This is the fifth round for the 2018 Geek Lifetime Achievement in Roleplaying. Voting will be open now through Friday, 14 December.

4 RPGs made it to the fifth round, the semifinals. They have been seeded by rank (or their highest ranking item within their family if they don't have one), with those RPGs making the quarter finals last year moving up two spots, the semi finals moving up four spots, and the runner-up moving up eight spots. With each of these games reaching the semifinals, they will have their seed increased next year, should they be nominated again.

The losers of the previous round will be matched up in this round and next round to determine ranking through 8th place.

Thumb the geeklist entry in the pair that you think should go forward; you don't have to thumb either, or you could thumb both! The RPG in each match up with the most thumbs votes will advance to the second round. I will not thumb any entries, but will break all ties.

After hilariously beating last year's winner Ars Magica, let's see how Drawing a Blank fairs against the 2016 winner, Fudge!
