The goals of this award are :
- To promote wargames at large
- To recognize quality wargames valued by the BGG community
- To showcase what are wargames to non wargamers
- To present a good selection of wargames produced in 2008 to people curious about wargames.

d10-1 The Nomination Committee of 9 members is composed of :
Desaix, Scoutmom, Grognard, Kiraly, Alphawolf, mrbeankc, Harae, Billyboy and GeneSteeler

This committee has 2 vice-presidents: Desaix and Billyboy

d10-2 The pre-selection list is put together. It includes the 20 top wargames here on BGG that were, on the 5th Oct 2009:
- Released in 2008
- Tagged as wargame on BGG
- Ranked on BGG (at least 30 ratings)
- No deluxe versions or re editions of old games
They are pulled out of the BGG wargame ranking list here : http://boardgamegeek.com/browse/boardgame?sort=wargamerank

2 games have been voted out of the pre-selection list for not matching properly the criteria at the time of pre-selection :
- A Tomb for an Empire
- War for Edah


d10-3 Each member of the Nomination Committee can veto any game off the pre-selection for not being a wargame.
If a game receives 5 vetos it is out of the list otherwise it stays.

None of the remaining qualified games has been vetoed out by the committee for not being a wargame.
War for Edah is the only game that have been vetoed out for not being a wargame but it did not pass the previous eligibility criteria vote.

d10-5 All the remaining games are the official nominees for the 2008 BGG Wargamers' Award.

d10-6 We organize a vote. Everybody on BGG can vote appointing 3 top wargame for this awards. The one with the most votes wins, the second and 3rd are determined by vote count as well... Vote will end the 30th Oct midnight.
