Retro Commentary
Another flawless romp to a championship for Puerto Rico. Things get significantly more difficult this season with a stellar freshman group coming in including Power Grid, War of the Ring, Goa and Ticket to Ride. The 2004 class is also the biggest class, taking up 18 of the 32 slots.

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
2001:___4_____2_____1
2002:___6_____4_____1
2003:___4_____2_____1
2004:__18_____8_____5
