Well, I was thinking of one specific written one anyway…
If a segment of a podcast is dedicated to reviewing a particular game, then I think that’s fair enough.
No category for cooperative games?
I think the categories are simply based on the BGG “Subdomains” and there isn’t a separate one for coop games.
If it were me, I’d rather have coop games as a category than Children’s Games or Customizable games for which I have no nominees. Although, come to think of it, I do not have any new coop games in my list from the last two years but I suspect that’s just me.
Not even The Crew?
That’s not a game anymore, it’s a habit
If this doesn’t explode in a ball of fire because 2020, and if I do it again next year, I will probably modify the categories a bit. (If you’d suggested “coop games” back when we were talking about it in the discussion thread, they could have been a category this year.)
Fair enough. I was on a hiatus then. I’m still just surprised that it wasn’t brought up!
I only noticed the same thing when trying to think of nominations, co-op for next time sounds like a good idea. But we’re not lacking for categories!
Thanks for doing this you guys, I enjoyed this segment and hearing more about everyones boardgame preferences in the past, so thanks for making this happen again.
Also I may have missed it, but will the results be on SUSDs podcast again? Is there any involvement with them?
There was never a formal connection between the Awards and SU&SD - hence “Pearple’s Choice” rather than “SU&SD Awards”. On previous occasions, the results have been made public, and SU&SD have then chosen to talk about them. If they do that again, great!
Just edited the first post to make it clear that “best game review” doesn’t necessarily imply “by SU&SD”.
FYI this will be in the SU&SD news tomorrow (Monday)
Not sure how to send a private message here but registered to nominate
Ducks in Tow for “best artwork” and “best family game of 2019-2020” (it hasn’t been categorized yet, but it is a family game without doubt)
The ducks are just so cute, and the art is fantastic!
Welcome, @psyck0! As a new user you may not be able to send PMs until you’ve made a few posts. I’ve logged your nomination – and in a moment I’ll put it inside spoiler tags so that other people don’t see it unless they want to.
Welcome! And you’re right it looks quite lovely
Cast my votes. Mostly my votes came out of Tabletop trials, but hey, it’s been a tricky year…
Welcome to the boards.
