ESSEN IS OVER !
So is this contest.
--^-- This was the "additional pot" for this list.
For the 5th time now, this was THE occasion for people to show us the best pictures they made at the SPIEL fair at Essen.
The awards: All entries had to be added until midnight Nov 7th / Nov 8th BGG-time.
People were asked to submit each photo or series as a single entry with the name of the game / designer / whatever and TELL us the CATEGORY for this picture.
Voting (thumbs to the entries) was open for 3 more days until midnight Nov 10th / 11th BGG-time.
The pot this year was made up of the following:
445 from my account.
+ the "additional pot": All tips to this list.
The total was devided by 18 into equal parts. 6 equal "1st places" got two of these parts and 6 equal "2nd places" one part. Prizes were given only in full . The rest was given to the picture I liked best from the pics not awarded.
The pot this year was incredible 1178 total.
