    Default The Baroque Opera Extravaganza (Championship Round)

    Welcome to the Championship Round of our Baroque opera game. After many qualifying rounds and the semi-finals, we are down to 20 surviving operas. When all voting has been completed, I will announce the top ten Baroque operas.

    Rules of Engagement:

    1. You may vote once daily - voting sessions must be at least 6 hours apart.

    2. When you vote, you will have 20 points to use as you wish except that no opera may receive more than 5 points.

    3. The game ends with the first opera to reach 100 points.

    4. The Half-Time Adjustment is in effect. With the first opera to garner 50 points, the 7 having the lowest scores will be eliminated from the game; this number could rise if there are ties toward the bottom of the board.

    The game has encountered a small level of participation from its inception. The latest setback is that I'll be gone for a few days starting June 15. This leads to the following rule change:

    The game ends with the first opera to reach 50 points.
