It's that time again!

The 2014.1 2R1B Play By Forum awards will cover 26 games, spanning PBFs #38 - 63, so there will be a whole lot to remember and celebrate.

How this will work:

First, there will be a Geeklist for proposed awards. People can discuss and reminisce, and each Geeklist item will be edited to contain an informal list of nominees. Once nominations seem to die down, voting will open (probably later next week)

Second, people will PM me their votes. You can vote for something that wasn't nominated.

Third, there will be a Geeklist for the award winners.

Let’s get started. Geeklist for proposed awards here:

I think it's a good idea, but clearly it's Rochelle. Right?!

I'm mostly just softening her up for the next time I need to betray her. >=)

Whoa! I was thinking about them after I answered, about how there were a lot of great new people.

That's a great list! I changed my mind. It'd be too hard to pick one I think.

I don't necessarily think it's a bad award idea, but "encouraging newbies to be memorable" is a very weird way of phrasing this. I don't think anyone is going to start playing PBF games here with the intention of winning this rookie award (or any other award). People should start playing because they're interested in the game, or because they like the big group of regular players.

Hmm, when I threw Rookie of the Season out there, I wasn't actually considering a subjective award but just thinking for the winningest (most wins) new player.

I guess that's one way of doing it, though that could end up with the same person getting multiple award for winning. Like last year Shawna was a rookie but had the second highest win percentage.

Let's see how the stats turn out this year. The only game I'm missing at this point is BlueTorch's PBF #58. A post was never made regarding who was on which team and which team won (as far as I know) so I don't know have data to input.

I didn't have internet access at work all week until now. There were some nominations I wanted to make but wasn't able to. So I guess it will close in a couple of days.

Voting is open!

Special rule this time since we have so much Geekgold:
If you want, you can vote for up to 3 nominees per category.



How to vote:

Send your votes to me via PM

You do not have to vote for all categories

You can vote for yourself

All voting is 100% confidential. I will not tell anyone who voted or how anyone voted.

If you wish, you can include the reason for your vote. If I get enough good supporting quotes, I'll include the quotes when I announce the winners.


The winners will be announced in a separate Geeklist.

A life, some would argue, is a series of problems. There’s no denying the truth in that – but why get lost in it? Why not rise above the truth… and lead a good life? Shouldn’t we all look at problems as a chance for us to find… solutions?

Vote for anything that has a Geeklist item on the Nominations Geeklist:
http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/171556/two-rooms-and-a-boo...

Vote for whoever/whatever you think should win. Except please do not vote for anyone who has not played in at least 3 PBFs from PBF #38 - #63.

Put your votes in a format that I'll understand in a Geekmail. Include reasons if you want (I usually compile the reasons for the Awards Geeklist)
