2015 GEEK MINOR LEAGUE CHAMPION!

The road to the Championship:
Preliminary Rd 1: d. One Night Ultimate Werewolf (278 x 126)
Preliminary Rd 2: d. Ghost Stories (305 x 164)
Rd 1: d. Hansa Teutonica (269 x 154)
Rd 2: d. Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small (302 x 164)
Rd 3: d. Bohnnanza (365 x 301)
Qter-Finals: d. Five Tribes (332 x 307)
Semi-Finals: d. Small World & Small World Underground (167) (336 x 306)
Finals: d. Takenoko (341 x 259)

Comment: It took a while. San Juan was 8th (lost in the quarter-finals to Cosmic Encounter), on 2012, 3rd in 2013 (lost in the semi-finals to Notre Dame) and 2014 (lost in the semi-finals to Kingsburg), and now, for the first time in the Championship match, it won the whole thing. San Juan won battles against crowd favorites like Bohnanza and, specially, Small World, last year's champion - not a small feat, and shows that San Juan has staying power. So, who knows, maybe next year San Juan will join with its 2nd edition to have even a greater force. Which game will be able to stop it?

2015 GEEK MINOR LEAGUE 2nd Place!

From gallery of tiagoVIP


Preliminary Rd 1: d. Mansions of Madness (217 x 123)
Preliminary Rd 2: d. In the Year of the Dragon (233 x 199)
Rd 1: d. Runewars (253 x 144)
Rd 2: d. Imperial Settlers (224 x 208)
Rd 3: d. Arkham Horror (346 x 252)
Qter-Finals: d. Forbidden Desert (333 x 314)
Semi-Finals: d. RoboRally (304 x 303)
Finals: lost to San Juan (259 x 341)

Comment: This was the first year of Takenoko in the Minor League, and what a showing it did. Takenoko did got some light competion due to an easy bracket, but it showed strenght against Forbidden Desert and RoboRally (in a battle decided only in the final minutes). Around my gaming group it didn't have much space, however it does have a following and marked a space for itself on the Geek.

2015 GEEK MINOR LEAGUE 3rd Place!

From gallery of tiagoVIP


Rd 1: d. 1830: Railways & Robber Barons (274 x 122)
Rd 2: d. Catan (283 x 269)
Rd 3: d. Village (337 x 314)
Qter-Finals: d. Kingsburg (368 x 312)
Semi-Finals: lost to San Juan (306 x 336)
Finals: d. RoboRally (334 x 258)

Comment: I will be honest, after Small World clobbered Catan, Village and Kingsburg, I thought that it would win the Minor League again, particularly as San Juan was becoming an specialist in losing in the semi-finals. But no, I was wrong. And I'm fine with that, as I don't like very much "dynasties" in competitions - I do like seing champions falling (even more to a feisty game like San Juan). However, fans of Small World, don't worry too much, as it will probably remain, for years to come, an staple in the competition.

2015 GEEK MINOR LEAGUE 4th Place!

Preliminary Rd 1: d. Istanbul (204 x 167)
Preliminary Rd 2: d. Hive (272 x 195)
Rd 1: d. Lewis & Clark (250 x 208)
Rd 2: d. Seasons (265 x 217)
Rd 3: d. Shogun (329 x 277)
Qter-Finals: d. Memoir '44 (339 x 329)
Semi-Finals: lost to Takenoko (303 x 304)
Finals: lost to Small World (258 x 334)

Comment: Ah, the dreaded fourth place - two defeats in a row put a game here, but, still, is a honourable position to be. RoboRally, after it went to become 2nd place in 2012 (lost to Kingsburg in the championship match) stayed 2 years out of the competition, since its ranking didn't allowed its presence. This year, due to a change in the gathering of games for the Minor League, it came back with a bang. Next year, it will be surely back for more.

Vague Space

Every choice you make has an end result. --- Zig Ziglar

'Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'
'That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.
'I don't much care where -' said Alice.
'Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.
'- so long as I get SOMEWHERE,' Alice added as an explanation.
'Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, 'if you only walk long enough.'
--- Lewis Carroll

This was inserted to keep the Podium from the overall classification. Vague Space is glad to be working again. And it want to thank my friend and fellow geek
