Welcome back!

For the semifinals and finals, map and counter votes will be run in the same thread.

As always, pairings were randomly assigned! This is especially important here in the semis, because when you see what we ended up with I'm sure some people will think a fix is in!

From the Final 8, the following countersets were unceremoniously sent home:

Wow - 3 very tight races and one runaway leader (I'm voter 28 or 29 depending on the poll, so who knows if the early returns mean anything)

Re: Shad's Wargame Map & Counter Throwdown - SEMIFINALS - 7 days to vote!
If there are any awards given out for this, it's easy to say who now:

One Mystery Game is counterset C3 ~ AND ~ map B2. Several games were originally nominated in both categories - but the fact that this one made it to the Final 4 in BOTH is pretty damn impressive.

It may not be crowned the best in either, but it's certainly been voted as best overall!

To look over sumptuous counters and glorious maps is always a pleasure at any time but to incorporate them into a competition makes this a sweet one. Well done Shad.

I also like the way that it appears that people have not just voted for their favourite game or period but the various maps and counters are there purely through their own merits.

What's up next....box art?

This has been a fun contest. When it's over, could you make a list of all the contestants for both map & counters?

Box art could be a lot of fun too ... devil

I am SHOCKED Cassino didn't make it to the semis. Love that map. May not love the game system but that map is hot! The maps and counters left are all deserving anyways though.

I'm willing to run it, BUT...

I start a new job in a new field on 8/3, so I'll need some time to settle in before I can free up enough time to do all the photo-prep work making these lovely little polls requires.

Start nominations in September?

We could go really nuts...

- 128 entries
- all single-elimination
- anyone willing predicts the entire history of the tournament and pays a 5(?)GG entry fee
- at the end of the tournament, whoever's bracket was the most accurate gets the loot

That'd be some exciting shit!

F2 and C2.. really? I guess I could get used to the cartoon style, but I think it would take a while.

I don't like em either, but the road from a 38 entry group stage to the Final 4 is littered with the corpses of their opponents...

Don't have much geekgold left but here's some for some encouragement.

Good job!

It's only a mystery game if you don't own it.
