels in the first round with 2 games against each other. 54 games in total.

This will be 2 rounds less.

Thank you everybody for joining in this important battle.....
