Okay, so on to the nomination process.
Looking at the Hall of Fame will give you an idea of some of the games we are looking for. However, it is important to note that the standard for inclusion is historical significance and noteworthiness.
For a little more detail, you can look at our mission statement:Mission Statement wrote:The games in the BGG Hall of Fame are recognized for being noteworthy and historically significant to board games. Many of the games on this list are great games, but beyond that, they are games which are important and influential. They are the groundbreakers and innovators and even when newer, shinier games catch our fancy, we cannot deny that these games formed the building blocks of our hobby.
To be eligible for the BGG Hall of Fame, a game must be at least ten years old. The voting process is held once a year and is open to the entire BGG community. Currently, a game must be considered Hall of Fame-worthy by two-thirds of voters to be inducted. However, at least two games will be inducted every year.
To be eligible for nomination in the Hall of Fame, a game must be at least 10 years old and must not already be in the Hall of Fame.
Games that had a good showing in the nomination process last year were automatically nominated again this year. Also, the games with the most votes from 2002 (the newly eligible games) were also automatically nominated. BGG users were allowed to add up to the three games to the nomination list, which is how we got here.
On this GeekList, please thumb any game that you feel deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. Thumb as many or as few games as you'd like, but keep the standards listed above in mind. Debate and discussion are allowed and encouraged. Thumbing this GeekList will also increase visibility for the Hall of Fame.
The 20 games with the most thumbs will move on to the final voting, where games must be voted into the Hall of Fame by a 2/3 majority. However, at least two games will be entered into the Hall of Fame every year. Users are permitted to Abstain from the voting for any individual game.
Note that nominations are closed. If you think there is a glaring oversight, please keep it in mind for next year.
Deadline for thumbs: Monday, 1/15/13, 10pm (Server Time)
