Hi PnP guys out there. Last year I started doing our own little PnP awards for the games WE, the PnP community thought were the best games of the year. Want to read about last years post it's right here.

As I said last year I feel this is different from the BGG Golden Geeks as this is going to be totally custom done by us the people who design, craft and play PnP games. It's our awards for the games we love to make and play. Last year I started late, got behind then went even later in getting things finalized but I am making a real effort to do things in a more timely manner this go around. Starting off with posting this NOW...yes I know the year's not over but that's how all these award thingies goes now isn't it?

The nomination phase (what we are doing now) will reamin open for a full 2 weeks. That means all nominating of games will end on December 24th hereby extended so final date is now Monday, January 7th, 2013. Everyone's probably got things to do on that day anyway and the next as well so no big deal right?

To nominate simply respond to this thread and list your nominations for each category. Just hit quote and erase all this stuff and put your nominations under the appropriate heading. PLEASE NOTE it's important that when you nominate a game you in fact DO tell me what category you are nominating it for. It's perfectly OK for you to nominate a game in several categories if you feel it truly lives up to all those in question. OR if you prefer to keep your nominations a little more...under wraps, you can certainly geekmail them to me. PLEASE put "2012 PnP Awards Nominations" as your subject line though. Thanks.

We will be giving out GG awards to the game designers who win in each category. This GG will come from the pool of gold tipped to this thread and the thread I create to hose the polls. This means the prize pots will not be determined until the winners are announced. If you wish to donate GG to the prize pots you may feel free to do so here and/or on the poll thread when it's created. As the tips given in these threads will be public knowledge you will know that the gold you tip does indeed make it to the winners. I'm a pretty honest guy like that.

Just like I stated last year, I intend to do this each year I want the awards to be year specific. That means all nominations must be games that were designed and are stated in the BGG database as being cited as 2012 as their design year. Please try and make sure the games you nominate are indeed from the year 2012. I know some great games came out in previous years, yeah I love them too but we are focusing on one year...2012.

Finally I would like to say that last year this was a very cool little thing that took place. The designers who won were quite pleased and even mailed me to let me know that it was an honor and did in fact bring some attention to their game(s). So our efforts in this are both appreciated and effective.

Thank you for taking the time to nominate, subscribe to this thread if you wish to be a part of the voting when I post the polls thread.

For a PnP maker, you're astonishingly bad at reading and following instructions

Best PnP Expert Game (10+ pages for components): Lawn Mayhem

Can I nominate my own game too?

It's available both for order through The Game Crafter, or as free PnP.. I don't know if this disqualifies it?

Also, it's a party game (doesn't really fit in any of the categories), and the number of pages to print depends on the number of people playing (so could be both Intermediate or Expert (6 players).

But for the full game, my nomination would be:

Best PnP Expert Game (10+ pages for components): What Do You Meme: The Meme Party Game

I just added a new category to the nominations list of Best PnP Family Game IIRC last year that was suggested afterwards and I forgot to add it so it's there now. I think it would fit in that category. The way I did it last year is that in order for a game to clear the nominations round it had to have at least 2 nominations. This kept it so every single game didn't get listed and put through. This threshold may go up to 3 nominations this year if I receive enough nominations to make that work but we'll see.

Just a quick question about Best Game Retheme for PnP:
Does this mean;
1. Best 2012 retheme of an existing game published in 2012
OR
2. Best 2012 retheme of an existing game published in any year

Unfortunately a quick search could not find an example of situation 1.
However for situation 2.
The "The Remainder" is a 2012 retheme of a 2011 game Dark Moon

Sorry for being a pain!

Not being a pain and good question. #2 is the goal here...best PnP retheme of 2012 of any existing game. This category sometimes doesn't have a lot to nominate but sometimes there's a rush on these. Who knows we'll see.

How does one get all of the files for The Icarus Twins? All I see on the game page are some graphics files in the gallery.

Nick has apparently submitted the files to be added to the BGG page, but for now they're available in the first post of this thread:

Can we please have a link to the geeklist/thread detailing last year's winners? thanks!

Also, according to the rules I can't vote for Eight minute Empire yet, can I? I backed it for $1 to access the PnP version.
