I'm setting up this thread for information and discussion about GotY 2017. I'm planning to accept nominations for a one-month period after all of the GotW results for 2017 have been confirmed (around the second week of January 2018). After nominations close (mid-February 2018), I'll post a new thread with the final nominees for the poll itself.
The rules for the nominations are as follows:
- 1) Each person may nominate up to 25 games.
2) You may nominate any game from 2017. The GotW archive would be a good place to start looking (it lists the top 3 games from each GotW vote; you can see the other games that made it to the GotW vote by clicking on the date in the 'Week' column).
3) If you nominate a game that didn't make the top 3 in GotW results, then I'll mention it on a list that will be maintained at the bottom of this post, so that others will be able to see it (one mention per game, regardless of how many nominations it receives).
Nominations should be submitted to me by aptomail or by private message on this forum. Please provide the date and full score of each game that you nominate, preferably with a link to the game log (e.g. The Duellist 10 - 47 Dave Noble, 1 January 2017).
If you've already submitted your full complement of 25 nominations and then you see a game posted on here that you hadn't noticed initially but want to nominate, you will be allowed to nominate that game in place of a game that you had already nominated. Alternatively, you can nominate games in dribs and drabs - even one nomination could make a difference!
Please let me know if you have any questions. Nominations won't be open for another few weeks yet, but feel free to start having a look back through some great games from 2017!
