Hello!

Welcome to the MAIN BRACKET Quarter-finals of the Geek Minor League Championship!

In the Round 3 sixteen games battled for a place in the Quarter-finals, and yours favorites 8 get through. It wasn't the best of the ideas to start the round in the beginning of the month, when the competition in geeklists is fierce, so the number of votes dropped sharply. However, except for one match, all the others would probably follow suit the votes so far.

Anyway, here is some data from the last round:

- Highest single vote (winner): San Juan with 69 votes
- Lowest single vote (winner): Village with 48 votes
- Highest single vote (loser): Battle Line with 56 votes
- Biggest Loser: Amun-Re with 35 votes
- Most heated dispute: Battle Line x Cosmic Encounter (122 votes)
- Coldest dispute: Glen More x Village (84 votes)
- Biggest blow out: Acquire over Amun-Re (29 votes of difference)
- Tightest race: Macao over Ingenious (02 votes of difference)
- 05 wins for the better seeded and 03 upsets

- Total votes for Round 3: 834 (52.12 average)

Previous rounds:
Previous rounds:
Preliminary Round 1

Preliminary Round 2

Main Bracket - Round 1

Main Bracket - Round 2

Main Bracket - Round 3


The basics:

- I gather, starting from the game ranked 55 (Shogun) up, the games that didn't appear in the Geek Madness Tournament, and going so far as the game ranked 178 (Cuba) - they form the Minor League.

- The first 10 seeds don't start with an opponent. This is the function of the two preliminary rounds.

- How they are seeded? By rank. The first 10 don't have opponents right from the start. The seeds 11 to 54 face each other according to their seeds. The seeds 55 to 94 will face face each other according to their seeds, and 10 of them will become the opponents for the top 10 seeds (you can see this in the image bellow).

- As in the Geek Madness Tournament, games were united to form one entry - it is possible, probable even, that a few games that should form one entry, didn't. I'm sorry for this.


Rules (this bit is an almost word-by-word of the Geek Madness Rules):

For each match-up, vote for your favorite game by clicking on the thumbs-up icon. This round ends April 9th, without a definitive end hour (will end when I choose). A thumb for the GeekList is not required but encouraged and appreciated! Please help this stay on the front page to attract the attention of the most voters. Thanks!

You may vote for any games, whether you have owned or played them. You can vote based on any criteria that is important to you. You can cheer for your team, recruit legitimate voters, and rib the other team - just keep it modestly civil! Please feel free to comment on the games and match-ups, and most importantly, have fun!

IMPORTANT: This is meant as a fun competition. Please only vote with your main User account, i.e., ONE VOTE PER PERSON PER GAME PER ROUND (yes, you may vote for both games in a pairing if you really are undecided). Do not create "dummy" or shill accounts to vote multiple times as those votes will be voided if discovered.






**********************

So, I hope you all like a little more (madness?) competion between games!

16 Cosmic Encounter x 56 San Juan

Rd 1: d. Hive (112 x 78)
Rd 2: d. Egizia (113 x 61)
Rd 3: d. Battle Line (66 x 56)

Comment: The second year Cosmic Encounter gets through the Qter-finals. And last year it faced... San Juan! This don't bode well for the Race for the Galaxy cousin.

36 Notre Dame x 70 Survive: Escape from Atlantis!

Rd 1: d. Mage Wars (106 x 51)
Rd 2: d. Innovation (90 x 80)
Rd 3: d. Saint Petersburg (55 x 51)

Comment: Notre Dame is also a second timer in the Qter-finals. More than that - even though the game has a different seeding this year, it has held exactly the same position in the brackets it had in 2012. Last year Notre Dame lost to the game that would became the Champion.

36 Notre Dame x 70 Survive: Escape from Atlantis!

Preliminary Rd 1: d. Heroscape Master Set: Rise of the Valkyrie (83 x 30)
Preliminary Rd 2: d. Flash Point: Fire Rescue (74 x 47)
Rd 1: d. Blood Bowl Living Rulebook & Blood Bowl (3ed.) (121 x 40)
Rd 2: d. Cyclades (98 x 63)
Rd 3: d. Merchants & Marauders (66 x 40)

Comment: So Survive manage to survive against the marauders. This is the first appearance of it in the Qter-finals, since last year Survive lost early, in the Pre-Rd 2, to RoboRally. But now that its former nemesis didn't participate in the Minor League this year (it went to fight the big boys in the Geek Madness), Survive has a good chance to go to the Semi-finals.

86 Kingsburg x 39 Acquire

Preliminary Rd 1: d. Roads & Boats (76 x 43)
Preliminary Rd 2: d. Seasons (86 x 36)
Rd 1: d. Terra Mystica (94 x 51)
Rd 2: d. In the Year of the Dragon (119 x 56)
Rd 3: d. Tikal (68 x 41)

Comment: Ah, the King of the competition is, yet again, here. So far, Kingsburg remains undefeated in the Minor League, being, of course, last year Champion. Can it defend its title? Yes, I guess it sure can.

86 Kingsburg x 39 Acquire

Rd 1: d. Civilization (98 x 57)
Rd 2: d. Citadels (102 x 96)
Rd 3: d. Amun-Re (64 x 35)

Comment: Acquire, in his firt year in the competition, has already taken out one major competitor (Citadels) and now faces last year Champion. This will be a interesting match, since not long ago Acquire was battling against the majors.

46 Macao x 11 Village

Rd 1: d. A Few Acres of Snow (73 x 59)
Rd 2: d. Taj Mahal (82 x 56)
Rd 3: d. Ingenious (49 x 47)

Comment: Macao has gone more in the distance than I thought it would. Last year is lost to Wallenstein, in the 1st Round. But some soft pairings and a smaller than usual voters in the Rd 3, and Macao now faces the game with the best seeding still left in the competition: Village.

46 Macao x 11 Village

Rd 1: d. Maria (86 x 44)
Rd 2: d. Alien Frontiers (78 x 77)
Rd 3: d. Glen More (48 x 36)

Comment: The second freshmen in the 2013 competition to get this far (Acquire is the other), and the game with the best seeding still fighting. I will venture a guess and say we will see this game in the Semi-finals.
