In many parts of the world, sport leagues use the Relegation/Promotion method of advancement through tiers. Teams in each Tier battle to finish at the top of the standings. Those teams 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 happens when we take this approach with board games?

I have taken the Top 100 games as of Friday 2012-04-27 and separated them into 5 tiers of 20 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 10 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 4 of the BGG Top 100 Promotion/Relegation Battle 2012 will end on Friday, May 25 2012.
