Game of the Year (GotY) 2018 - voting

Post by Adam Gillard » Sun Feb 17, 2019 8:20 am

Thanks to all those who submitted nominations for GotY 2018. There were 7 nominees that made the cut-off for the final poll.

Voting rules:

Each person should submit one of 12 options for each game when voting: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 or Abstain (0 is worst and 10 is best). You can submit the same vote for as many games as you like. The games will be ranked by the average score received from the 0-10 votes (abstentions excluded), with the highest average score declared as the winner. You should submit a vote for every game, and abstentions are only permitted for games you were involved in (but you don't have to abstain in any case).

Nominees

Game A: Apterous Prune 0 - 146 Chris Hare
Game B: Tim Down 258 - 251 Chris Butler
Game C: Apterous Velvet 66 - 225 Chris Hare
Game D: Elliott Mellor 147 - 0 Apterous Prune
Game E: Mr Dog 0 - 57 Andrew Hypes
Game F: Marcus Hares 134 - 167 Hazel Drury
Game G: Rob Foster 715 - 723 Apterous Rex


VOTING FOR GotY 2018 IS NOW OPEN AND WILL CLOSE ON SATURDAY 16 MARCH 2019 AT 11.59pm. VOTES SHOULD BE SUBMITTED TO ME BY PRIVATE MESSAGE ON THIS FORUM OR BY APTOMAIL. PLEASE SUBMIT EACH VOTE ON A SEPARATE LINE, IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:

GotY is now coming up to its tenth running and I'd like to hand over the reins to a more active user of apterous. If you're interested and willing to commit the time to administer the nominations and the poll, then please let me know.

You'll have to carry on yourself. I'd quite like the idea of it being automated like game of the week.
