MAGGIES 2011/2012 - WINNER(S?) ANNOUNCED
« on: 26 Jun 2013, 20:39 »
MAGGIES 2011 + 2012

Not a great way to start a thread, but two apologies first: sorry for missing last year's MAGGIES, and for holding this year's so late. In both cases, I did have something prepared but exams got in the way, and for 2011 it eventually became too late. So not wanting to miss a MAGGIES on my account, or cause somebody to miss out on the title, I thought it would be good if we held the two together. Now, glaringly huge timing issues aside, let's play and vote for our favourite entries from the last two years! :-D

It is working slightly differently this time around - only the winners from each month are eligible. This means there are 10 entries to choose from for 2011, and 9 for 2012.

A link to the voting form is at the end of each table. You do not have to vote for both years - you can do either or both. As always, please download and play all the entries for that year before deciding!

Voting closes on 31st July.

It keeps telling me that I have already voted, but I think my daughter must have done it when my AGS account was open on the family computer.  I hope she had good taste!  :)   So many good games!

Well it's the 31st July, meaning voting is closed, and we have our two winners! Or, do we?

For the first time, we have somebody winning two years in a row - our winner has taken both the 2011 and 2012 title! So, here are the results tables; votes are in ascending order.

I'd like to give a special mention to Radiant, who is only our 2012 runner-up for the sake of 1 vote. Also well done to Baron and Duzz, who got a respectable share of the vote for their entries. Thanks also to everybody who entered MAGS in the past two years, and all who played and voted for our nominees.

Finally, I'd like to invite our winner to join the estimable Order of the Maggot, and congratulate them on their very impressive grand-slam!
