    Default Game (prelim 15/15): String quartets 1920+

    Welcome to the String quartets 1920+ game. We have chosen 180 string quartets that were composed from 1920-2020. These will now be pitted against each other in fifteen preliminaries, three semi-finals and one final.

    Voting Rules:

    1. You may vote once daily (your calendar day).

    2. To vote, please:
    - copy/paste the previous post
    - remove the (+x) by the previous poster
    - add your votes and include your own (+x) after them
    - after posting, please check whether someone else has posted just before you
    - if so, adjust your post accordingly
    - please do not bold the compositions you vote for, please do not use different colours
    - if you want, you can bold the composition reaching the finish line (60)
    - please do not delete the reminder statement about halfway the compositions list

    3. When you vote, you will have 10 upward points to use as you wish except that no work may receive more than 3 points.

    4. The Half-Time Adjustment is not in effect.

    5. The round ends with the first composition to collect 60 points.

    At the end of the round, the top three compositions will move to the semi-finals. If necessary, I will apply a tiebreaker (the last time there was a difference between compositions ending on equal points). The winners of the preliminary rounds will be evenly distributed over the three semi-finals.

    The full list of the 15 preliminary rounds can be found here.

    At any time, feel free to say something about the compositions, link to video's, etc.

    I seem to have gotten confused with the voting. Sorry. Some polls have a max of 6 votes others a max of 3. I must have still been half asleep.
