Voting is open only to GCL members and regular contributors to a GCL (others will be disregarded). If you are not on a GCL roster, please add a comment letting me know which GCL(s) you contribute to so that your vote is not ignored.

In each matchup, vote for as many games as you like - how you determine your favorite(s) is up to you. You are of course free to abstain if you feel you are not able to make a sufficiently informed decision; however, you are not required to have played any of the games to vote.

In some cases similar games were combined, and entries with multiple editions are meant to include all/your-choice-of-all editions. Expansions are also included (if you prefer).

Vote with your thumbs! Each round will last about four days. If you haven't already, make sure you subscribe to GCL Madness Subscription Thread so you don't miss a round...

Condorcet Ranking, Part 3

Below is a list of 54 games - the 40 games which had not participated in parts 1 and 2, along with the 14 best games from part 2.

Order these games as completely as you are willing to. An initial step might be to give each game you've played a rating from 1 to 10, and group games with the same rating into tiers. You can then order any of the tiers if you like (but note which are ordered/unordered).

For the games you haven't played or aren't familiar enough with to rate, you can either rank them separately based on how much you want to play them or think you will like them, or you can include them where you think they would end up.

Please note the boundary between played games you like well enough to willingly play and games you dislike/avoid. (This will be used for comparing to unplayed games, if you have rated them separately.)

(The id in front is for compiling results; please leave this in front of the name of the game on your list. See my list for an example.)

G004 1989: Dawn of Freedom
