This is an extension of the 2014 Geek Madness Tournament that turns it from a standard knock-out to a Double Elimination format. This side of the tournament sees the GM losers play off against each other.

Round A saw the best 64 games from the nominations round that failed to qualify face each other. Round B saw the round A winners match-up against the losers from Round 1 of Geek Madness.
Round C sees the DE Round B winners take on the GM Round 2 losers.


Round A: Best 64 non-qualifying nominees face off
Round B: Round A winners vs. Round 1 losers (64 games)
Round C: Round B winners vs. Round 2 losers (48 games)
Round D: Round C winners vs. Round 3 losers (24 games)
Round E: Round D winners vs. Round 4 losers (12 games)
Round F: Round E winners vs. Round 5 (semi-finals) losers (6 games)
Round G: Round F winners vs. Round 6 (finals) loser (3 games)
Round H: Round G winner vs. Geek Madness winner

I'll be 'rotating' the quadrants that the new losers enter into so that games should not meet a game that eliminated them too quickly.
Last year following this format meant that the Double Elimination bracket ended up having twice as many rounds as the tournament proper. This year I have a cunning plan to avoid that and you get to see it this round: 3-way ties from this point on.

Voting has ended for this round. The next round is here:

Round C sees the victorious teams from Double Elimination Round B go up against the Round 2 losers from Geek Madness proper. The games that didn't make the cut for Geek Madness proper (so went into DE Round A) are marked with a * so that we can track how far they make it through the contest.

In each match-up the geeklist item game is one of the winners from Round B. This will be the game that has earned this by having the most wins - if they have the same number of wins it is defined by the bracket structure. The others are another winner from Round B and a loser from GM Round 2. Huzzah! 3-way match ups!

In Round B there were 19 upsets out of 32 match-ups, where games that hadn't made it into Geek Madness proper triumphed over those that had. This reflects the 'Cannon Fodder' nature of a lot of the automatic Geek Madness entrants - not popular enough to win in GM Round 1, and not popular enough to win in Double Elimination either. To me this suggests needing less automatic qualifiers into Geek Madness.

Closest Matches in Round B:
336 Chess vs. Princes of Florence 316
308 Memoir '44 vs. Caverna 288

Most Votes in Round B: Carcassonne 473
Least Votes in Round B (winner): Imperial 246
