This is an attempt by me to run a series of seasons starting with 1993 and continuing to present. The seasons consist of ranked game versions from a specific 4-year period based on that versions 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 1993-1996 season.
Bracket Composition

Year__Rnd1
1993:___2
1994:___10
1995:___14
1996:___6

Games that graduated out: Modern Art (BGB), Loopin' Louie, Confusion: Espionage and Deception in the Cold War, Breakout: Normandy, 1870

Games that competed last season but weren't ranked high enough to compete this season: Beyond Balderdash (1993)

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.

Past Season Winners
1993: Magic: The Gathering (1993)
1994: Modern Art (1992)
1995: El Grande (1995)

I will close the polls for Rnd 1 sometime on Nov. 13th.
