D-Day Dice Storms the Category

Midways and Monsters


****************************************



After a 3 week nomination period, and a 2 week voting period the results are in.

Each year I try an leave the categories flexible and look for trends that we can group together. Taxonomy of unpublished games is difficult since for some little is known.

In addition to a trend of cooperative games, a trend of dice-based games emerged sufficient for a category. We'll see if this continues next year.

All of this year's entrants are Kickstarter funded, including the leader of the category that took Kickstarter by storm... D-Day Dice.

Following up in second place is Carnival which is shipping as this is written. Sadly, I missed out on the Kickstarter phase of both.

A close third was FrankenDie which I was fortunate enough to catch while it was still open on Kickstarter.

It will be interesting to see if this dice-based Kickstarter trend continues, and how it develops.

Without further ado here are the Most Anticipated Dice-Based Games of 2012 as determined in this most unofficial, informal and unscientific experiment.

Previous Year's Results:
None
