Welcome to the Thunderdome...on Facebook

The first round of our Geek Tournament nears completion.  As the contestants fight to the death, some of the voting is very close.  While close games were anticipated, I realize that I never bothered to share with you the process by which we will determine the winner in the event of a tie.  It is an overtime period of sorts.

The first round of voting officially ends Sunday night, March 11th at 11:59 CST.  Should the score of any given match be close enough to warrant concern over a tie, that particular match-up will be featured on the Transformer Generation Dad Facebook page on Sunday.  Comments left below that post will be considered overtime points for that contestant.  Then, if the final voting does in fact end up in a tie, those comments will be tallied and the one with the most Facebook comments proclaimed the victor.  This process will be the same for potential ties in every round.

Yes, the overtime voting will occur simultaneously with the final hours of regulation voting.  I understand this is strange, but necessary to keep the tournament on schedule.  So, if you see one of your favorites in a dead heat, get over to our Facebook page on the Sunday voting is to end and watch for a post allowing you to help push it through.

Thanks for your time.  Game on!
