PnP fans the time has come for our beloved niche of the board gaming world to be honored by those of us who design, craft and play them. This is the first annual Print 'n Play Awards and it's all going to be handled by us. Hopefully we will be able to attract some new people to the world of PnP Games while we are at it but let's have some fun as well.

This thread here is the official nominations thread and they are open now until January 11th. That gives a full 2 weeks to consider nominations (and as we know how it can be for all people to see and participate.) Once nominations close I will put together a poll of the top responses. That means if you wish to nominate a game you should do so even if someone else already has. Only the games who get the strongest nominations will make the "short list" in the poll for final voting. Please keep you nominations to 3 per category.

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.

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.

Finally as 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 2011 as their design year. Please try and make sure the games you nominate are indeed from the year 2011. I know some great games came out in previous years, yeah I love them too but we are focusing on one year...2011. Thanks.

So without further ado, the categories are:

2011 PnP Game of the Year:

Best PnP Solitare Game:

Best PnP Wargame:

Best PnP 2 Player Game:

Best PnP Abstract Game (Must have no theme attached):

Best PnP Easy Craft Game (1-3 pages Max. for components):

Best PnP Intermediate Game (4-9 pages Max. for components):

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

Best Game Retheme for PnP:

I considered it but "Designer of the year" isn't really something I wanted to get into. Some people will produce a lot of games, others will do only 1...just seemed unbalanced at best as it felt like it would generate either the result of "Most Prolific" or "Best Game of the Year" anyway.

Is this open to all print and play games or just free ones? There were a few good pay-for-print games released, but I don't think they are as well known.

Open to ALL PnP Games so long as they were released in the year 2011.

Also...

I was asked specifically so I will post it here. I have no problem with PnP Designers nominating and voting in this process. Please jump in guys, you are definitely part of this community.

Difficult choices, lot's of good games that came out.
.
Tip for next year: make a geeklist with items for each category. In that item you put all the games that apply in a table with checkboxes. Easier to see the results and to look up all the games.
You could even do a 2-round voting: first round free for all, second round: top 5
If you need help with this, just geekmail me.

On to the voting:

2011 PnP Game of the Year:
Roboderby Express

Best PnP Solitare Game:
Shadows Upon Lassadar

Best PnP Wargame:
Sink the Carrier

Best PnP 2 Player Game:
Roboderby Express

Best PnP Abstract Game (Must have no theme attached):
-

Best PnP Easy Craft Game (1-3 pages Max. for components):

Best PnP Intermediate Game (4-9 pages Max. for components):

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

Nice, but not sure searching on the Print & Play category covers everything. May be more complete to search on the Web-published publisher:

Minion Games cut their teeth releasing PnP games and in keeping with tradition they did in fact release The Manhattan Project as a PnP file prior to it being released for only $5.00.

Just over 1 week left for nominations. We need everyone's participation so keep working on it and be prepared to post your nominations within a week. The poll will go up shortly thereafter (when I've tallied everything up) and voting will be open when the polls arrive.
