So here we are at the First Round Proper. To get here we've had three geeklists which have simulated 11 knock-out rounds of competition, where 927 boardgames have competed. 24 of those games have made it to this round, where they are joined by 56 games from ranks 45-100.

This contest is the BA (Boardgames Association) Cup, based on the structure of the FA (Football Association) cup - the oldest football competition in the world, first held in 1871-72. It takes a knock-out format with no seeding. Clubs of all standards compete (meeting certain minimum criteria), so has the potential excitement for "giant killing", when small football clubs go up against the biggest. There are many rounds in the competition, with multiple stages: preliminary, qualifying and 'proper', with clubs joining at different stages based on their current position in the FA leagues, with the biggest clubs finally joining in the 3rd round proper, the most exciting of rounds.

This contest simulates the FA cup for Boardgames. To prevent it dragging on endlessly and the keep the workload to a reasonable level I will short-cut the tournament somewhat. For instance this round simulates two "real world" rounds of knock-out with each bracket of 4 representing a 4 -> 2 -> 1 process. In the latest FA cups nearly 800 clubs took part. This contest features 1027 boardgames: the BGG Top 1000, minus some duplicates, plus some wild cards.

The contest will be something like this:

Extra & Preliminary rounds (X): 400 games take part - games from BGG ranks 628-1000 and 57 Wild Cards (W).
Qualifying 1 (Q1): 25 games qualify from X, 359 new games enter from ranks 269-627
Qualifying 2 (Q2): 24 games qualify from Q1, 168 new games enter from ranks 101-268
Round 1 & 2 Proper (P1): 24 games qualify from Q2, 56 new games enter from ranks 45-100
3rd Round Proper (P3): 24 games qualify from P1, BGG Top 44 enter
5th Round 16 games qualify from Round 3 & 4
6th Round 8 games qualify from Round 5
Semi-Final 4 games qualify from Round 6
Final 2 games qualify from the Semi-Final

I might combine Round 5 & 6 depending on the interest level at that stage.
Games have their entry point appended to their name for tracking purposes.

What happened in Qualifying Part II?

24 games qualified from the Preliminary Rounds & Qualifying Part I, 168 games entered from rank 105-280, minus some duplicates. They were randomly allocated to the brackets. Only 24 could qualify for this round. The qualifiers (one winner from each bracket of 8 games) were (by number of votes):

126 The Settlers of Catan (1995) (Q2)
113 Bohnanza (1997) (Q2)
93 Chess (1475) (Q1)
91 Alhambra (2003) (Q1)
90 Saint Petersburg (2004) (Q2)
90 Acquire (1964) (Q2)
88 Kingsburg (2007) (Q2)
87 For Sale (1997) (Q2)
86 Citadels (2000) (Q2)
85 San Juan (2004) (Q2)
82 RoboRally (1994) (Q2)
82 Glen More (2010) (Q2)
77 Thurn and Taxis (2006) (Q2)
76 Seasons (2012) (Q2)
75 Bruges (2013) (Q2)
74 The Pillars of the Earth (2006) (Q2)
71 Castles of Mad King Ludwig (2014) (Q2)
71 Formula D (2008) (Q1)
71 Hive (2001) (Q2)
70 Five Tribes (2014) (Q2)
64 Hey, That's My Fish! (2003) (Q1)
64 Forbidden Desert (2013) (Q2)
63 Istanbul (2014) (Q2)
60 Eminent Domain (2011) (Q1)

So three Qualifying stage I games pushed on through Qualifying stage II: Chess, Alhambra, Formula D, Hey Thats My Fish and Eminent Domain.

The following were closest to qualifying for this round:

71 Hanabi (2010) (Q2)
71 Kingdom Builder (2011) (Q1)
66 Magic: The Gathering (1993) (Q2)
65 Tales of the Arabian Nights (1985/2009) (Q2)
65 Ghost Stories (2008) (Q2)
65 Escape: The Curse of the Temple (2012) (Q2)
63 PitchCar (1995) (Q2)
61 Civilization (1980) (Q2)
61 At the Gates of Loyang (2009) (Q2)
61 Fresco (2010) (Q2)
60 Survive: Escape from Atlantis! (1982) (Q2)
59 In the Year of the Dragon (2007) (Q2)
59 Flash Point: Fire Rescue (2011) (Q2)
59 Forbidden Island (2010) (Q1)
58 Can't Stop (1980) (Q1)
58 Amun-Re (2003) (Q2)
58 Coloretto (2003) (Q1)
58 Notre Dame (2007) (Q2)

Preliminaries Games (W)
Three games from the preliminaries made it through to Qualifying Round II: Scotland Yard, Cards Against Humanity and TransAmerica.
None of them made it through to this round.

Home Advantage?
Analysis of the games at 'home' (the geeklist entry) - they got an average of 51 votes compared to 41 votes for other games. Seemingly a decent advantage! But probably distorted though by four big "home" winners: Bohnanza with 113 votes, St Petersburg with 90, Hive with 71 and For Sale with 87.
