Retro Commentary
Ra pulled out the upset last season to humble Tigris & Euphrates and get it's first championship. This season sees a large group of games enter the brackets from what is likely the beginning of a Euro Golden Age. Rookie games like Princes of Florence, Carcassone and Battleline look to make a mark and possibly challenge for a championship. And, of course, this season features even more Knizia!

Rules
Quote:
1. The seasons consist of games from a specific 4-year period based on the published date as ranked by BGG. Competing games are based on a particular version that falls within the 4 year time frame
2. Regardless of how a game does it will be graduated out once its window of eligibility passes. So no game will ever win more than 4 times.
3. I vote in every poll. In case of a tie when the poll closes, my vote becomes null to break the tie.


Bracket Composition
Year__Rnd1__Rnd2__Rnd3
1997:___4_____3_____1
1998:___2_____2_____1
1999:___13____5_____3

Knizia:___9_____6_____4
