Here we go into Round 10 of this. We'll keep running this for as long as it appeals to people and keeps my interest. This round we see how the best additional Wilds ** from last round do in the main contest.

Quote:
A Swiss-system tournament is a non-eliminating tournament format which features a set number of rounds of competition, but considerably fewer than in a round-robin tournament. In a Swiss tournament, each competitor (team or individual) does not play every other. Competitors meet in each round using a set of rules designed to ensure that each competitor plays opponents with a similar running score, but not the same opponent more than once. The winner is the competitor with the highest aggregate points earned in all rounds.
A Swiss system is used for competitions with a large number of entrants, so that a full round-robin is not feasible. Knockout, or elimination, pairings rapidly reduces the number of competitors, but may not necessarily result in the best possible competitor winning. Swiss systems intend to provide a clear winner with a limited number of rounds and a potentially unlimited number of opponents. A Swiss system draw should result in a clear winner, without having to play all opponents as in round robin, and without a single bad result terminating participation.

The first tournament of this type was a chess tournament in Zurich in 1895, hence the name "Swiss system". Swiss systems are commonly used in chess,

Here the Swiss system is used for multi-player brackets, so it isn't a pure application of the system, but it accelerates us towards a final result and lets us include many more games in the contest. Also bigger groups give more chance that more voters have played more than one game in each pod.

Groups of six games play. The winner will receive 5 points, 2nd 4, 3rd 3, etc. Then they will be grouped next round based on points.

Around 144 games are taking part. These were the BGG Top 100 plus 44 wild cards which entered based on their performance in other contests (Hit/Miss, Geek Madness Minors, Boardgames Association Cup, etc). They were seeded by the BGG rankings in terms of the construction of the first round. I generally did not merge similar games with a couple of exceptions, but voting in the first round led to us merging four of the entrants. Since then a couple of other batches of Wilds have entered and some games have been Eaten.

To make sure you don't miss a round subscribe here: 1000rpm's Polls Notification Thread - Just Subscribe!

Voting is over for this round, the next is here:

What Happened in the Last Round?

Round 9 (467 voters) saw a large fall in the contest's participation levels on Round 8 (652 voters). No idea why.

Last round saw Power Grid finally win the top pod, defeating Castles of Burgundy, which has been largely unstoppable in this tournament. But that wasn't enough for Power Grid to top the contest, as it still has just the third most points so far.

148 games took part, grouped based on their performance so far high to low. This includes the normal groups, the 6 additional Wilds and the elimination bracket.
Of the BGG Top 20, 9 of them feature in the Top 20 here (keeping stable).
The best performing Wild Cards (from outside the BGG Top 100) are Carcassonne, Ra and Galaxy Trucker.
Of the Wilds that joined last turn, The 7th Continent fared the best and moves into Pod 22, Shadows Over Camelot and Flamme Rouge move into pod 23. The rest stay in the Elimination bracket for now.

Top Ten Most Popular
These were the games that got the most votes in the last round:

133 Terra Mystica
132 Agricola
129 Power Grid
127 The Castles of Burgundy
118 Dominion (series)
118 Puerto Rico
117 Pandemic Legacy
111 Ticket to Ride (series)
109 7 Wonders
105 Race for the Galaxy

Remember that those of these in the lower pods were going up against easier opposition.

Least Popular

31 Survive: Escape from Atlantis!
36 Go
36 Commands & Colors: Ancients
39 No Thanks!
41 Dead of Winter
41 Goa
42 Robinson Crusoe
45 The Princes of Florence
46 Dungeon Lords
47 Sheriff of Nottingham

This excludes those in the Elimination bracket.

So here we go with Round 10. Games are grouped with others of similar scores, avoiding putting any in groups with the same games they were with last round.

This round the geeklist item is the last game in each poll.

Agricola now sits atop the pyramid after Power Grid stopped Castles of Burgundy getting maximum points last round. Can Agricola get revenge for CoB defeating it in round 8?

This is the first time into the top pod for Dominion and the first return for Race since round 5.

Ticket to Ride and Pandemic Legacy have both been in the top pod and look to climb back up there.
For Concordia this is the highest it has risen so far in the contest.

These are the games just above the trapdoor to the elimination bracket.

Flamme Rouge and Shadows Over Camelot join from the Elimination bracket as new wild cards last round. Go and C&C Ancients also join from the Elim pod.

Elimination Bracket

So here the games with the least points battle it out for survival.

Each round at least one of these will be eliminated from the contest and hurled into The Pit to be feasted on by the Great Gods of Gaming (they are hungry as they haven't been fed for some time!).

But there is hope! Each round, the most popular 1 or 2 of these will escape back into the main contest to be replaced in the Elimination bracket by the games with the least points.

With the new Wild Cards** I allowed a big change and Macao, The Lord of the Rings: Card Game, Alchemists, Chaos in the Old World and Cyclades all fell into this bracket. Five games were promoted into the main contest.

Voting is positive! Least votes will go...
