QF2 is up 2 vote on & its Lion Rampant vs To the Strongest and if previous voting patterns continue this should be very close.
Voting link below
In QF1 there have been 500 votes on the 1st day and O Group is just ahead of For King and Parliament

Well Cavcmdr what a joy you are !

Not sure how a link to a Facebook poll leads to you telling me to F off ?

If you could be bothered to look into this you would see I have explained extensively why I have chosen to have one central location for voting, with nearly 10,000 votes cast there was no other way to run it and although not everyone has access to FB more people do than any other format.

Have you tried Camomile Tea, it's very calming lol

I dont use facebook , but that is my choice and would not presume to attack anyone who does. Like your stuff Yarkshire and though I wont be voting I wish you the best.

Cheers mildbill,

Your words are most welcome

I would love to have found a method to do this with voting in multiple locations, I knew some people don't use FB and I apologised for that at the very start.

Sadly I have a day job I need to do that and try and keep up with the the voting, I never expected it to reach 10,000 votes !

If I do this again in a couple of years time I will try and find a way of making the voting more widely available whilst keeping the admin lower. I'm open to suggestions of how to, just not abuse.

Sorry Yarkshire.

It is F book I want to go away. Not you.
I wanted to vote for Simon's rules.

Mostly I enjoy your site and posts.
I believe I have complimented you on quite a few occasions over the years.

Have fun.

No worries Cavcmdr, as with many things on the Internet it came across very differently.

I do wish I could find a way of running this so more people could vote, its something I'm looking at if I do this in the future again.

With 1,000 votes already cast in QF1 & 2 this could really take off. Sharp Practice vs Battlegroup. It's #Napoleonic vs #WW2 the 2 most popular periods.

We need a winner and we've got just 3 days to do it, it's time to choose your team. Link 👇

The last QF is underway today and its another corker. General de Armee takes on Chain of Command.

General de Armee is a big battle Napoleonic game from the pen of Dave Brown. It saw off The Men Who would be Kings in the first round and then Fire and Fury in an epic 2nd Round clash. Could Dave get two sets in the semi finals.

Chain of Command is a WW2 Skirmish Game which is one of the most popular for that genre. It's the last remaining "seeded" rule set in the competition having defeated Mortem et Gloriam in Round 2. It has a big following so lets see if they turn out.

In QF two To the Strongest is ahead of Lion Rampant by 5 votes with 460 cast. Whilst QF 3 I turning into the heavyweight match up we were hoping for. Battlegroup is just 4 votes ahead of Sharp Practice with nearly 900 votes cast. Both are way to close to call.

O Group has qualified for the semi finals this morning, but the other two quarters are remarkably close.

So one last time for this round, get voting !

The results are in and The Semi Final line up is complete, nearly 12,000 votes have been cast to date and the Semi Finals are

O Group vs Chain of Command

To the Strongest vs Sharp Practice

Voting will start on Thursday, so there will be a none WW2 set in the final.
