This is the third 'season' of the Top 100 Boardgames League, previously known as the "BGG Top 100 Promotion/Relegation Battle".

In many parts of the world, sport leagues use the Relegation/Promotion method of advancement through tiers. Teams in each Tier battle to finish at the top of the standings. Those teams are awarded for doing so by receiving a Promotion to the next-higher level. Similarly, the worst-ranked teams are Relegated to the next tier down.

What happens when we take this approach with board games?

This will be run on a roughly monthly basis. The Major Leagues contest will be run in tandem to determine the games demoted into the Minors. The top four* games from the Minors will be promoted into the Majors.

Vote for a maximum of 3 teams from each tier in priority order. Select what you think are the Best games, whatever your personal criteria for that are. The Bottom 4* teams will be Relegated to the next-lower level. The Top 4* teams on each tier will be Promoted. Number of 1st place votes will be used as a tie-breaker, and 2nd too, if required. The Bottom 4 teams from League 5 will be eliminated from the contest.

* From next month I will change all these numbers to three.

Voting for this round is over. The next round is here:
