2018 Board Game Bracket Contest

It’s that time of year again – when we pit 64 games in a category of our choosing for your entertainment. This year, the theme is Components – and our regions are Cards, Cardboard, Wood and Plastic.

More importantly, you have an opportunity to join in the fun and fill out your own bracket. Like last year, we’ll be giving away a game to the player whose bracket closest matches our final bracket on Episode 161.

The rules?

Simple – just complete the bracket below or on Facebook and you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to win. Whoever’s bracket is closest to ours will win a game of their choice from the bracket (some conditions apply – see below).

To hear which games come out ahead, make sure to join us for Episode 160, in which we’ll go through the round of 64 and round of 32, and then Episode 161 in which we’ll run through the rest to the end.

Ready to Play?

Fill out your bracket now – it will lock down on March 11th at midnight, ahead of the launch of Episode 160. So don’t miss your chance to win big:

Contest Conditions

The winner may choose any game from the bracket that is currently in print and available on CoolStuffInc.com or Amazon.com (from Amazon or the manufacturer), up to an MSRP of $80.
