For a lot of us on BGG, the love of boardgames approaches that of a religion or cult. This contest develops that to determine which games would be the high priests of such a religion.

The starting order was based on the Boardgames League (Majors & Minors) with some changes based on the Boardgames World Cup and games that were moving up the Minor League being advanced over 'plodders'.

Within The Order the games fall into groups within the hierarchy. These groups will compete each round to improve their position. Games dominating their group will swap positions with the weakest games in the group above them, moving up a group. Each group has four levels so it is possible to move up (or down) the hierarchy very quickly.

How to Vote? For each group let your Doctrine guide you for the number of games to vote for. Those of Purity of Purpose may decide to select only one in each group. Those believers in a Deterministic Duality may select two. The Spreaders of Love my choose to select a Trinity. Those of a Chaotic Nature feel that they can choose as many of they want in each group.

126 games are in the Order. Below them are 20 cultists and below them 20 acolytes. Games can be nominated to join the acolytes with the most thumbed nominees being inducted. Each round the worst four Priests will be sacrificed to the Great Gods of Dice, Cards, Materials and Rules.



Last round:
[POLLS] The Order - VOTING COMPLETE

Next round:

The Herald - Order News

Last month the Order imposed mandatory Purity in voting as a direct counter to the level of Chaotic voting. This month that is relaxed and you may vote as you wish.

Purity had no effect on the Head of The Order which remains Power Grid.

Pandemic and Puerto Rico each retake Cardinal positions while Carcasssonne and Stone Age are demoted to Celestial.

King of Tokyo, The Resistance and Dixit are demoted to High Priests with Tigris & Euphrates, Eclipse and Keyflower taking their Celestial positions.

Cultists Russian Railroads, Biblios, Lewis & Clark and Nations gain their robes and become Priests.

The Ultimate Honor is granted to In the Year of the Dragon, Vikings, Roll Through the Ages and Nexus Ops as they are hurled into The Pit to feed to Gods of Gaming.

If you think a game should have a chance in the contest you can nominate it here by adding a comment (or a poll of multiple nominations!). The ones that get the most thumbs/votes will join the Acolytes. If there aren't enough popular nominations I will select games myself.
