This was suggested as an offshoot of the Top 100 Boardgames League, so I thought I'd give it a try and see how popular it is. This League is purely the BGG "Thematic" (aka Ameritrash) games. It begins with a de-duped version of the BGG Top Thematic games ranking.

In many parts of the world, sport leagues use the Relegation/Promotion method of advancement through tiers. Teams in each Level 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 level down.

What happens when we take this approach with board games?

Given less people know a lot of these games we will be taking the 'extreme' approach. You can only pick one game from each level. The Bottom 3 games will be Relegated to the next-lower level. The Top 3 teams on each level will be Promoted. The Bottom 4 games from Level 5 will be eliminated from the contest.

In order to stay informed about future rounds, subscribe to the BGG Top 100 Promotion/Relegation Battle 2012 - SUBSCRIPTION THREAD

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