The Pearple's Choice Awards 2019-2020

I imagine people have read this already, but quite the bigging up from Ava

Hope we see more people this way and that they stick around. Although the link from the news is slightly broken.


Hows it broken? I’ll ask to get it tweaked.

It’s working now! It was saying that the link was broken or private, but with a list of threads.

It comes straight here now


Link is still broken (maybe just in the cache hit that I am browsing?). It has the /t/<slug>/ but it’s missing the actual important bit which is the thread ID /t/<slug>/<threadid>, in this case /t/you-can-put-anything-here-as-long-as-the-next-part-says/1833

They’ve trimmed the /1833

Hi I am new, and can’t DM RogerBW :frowning:


Welcome to the community, hemi. If you click on his avatar it should be straight forward by clicking on the message icon. If not I will tag him @RogerBW so he can contact you.

Welcome to the forums, @hemi! I have changed your membership level and you should now be able to direct message RogerBW your nominations.


Hi, welcome. Hang around


thank you!


To make the nomination process a little easier on both Roger who is writing code to make sure the nominations are counted correctly and on us, I have created a Google Sheet that you can use to fill out your nominations.

I want to note that you do not have to use this!
It is just an offer to help you format your nominations in a way that are easy for Roger to process.

To use it, you need to copy the sheet into your own account, where you should be able to edit at will.
It includes a list of 2019-2020 published games and expansions (extracted from BGG, search criteria being published in 2019-2020 and having 100 ratings so some games that aren’t quite published yet are not in the list).

To input a game just start typing the title, the dropbox will shrink to matching titles!
If you cannot find a game, don’t hesitate to add it to the list.

For awards that are either not for games (reviews) or have a much larger eligibility pool, you will have to type out your own choices.

Once you have filled out all your choices download the document as “Tab Separated Values” from the File > Download Menu:

This will end up in your download folder and that file you can then send to @RogerBW as a PM.

If you have any questions regarding the document/sheet please ask away and I will do my best to answer them or improve the sheet as needed.

edit: there is no category verification in there by the way, you need to make sure you nominate games for eligible categories (maybe next year we can be fancy)


Just joined and excited to vote, its not letting me DM you so hopefully that can be fixed in the next week and i can message. thanks


Hi, welcome

I believe you need to be at a basic trust level to DM usually, but @pillbox @yashima or @RossM should be able to sort it I believe.


Hi @Dominus, you can now PM. And welcome!


What if a game is listed in two subdomains, can you nominated in two different categories? If I remember correctly, this was somewhat an issue in the bgg awards.

Yes, but the two “category” awards that it’s listed under. (Best game, and Best Soloable Game, are special cases.) So Wingspan for example is Family, Strategy, and Soloable, but not any of the other categories.

Thanks @Evalien! Welcome to the forum. (You can now pm!)


Welcome to the site, Evalien!

(it appears RossM beat me to the punch on giving you the necessary permissions to send a PM!)

While you are welcome to pop in here just to submit your nominations, we do hope you’ll take a minute to look around and perhaps find a thread/topic that interests you (or maybe even start a new one!)


Thank you! Still finding my way here. :slight_smile:
