In many parts of the world, sport leagues (particularly football/soccer leagues) use the Relegation/Promotion method of advancement through tiers. Teams in each Tier battle to finish at the top of the standings and are awarded for doing so by receiving a Promotion to the next-higher level. Similarly, the worst-ranked teams are Relegated to the next tier down.

What would happen if we were to take this approach with board games?

20 Rounds have been completed
ROUND 20: Top 100 Relegation/Promotion Battle (POLL CLOSED)

ROUND 2: Top 100 Relegation/Promotion Battle (POLL CLOSED)
ROUND 1: Top 100 Relegation/Promotion Battle (POLL CLOSED)

To determine the "Top Games" from each tier, I ask you to vote for UP TO 5 games in each tier. The game with the most votes will be the Tier Champion. At the the end of the specified period, the Bottom 3 teams on each tier will be Relegated to the next-lower level. The Top 3 teams on each tier will be Promoted to the next-higher level.

Round 21 of the Top 100 BGG Relegation/Promotion Battle will end on Friday November 11 2011.

Remember to give this list a thumb thumbsup in order to maximize its visibility and get as many voters as possible.

Any game that captures the Tier 1 Championship 3 times is inducted into the Hall Of Fame. These games are retired from the Top 100 Relegation/Promotion Battle and given a place in this Hall Of Fame.
