I'm running the Top 100 Boardgames League, the latest round of which you can find here: Top 100 Boardgames League - Round 21 [POLL]
This extreme edition is an offshoot of that which proved unexpectedly popular. It also shows quite different results, so I'm intrigued enough to carry on running it for a while to see where it goes.

In the other League voters are instructed to vote for "up to 5 games" in each Tier. This more hardcore version allows you to vote for only ONE game in each Tier. I'm interested to see if we get different champions this way, also to see what games prosper/suffer compared to the main contest.
My expectation is that the some of the well known games that were picking up a lot of 'cheap' #4 or #5 votes will find the going tough, while some of the exceptional niche games could do well.
