ROUND 1: Top 100 Relegation/Promotion Battle (POLL CLOSED)
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?
I have taken the Top 100 games as of Monday 2011-04-25 and separated them into 10 tiers of 10 games each. For each tier, we will vote for the best game(s) within that tier. To determine the "Top Games" from each tier, I ask you to vote for the Best 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.
Obviously, this exercise will only be interesting over multiple rounds. Games will then have an opportunity to settle into a tier or maybe jump multiple tiers. At the conclusion of each round, a new round will begin using the newly established Tiers and the same rules will apply. After several rounds, we'll see where our favourite games end up.
Round 1 of the Top 100 BGG Relegation/Promotion Battle will end on Sunday, May 1 2011 at 8:00pm EST.
