The International Gamers Awards is an annual award meant to recognize "outstanding games and designers, as well as the companies that publish them", with the distinctive element to the IGAs being that the committee members come from countries around the world, so ideally their choices represent an indication of games with a broad appeal to multiple audiences.

With that in mind, here are the 2019 IGA nominees for the multiplayer category:

Architects of the West Kingdom, by Shem Phillips and S J Macdonald (Garphill Games)
Blackout: Hong Kong, by Alexander Pfister (eggertspiele)
Brass: Birmingham, by Martin Wallace, Gavan Brown & Matt Tolman (Roxley)
Coimbra, by Flaminia Brasini & Virginio Gigli (eggertspiele)
Gùgōng, by Andreas Steding (Game Brewer)
Hadara, by Benjamin Schwer (Hans im Glück)
Just One, by Ludovic Roudy & Bruno Sautter (Repos Production)
Key Flow, by Richard Breese, Sebastian Bleasdale & Ian Vincent (R&D Games)
Newton, by Simone Luciani & Nestore Mangone (Cranio Creations)
Res Arcana, by Tom Lehmann (Sand Castle Games)
Root, by Cole Wehrle (Leder Games)
Teotihuacan: City of Gods, by Daniele Tascini (NSKN Games/Board&Dice)
Underwater Cities, by Vladimír Suchý (Delicious Games)
Wingspan, by Elizabeth Hargrave (Stonemaier Games)

And the 2019 IGA nominees in the two-player category are:

Gettysburg, by Mark Herman (RBM Studio)
Kero, by Prospero Hall (Hurrican)
KeyForge: Call of the Archons, by Richard Garfield (Fantasy Flight Games)
Lincoln, by Martin Wallace (PSC Games)
Nagaraja, by Bruno Cathala & Théo Rivière (Hurrican)
Napoleon Saga, by Frédéric Romero (Oeuf Cube Editions)

The winner in each category will be announced in late September 2019.

(Disclosure: BGG owner Scott Alden is an IGA member, as is yours truly, but I haven't voted in roughly a decade. Mostly I kibitz and provide email addresses when nominees and winners need to be notified.)
