Welcome fools for our fourth and final flurry of voting, and hopefully you'll enjoy ending.

But first, we must bid farewell to a fair few former contestants. The results are in.

The following remain.

El Grande
Tzolk'in

Stone Age
Russian Railroads
Pandemic
Nations
Carcassonne
Keyflower
Ora et Labora
King of Tokyo
Castles of Mad King Ludwig
Goa
Village
Five Tribes

Dungeon Petz

The following have been eliminated.

Imperial
Shogun
Kemet
Cosmic Encounter

Navegador
Lord of the Rings LCG
Glory to Rome
Die Macher
Claustrophobia
Suburbia
Jaipur
Imperial Settlers
Troyes
Princes of Florence
Chaos in the Old World
Here I Stand

El Grande put in another stirring performance to take top place. I can publish a full set of stats if requested. On a separate note, it appears that none of you like the concept of reincarnation. I hope you feel happy with yourselves. Every time someone says that Ganesha kills a fairy.

Now to determine the winner, the ultimate fool. In each of the preceding rounds, I've determined the scoring conditions and you have controlled how you vote. Not so any more. This fool cannot profess to know how to choose what is best so I leave you to collectively develop your own definition from the range of options I present.

Rules

1) Question 1 focusses on a range of different criteria, you need to determine which ones you think match each game. These votes do not have a fixed value, that will be determined in question 2.
2) Question 2 sets the values for question 1. These have been inspired by a number of popular games, which have entertainingly all been eliminated. I'll detail each category below.
3) I will close voting on the 22/04/2015

If you want to subscribe to the results of this poll, please look here. I'll hopefully return next year to do this and may run some other polls in future as this has proved a lot of fun. Thanks for all the support.

Chief

The total number of voters in the round is taken as a "maximum amount achievable".

For each scoring category, any games that achieve 75% or higher will score 4 points. If they score between 50%-75% it's 3 points etc. See the table below.

75%-100% 4
50%-75% 3
25%-50% 2
05%-25% 1
00%-05% -1

Therefore, the maximum amount a game can score is 28 and we will have a much tighter pack.

The categories will be ranked by the total number of votes for that category. Each vote in the category that receives the most votes, will be worth 6 points. Each vote in the category that scores the least votes will be worth 0 points.

1st = 6
2nd = 5
3rd = 4
4th = 3
5th = 2
6th = 1
7th = 0

If a game individually has the most votes in 3 of the categories, it will win the vote on it's own.

If this is not possible, but a pair of games can jointly win 54 categories, they win and share the victory.

If this is not possible, and a trio of games can win all 75 categories, they win and share the victory.

Otherwise, El Grande wins because it has the highest Karma.

Edit: I've realised that the maths on this doesn't actually work. I've reverted to real dune scoring, not a version that was flexed to the number of categories I had blush

Add all the points together. It doesn't matter where they come from.

We aren't really interested in winning, we just want survival. Set all the games on fire and see which is still playable afterwards. All that succeed share the win. (Note, I will only metaphorically set these games on fire).

If anybody has any other games they'd like to be used as a basis for scoring in future years, please feel free to add them to the list. Please ensure you describe how they are scored.
