Here we go into Round 12 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 big three did when they were thrown together last round.

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.

* Asterisks denote wild card entries - i.e. games that entered the contest late.
The number of asterisks shows the wave they came in on.

1. Board Game: What Just Happened? [Average Rating:5.75 Unranked]

What Happened in the Last Round?

Round 12 (729 voters) saw the contest's participation levels grow massively compared to Round 11 (505 voters). Maybe the request for new Wilds is a big stimulation for voters?

A big surprise last round when the reigning King of Swiss (Castles of Burgandy) came 3rd in the top pod, defeated by Terraforming Mars and Puerto Rico.

This means we get another "big three" round with CoB, Power Grid and Agricola locked together on 55 points. Despite TM winning the top pod the long term points mean it drops to Pod 2.

146 games took part, grouped based on their performance so fath, high to low. This includes the normal groups 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 King of Tokyo.
Of the Wilds that joined in Round 9, The 7th Continent and Shadows Over Camelot are faring the best. Flamme Rouge and Bruges cling in the lower reaches main contest.

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

236 Agricola
211 Terraforming Mars
201 Power Grid
196 Puerto Rico
189 7 Wonders
182 Carcassonne (series)
176 Twilight Struggle
170 The Castles of Burgundy
169 Pandemic Legacy
166 Great Western Trail

Terraforming Mars increased its vote share, despite climbing to the top pod!
Remember that those of these in the lower pods were going up against easier opposition.

Least Popular

53 Imperial
54 Flamme Rouge**
57 Eldritch Horror
60 Arkham Horror: Card Game
68 Five Tribes
68 Goa
71 Tikal
71 Go
72 Caylus
72 Alhambra

This excludes those in the Elimination bracket.

So here we go with Round 13. 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.

Castles of Burgundy again faces off against Power Grid and Agricola, having beaten them both in round 11, but because it got its purple behind kicked in round 12, whilst they both won their pods, all of them are on level points.

Despite winning the top pod last round, Terraforming Mars drops down one because of how the Swiss system works - but I wouldn't bet against it being back in the top pod next round.
All the others have been in the top pod during this contest so are no pushovers.

Puerto Rico came 2nd in the top pod last round, but now slums it down here.
Concordia comes to this round with the Boardgames World Cup trophy shiny and new in its display cupboard.

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.

Nine new wild cards*** joined the contest!

Voting is positive! Least votes will go...
