does a fantastic job of planning the survey, collecting and analyzing the votes, and announcing the results. Posting the results in reverse order is a great strategy, which builds suspense. You'll find many comments on the GeekList as to why people like a particular game, as well as Kevin's statistics about each one.

"(new)" means it did not appear in last year's 200, even if the game had appeared in previous years. Of course, both genuinely new and returning are more common toward the bottom of the list. Keep in mind also that "new" does not mean no one nominated it last year; just that if nominated it didn't make it into the top 200.

does a fantastic job of planning the survey, collecting and analyzing the votes, and announcing the results. Posting the results in reverse order is a great strategy, which builds suspense. You'll find many comments on the GeekList as to why people like a particular game, as well as Kevin's statistics about each one.

"(new)" means it did not appear in last year's 200, even if the game had appeared in previous years. For example, Castellion had been on the list several times, but was off the bottom of the list in 2019, so it appears here as "new". Of course, both genuinely new and returning are more common toward the bottom of the list. Keep in mind also that "new" does not mean no one nominated it last year; just that if nominated it didn't make it into the top 200.

does a fantastic job of planning the survey, collecting and analyzing the votes, and announcing the results. Posting the results in reverse order is a great strategy, which builds suspense. You'll find many comments on the GeekList as to why people like a particular game, as well as Kevin's statistics about each one. "(new)" means it did not appear in last year's 200.

Actually, here's a much more useful retyping than mine:
https://emilbrett.github.io/SoloQuester/

1. Spirit Island
2. Mage Knight Board Game
3. Terraforming Mars

A list of the news forum announcements of the Golden Geek Awards. Not the GeekLists, but the forum posts. I just want to be able to see not only who won, but the final list of nominees, and find those posts easily. Someone must have done this already, but I don't know where to find that. And besides, the links are taking up space in my Quickbar! In the beginning, the time period considered in the voting was not aligned with the calendar, so that the winners for a particular year could be announced at the end of that year. Starting with the awards labelled '2013' below, this was changed; the year number of the awards is the calendar year in which the games were released, and the nomination and voting period is early in the following year. For example, the 2020 process started on April 12, 2021: 15th Annual Golden Geek Awards - Nominations Open!

does a fantastic job of planning the survey, collecting and analyzing the votes, and announcing the results. Posting the results in reverse order is a great strategy, which builds suspense. You'll find many comments on the GeekList as to why people like a particular game, as well as Kevin's statistics about each one.

I'm relatively new here, and when I found last year's results, I typed them in "frontwards" in a text file for my own reference. I am doing the same thing this year, then decided to put it on the site. Someone else must be doing this, and when I find it I'll take mine off. This is the second derivative thing I've done here on BGG; one day I'll think of something original to say.
