Retro Commentary
Tigris reclaimed its crown but has now graduated out along with a couple other strong games leaving a power vacuum. It should be getting filled by Paths of Glory, the new #1 seed, but that game has been a bust in this type of poll against this type of competition. I have a feeling that most wargamers have little interest in voting in polls that are dominated by mostly mainstream fare.
New freshman include Hive, Dvonn and San Marco, but nothing I think that will get past Carc or Ra.

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__Rnd4__Rnd5
1998:___2_____2_____1_____0_____0
1999:__13_____6_____3_____2_____2

Tikal got the upset win over Carcassonne but now has to face-off against Ra which defeated it in the 1999 Final. Will history repeat or will Tikal get a championship?

This is for you David (dagibbs). It looks like Schotten-Totten isn't gonna qualify next season so there won't be a chance for these two to naturally face-off.
