Retro Commentary
In a fairly easy victory season, freshman Puerto Rico gets it's first gold medal by beating Carcassonne convincingly. The new crop from 2003 is less than stellar so PR stands a very good chance of a repeat win.

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
2000:__11_____6_____4_____2
2001:___5_____1_____1_____0
2002:___7_____6_____2_____2
2003:___9_____3_____1_____0

Games that Graduated Out (medals,record,avg finish):
Ra (GSB, 14-3, 3rd)
