7 Wonders needed extra time and penalties to eventually defeat Ticket to Ride. That doesn't bode well for facing Power Grid, which brushed aside Dominion 3-1.

Long time rivals for the BGG #1 spot, now fading somewhat in those ratings. Agricola should be favourite here, but PR seems to be aging very gracefully, while the Gric's star seems to have paled more rapidly of late.

Double Elimination?!

Not normally a feature of World Cups, but so what?!
Continuing the bonus voting, the winners of last round's Double Elimination each face one of the Quarter Final losers! A win here takes them into the Double Elimination Semi-Finals!
