Welcome to the game, based on an idea of Shaughnessy, and shamelessly using the work he already did. We used the list of 128 composers that players have produced for Shaughnessy's composers' game, and had nominations go on until each of these 128 composers had two works nominated. These 256 compositions will be run in 16 preliminaries, four semi-finals and one final. Selections and line-ups can be found here.

The rules:

1) you may vote once during your calendar day.
2) you have 10 points to distribute, but no composition may receive more than 4 points (deviating from the Bulldog games). Just copy/paste the latest board and add your votes.
3) there is no halfway elimination of compositions with low scores.
4) the round ends with the first composition to reach 80 points.
5) at the end of the round , the top four compositions will proceed to the next round (in case of a tie, I'll use a tiebreaker: the last time there was a difference).
6) do not post negative remarks on any of these compositions, feel free to discuss them positively, and at any time you may post YouTube links to their works.

If there is anything unclear, just ask.
