Four weeks of voting have left us with the two best games from a field of 64. Though the lead changed many times, the final pair steps forward to a bloody rematch. Once again we see the 3-time winner Power Grid face the game that de-throned it last year: Twilight Struggle. Will TS continue its own journey to a three-peat record or will PG regain its dominance of the Geek Madness?

Rules:
For each match-up, vote for your favorite game by clicking on the thumbs-up icon. Please thumb this list to keep it on the front page!
This round ends MONDAY, April 5th, at 8:00pm BGG time (central). Note the shorter length of this round!

You may vote for either game, whether you have owned or played it. You can vote based on any criteria that is important to you. You can cheer for your team, recruit legitmate voters, and rib the other team - just keep it modestly civil! Please feel free to comment on the games and match-ups, and most importantly, have fun!

IMPORTANT: This is meant as a fun competition. Please only vote with your main User account, i.e., ONE VOTE PER PERSON PER GAME PER ROUND (yes, you may vote for both games in a pairing if you really are undecided). Do not create "dummy" or shill accounts to vote multiple times as those votes will be voided if discovered.


Voting Is Closed for This Round
