Retro Commentary
Tikal pulled out the upset win over Ra in a tightly contested 2001 Championship by just 2 votes. This season sees a strong freshman group that includes Puerto Rico, Age of Steam and Hammer of the Scots.

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
1999:__11_____4_____3
2000:__10_____5_____3
2001:___5_____1_____0
2002:___6_____6_____2

Games that Graduated Out (medals,record,avg finish):
Samurai (none,9-4,5th)
Through the Desert (none,6-4,9th)
For the People (none,2-2,16th)
Elfenland (none,1-2,20th)
Mystery Rummy: Jack the Ripper(none,0-2,30th)

Games that competed last season but weren't ranked high enough to compete this season:
Schotten-Totten (1999)
Battle Cry (2000)
The Werewolves of Miller's Hollow (2001)
Ricochet Robots (1999)
