This is an attempt by me to run a series of seasons starting with 1993 and continuing to present. The seasons consist of ranked games from a specific 4-year period based on published date. Regardless of how a game does it will be graduated out once it's window of eligibility passes. So no game will ever win more than 4 times.


Interesting Facts to start off the 1991-1994 season.
Bracket Composition

Year__Rnd1__Rnd2__Rnd3__Rnd4
1991:___9_____6_____4_____2
1992:___5_____2_____1_____1
1993:___8_____2_____1_____1
1994:___10____6_____2_____0

Games that graduated out: The Republic of Rome, Hoity Toity, Space Crusade,Daytona 500, 1835, Eurorails, Gang of Four, De Bellis Antiquitatis

Games that competed last season but weren't ranked high enough to compete this season: Quo Vadis? (1992), SPQR (1992)

The plan is to keep the lists rolling until I get current, then ease it back to a once a year list to judge the current Cult of the New.

I plan to keep a Hall of Fame for Season Champs.

Some of these early rounds have some, um, interesting games, many I've never played, so feel free to comment and enlighten us as to their merits (or lack thereof).

I will close the polls for Rnd 1 sometime on Oct 5th.
I will close the polls for Rnd 2 sometime on Oct 10th.
I will close the polls for Rnd 3 sometime on Oct 17th.
I will close the polls for Rnd 4 sometime on Oct 20th.

thumbsupThanks for playing and please thumb to keep this list as visible as possible!thumbsup

*** Note: Last season I did a geeklist for each round. This seemed kinda spammy to me, so I'm gonna try an keep all of this round's voting inside one geeklist. Each round would then be an individual geeklist item. Not sure how that's gonna pan out though. (Not enough votes for the sample doing this...)

Cosmic Encounter once again comes from deep in the field to reach the Semi-Finals. Last season they were knocked out by Tichu. How will it fair against Modern Art in this, its last season of eligibility?

M:TG won it all last season and History of the World is just one more stepping stone to its second Championship. This is the last year for History of the World.
