The Ultimate Card Game Tournament: Semi Finals (The Top 6)
- Tony Ackroyd(1000rpm)United Kingdom
I've loved card games for as far back as I can remember. I used to play simple games with my sister, then I played a lot of cribbage with my mum (usually in the garden in the summer - a glorious memory), then lots of games (usually 'take that!' games like Oh Hell) with kids at school, moving on to more strategic games in college like Contract Whist (aka Nomination) and Great Dalmuti (aka Presidents and Arseholes). However it was only when I discovered Boardgamegeek that my eyes were opened to some amazing games like Coloretto, 6 Nimmt! and No Thanks.Recommend
Round 1 (106 Entrants):
Round 2 (The Top 40):
Round 3 (The Top 20):
Round 4 (The Top 10):
No doubt you'll be familiar with the format of this list, but I don't think its ever been done for card games. Hopefully this round will determine the 2 best card games ever - and we'll move on from there.
1. Vote once for the better card game in each match-up
2. Vote by clicking on the Thumb for the game you want to win each match-up
3. Add a comment if you want, but note that comments will NOT count as votes
This round ends Tuesday, May 29th at 11:00 pm BGG time.
If you've been following these lists you'll see a pattern - I love the concept of Wild Cards! So when I came to set up the games for this round I couldn't help but throw in the top 2 'losers' from Round 4 as Wild Cards. This also gives us a bit more of an interesting contest than just having 4 games in it.
This Round the Wild Cards will play against each other and any winning Wild Card that scores more votes than a winning game in the main competition will knock that game out and replace it in the Final! This should ensure the best 2 games get through.
The games were seeded according to their results from Round 1. The Top 20 seeds (those that remain) have their seedings noted on this list.
In the last round, no Wild Card scored enough votes to displace one of the main competition entries. The two Wild Cards this turn are the highest scoring losers on the last list: Lost Cities (which was beaten by the only unseeded game still in the competition, The Spoils, which triumphed again using this list as an unofficial marketing campaign) and Poker, which only just beat Battle Line. Both got 41 votes in Round 3. Magic bows out as the 7th best card game with 40 votes. Battle Line drops out as the 8th best with 39 votes.
Apologies for the lateness of this list - being a new parent of 2 children is somewhat time consuming!
This list is now closed, THE FINAL is now open for voting:
