Nominations Closed!
Voting begins tomorrow (hopefully)

You know it, you love it, it's "Eat Poop, You Cat!"

Just shy of two months ago, our intrepid awards founder, tickmanfan,
brought us the first in what he didn't know would become a series of EPYC Awards!

That first GeekList was subtitled "The 1st month." It covered the awesome EPYC-ness that was the period between when Koldfoot first posted the call to Chit Chat on Jan. 7th, 2010 and, well, roughly one month later.

Following that lead, there will still be three categories as follows:

Best Game,
Best Picture,
Best Sentence,
Best Artist, --and--
Best Writer!

(Hey, it worked for the HHG...)

--->Plus two all-new categories:

Best Pen/Pencil ONLY drawing --and--

"Most with the Least"---> Best use of the MS Paint program

--->And, as an added Bonus (for you lucky Geeks only)

Best Stand-In

--->(encompassing both drawings and sentences by fill-in players)

Note:
My, how EPYC has grown! Since we can't just review everything that's posted as an EPYC chain, anymore, this is a time-limited awards session. Only chains that posted before March 15th can be nominated. (Please see source-chains below.)

Nominate away, and (as always) any GeekGold tipped will go to the eventual winners. This list needs your help!

Source Material

Interesting fact: Between Feb 8th (=/-) and March 15th, 42 new EPYC Threads posted.

That's a lot to digest, but don't despair. You've seen most of these before, and you're only looking for the cream of the crop. What made you laugh, what made you cry, what made you say 'What the...'?

To make it easier, I've decide to break them down into little bits, as follows:

THREADS YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED: (If you're a denizen of Chit Chat)
These threads only posted to the EPYC Play By Forum page.
(Nary a link was seen in Chit Chat)

Game 12, Thread G
Game 13, Thread K
Game 18, Thread H
and "The Lost Game" a game so obscure it didn't even post as it's own thread:
Game 17, Thread F


THREADS YOU MAY HAVE FORGOTTEN: In which only the link was posted in results thread.

Game 6, Thread C
Game 6, Thread J
Game 13, Thread G
Game 16, Thread B
Game 16, Thread D
Game 17, Thread E
Game 17, Thread I
Game 18, Thread A
Game 18, Thread B
Game 18, Thread D

The rest is PURE "Chit Chat EPYC results thread." But perhaps you don't want to wade through its 30 pages, checking the dates. Fear Not!

The time-limit for our awards (posted before March 15th) exists entirely between Pages 19 and 27 of the
Chit Chat EPYC results thread.

That link will warp you to Page 19, but be warned:

When you come to the
"Crest of the Geek Elvis Clan"
you're done.

(this is slightly less than halfway down page 27)

Happy hunting!

Best Sentence



Please nominate your favorites.



Interesting Fact: A sentence is often great because the direction it took with its picture, and vice versa. Feel free to include source-drawings. (Though smaller sizes (like "small") would be best, to highlight the writing.

Best Artist



Please nominate your favorites.



Interesting Fact: Quite a few former BGG thread-reply-only types are finding EPYC to be their main avenue of original contributions to the Geek as a whole; leading to the distribution of many new 'Image Uploader' microbadges! Go us.

Interesting Fact: If it's truly EPYC, there'll be no stopping it. By popular demand, all pictures nominated for 'Best Picture', and all sentences nominated for 'Best Sentence' will automatically earn their creators a spot in the 'Best Artist' and 'Best Writer' polls. Don't feel limited to those only, however, nominate away!

Best Pen/Pencil ONLY Drawing



Please nominate your favorites



Interesting Fact: Artists come in all shapes, sizes, talent-levels, and mediums, but these guys do it the Old-Fashioned way; no fancy gadgets and internet pic-grabs for these craftspeople! Well, 'no gadgets' besides a scanner, that is...

"Most with the Least"



Please nominate your favorite MS Paint drawing.



Interesting Fact: Standard with Windows since who knows when, Microsoft Paint, birthplace of the jpeg, is a slow-witted and stubborn mule of a program! To get something creative to come out right on the other side of a long slog with it takes a special kind of fortitude. For this, we salute you.

Best Stand-In



Please nominate your 'you saved us!' moments.



Interesting Fact: One thing that became clear shortly after the initial rush of EPYC chains began was that not everybody was able to fulfill all of their assignments. Often, real life got in the way...but real life was no match for these tireless caretakers! This category is for the people who brought your wonderful EPYC threads back into the light!
