The Ultimate Card Game Tournament: THE FINAL & DUELS
- 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 4 (The Top 10):
Round 5 (Semi Final, The Top 6):
No doubt you'll be familiar with the format of this list, but I don't think its ever been done for card games.
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 Wednesday, June 6th at 11:00 pm BGG time.
No Wild Cards this round.
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, "Wild Card" Lost Cities defeated the other "Wild Card" Poker 54-35. It also got more points than the winner of the second semi final (Bohnanza on 46), so Lost Cities goes into the Final.
Unseeded tournament star The Spoils bowed out gracefully, defeated by San Juan 64-28.
When the results of this list are finalised I will produce a Top 100 card games list, summarising the results of the whole competition!
I've also included a number of DUELS. These are battles between some very similar games - the kind of match-ups that I wish had come up in the tourament, but didn't. The results of these may affect the Top 100....
For the moment I will allow additions to the list, so if there is a card game DUEL that you'd like to see then add it!
