"The Great Composers - The All-Eras All-Star Extravaganza" - Quarter-Finals - Game 8 of 9
The decision to use the word "Great" rather than "Greatest" was intentional - We are endeavoring to express the perception of "greatness" within this multiplicity of composers rather than as a means of identifying and labeling an individual - The intended concept is an attempt to represent and judge those composers who have elevated craftmanship into true artistry.
The Format -
9 Quarter-Final games of 20 composers with the 6 receiving the highest point totals from each moving on to one of three Semi-Final games of 18 with 6 from each moving on to the Final.
The Rules -
1.) You may vote once per calendar day.
2.) You have a total of 20 points to distribute per entry with a maximum of 5 per individual composer.
3.) Play will end with the first composer to reach 200 points.
4.) The composers with the next 5 highest point totals will advance to the Semi-Final round.
5.) In the event of a tie, each of the composers with identical scores will advance to the next round.
