March Madness 2020 is live. Just a couple hundred votes so far. 

The Verbum site is here

I like this format, choosing individual resources and sets rather than authors. Go vote if you haven't.

There's a separate Mobile Ed bracket, too, which was a wise decision.

This year it will be easier for my wallet. I already owe about 70% of it. Most of votes are skipped because I owe them and other ones have choice between owed vs not owed

Agree. I'm only interested in the ZEC set because I have all but two volumes in the set as it's being offered. Shame it hasn't been updated to include the two latest volumes. 

It's good they try different formats though. My favourite was last year, but only because the rules changed and they made individual commentaries available.

I was so looking forward to March Madness...however, unless you happen to know all of the abbreviated titles, there is no clue to what you are voting on. I tried to hover my mouse over a title...NOTHING. So, I tried to do a search for the abbreviated title..."Title not found," The ones where I do know the title/abbreviations, I already have...guess I'm not going to vote/buy this year.

I like the format this week. Should be fun to see what happens.

Would anyone care to give any predictions?

if you click on the bracket to vote, you’ll see the titles in detail for you to choose from.

Agree David - and Bill, if you click on the right arrow on the matchup screen when you are done voting the first bracket, you will advance to the next, and on through all the 1st-round matchups. Grace and peace. <><

Bill, click on one of the pairs in the competition and it will open another window with the information you are seeking.

 Initially I wondered about this, too, but once I clicked on one pair of titles and my questions were answered.

Thank you all for the info. I wasn't going to click on anything before I knew what I was voting for.

Verbum works for me, but not Logos.

Out of curiosity, do the verbum discounts also apply to logos users in the store? Or, if you buy verbum products, will they appear in your logos library? I don't know how faithlife has those set-up, but some of the resources in the verbum bracket (i.e. summa theologica) look pretty great to have.

If you buy a 'Verbum store' book, it will appear in both your Verbum library (if you have one) and in your logos library. Separate store, but integrated license.

I'm not sure if the Verbum discount will show up in the Logos store. But you can buy it on the Verbum store and the logos library will be updated.

Awesome! Thanks for that. I'll be voting for some more books!

I chose not to vote this year--I probably won't buy either--because I'm not fond of clicking away my privacy.

Dale,

I am (and have been) signed in. I can vote in Verbum and Mobile Ed, just not Logos. I guess I'll be saving quite a bit of $$ this spring.

I'm rooting for the Zondervan Enclopedia of the Bible 5 volumes! Any other great deal is welcomed too.  I'm glad both EBC original and revised are included in the match ups for those who don't have either or.
