Since 2006, http://www.boardgamegeek.com has been hosting the annual Golden Geek Awards. It is a highly coveted award in the boardgaming community, because it represents the voice of the people, not a panel of celebrity judges or industry big wigs. It’s the very same gamers who play the games in question that get to vote and have their say on what games were at the top of the heap each year.
The list of the nominees and the links to vote are here. And while I will say that it is really and truly a great honour just to be nominated, I’m hopeful that both Belfort and Train of Thought make a run for the title in their respective categories.
Belfort has been nominated in the following categories:
Artwork and Presentation
If you are a fan of either, or both game, and feel that it deserves a shot at the award, please vote. You can rank each game in each category, with 1 being the highest and 10 being the lowest ranking.
Thanks to our collaborators (Seth Jaffee, Josh Cappel, and Gavan Brown) and our publisher, Tasty Minstrel Games. And a huge thanks to everyone who got the games this far in the race; now it’s time to bring home the gold!
