Welcome to the "String Quartets 1972-2021" game. We nominated 160 works, which will be voted on in ten preliminary rounds, followed by three 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 qualify for the semi-finals (in case of a tie, I'll use a tiebreaker: the last time there was a difference). In addition, the eight best #5's will qualify.
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.
