Howdy folks,

Something went wrong in our pairings last night. We dug back into it and it looks like there was a mistake in the tracking of the names for votes (not for the options displayed) so the numbers were correct but we had them attributed to the wrong pairs. Due to this mistake, the four options we put up to vote yesterday were incorrect. Below is Ethan’s article with the corrected pairing results and the corrected votes for this round of the bracket. Please cast your vote again!


You Make the Card 4 is in its final stretch! We've designed a card, and now we're working on its creative treatment. Two days ago we voted on the Top 8 names submitted by members of the audience. (Well, seven of them were submitted by the audience, one name was created by a member of the creative team.) Half the names remain.

Here are the results of the first vote.

Results - Sorted
Riches From Rags 15969 73.7%
Skullduggery 5699 26.3%
