The coveted trophy

Annual awards given to AGS games for excellence (and one for badness!). Fur all future awards, games should be enetered into the AGS games database to be eligible. Nominees are selected by write-in, the most popular write-ins getting through to the top 5 (or 3 in some categories). These nominees are then voted on. The AGS Awards were started by DGMacphee and later taken on by Pesty and SSH. They are currently run by bicilotti, CJ and Jake.
