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 three 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 3 teams will be Relegated to the next-lower level. The Top 3 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.
