- Tony Ackroyd(1000rpm)United Kingdom
Continuing the 15th Annual Geek Madness Tournament!
32 games took part in Round 4. Here the winners progress the the Elite Eight!
Every Spring, we pit the top games against each other to crown one game the Geek-Certified Aldie Award winner. This is a single-elimination tournament where the game with the most votes advances to the next round. This year we will follow the same structure as last year, with 116 games in the main contest including 4 Super-seeds.
You may vote for any games, whether you have owned or played them. You can vote based on any criteria that is important to you. You can cheer for your team, recruit legitimate voters, and rib the other team - just keep it moderately civil! Please feel free to comment on the games and match-ups, and most importantly, have fun!
Voting for this round will end probably around midnight Sunday 15th April.
IMPORTANT: This is meant as a fun competition. Please only vote with your main User account, i.e., ONE VOTE PER PERSON PER MATCH-UP PER ROUND. Do not create "dummy" or shill accounts to vote multiple times as those votes will be voided if discovered.

Interesting Round 4 Tid-Bits:
At least 1,880 voters (1,486 Round 3)
14123 Total Votes (7,479 last year)
883 average votes per game (467 last year) compared to 677 Round 3.
Zero of 8 Upsets by Lower-seeded Teams (4 last year)
No upsets in seed terms, but it was a big surprise to see previous winner 7 Wonders lose so badly to Terraforming Mars and Terra Mystica go out to Pandemic Legacy.
And now we are left with seeds 1-9 (minus 8) in the last eight. Not sure that has ever happened before in Geek Madness!
