This website really is one of the more innovative sites that are out there for fans of games and gaming alike. Very entertaining and good for general info.

Also…Cards Against Humanity. A game that HAD to be made, in some way, shape, or form. Got to be my winner for the year.

Very well deserved, I was quite pleased to have the opportunity to vote for the site.

I really enjoyed Ascending Empires, but hadn’t thought of it as Game of the Year material. Given the options I was happy to vote for it. I’ll also add to the recommendation for Richard Borg.

I was one of the many that nominated BoardGaming.com. Received my vote, as well as Richard Borg for lifetime achievement. Also, if you haven’t yet played Ascending Empires, give it a shot and I think you may see why I nominated and voted it for board game of the year.

If you like RPGs, Hobomancer is a great game that creates it’s own unique experience unlike any other game out there. I’m actually typing this right now instead of prepping for my weekly game tonight like I should be.
