Welcome to the Quarterfinals of the Derk Cup!

The polls are now closed. Jump to the Semifinals here.
Subscribe here to be alerted when each round begins.


Only eight designers remain. Who will continue on to the semis?

Quarterfinals end on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 12:00 am (BGG time).

The Derk Cup is awarded each year to BGG's favorite designer. In celebration of the minds behind the games, 64 designers (or design teams) will once again face off in a head to head, bracketed, single elimination tournament.

How the Tournament Works:
Designers were seeded using my top secret ranking method with stats collected on January 23, 2014.
There is a poll for each pairing. Vote for your favorite designer; you may vote for both designers if you cannot decide. The poll will last for around four days.
The designer with the most votes when the poll closes will move on to fight another day. The last designer standing will be the recipient of the illustrious 2014 Derk Cup.
