Every year the 1 Player Guild runs a little award show in the form of a very classy geeklist. There is a game award, an expansion award, a designer award, and even a solo variant award. But there's also a BGG user award and this year... we have two nominees that looked very familiar to me.
All the links can be found here.
I pondered a lot about featuring this here or not. In the end, you know I don't like rankings, contests, and awards. My notion of success and happiness is that of the Tree of Life - something with many branches, all different and all the more beautiful because of that. Which is the reason why I'm usually more interested in the list of nominees than in the victor proper. It sounds cheesy, I know, but just to make that really clear: this is for fun, and I communicate this piece of info because I had fun finding it.
