I love that a meta-cooperative game won the "Best Competitive Cooperative Game" category.

Edit: mistype. "Best Cooperative Game".

I think you misread or mistyped something. Dead of Winter won best Co-op.

Given that co-op is a variant that removes some of the best parts of this game, I think its inclusion in that category was a little unfair on the other nominees.

The other 2 awards were well deserved though

I don't think it was nominated in the Cooperative category just because of the Co-Op Variant in the back of the rulebook. I think it was nominated in the Cooperative category because they consider the base game to be more cooperative than competitive. It's even listed in BGG as a Cooperative game.

I guess there is no meta-ccoperative category yet, so cooperative was the closest.

Game of the year, what a joke.
It's a mediocre game at best which gets so repetitive after about 3 times.
Of course this is MY OPINION.

The collective BGG hive mind apparently disagrees with you, based on its rating. No game is for everybody.
