The games I have played (and tremendously enjoyed), ie Root, Keyforge and the Mind are all worthy winners (I rarely agree that much with the results of the GG Awards) in an otherwise not that great year for boardgames.

Congratulations to all !

IMO reprints should not be nominated for Golden Geek awards. Hannibal & Hamilcar is essentially an updated reprint (with some extra bits) of the older Hannibal: Rome Vs Carthage game (which itself has already won the 2008 Golden Geek award).

I don't think it's very fair to other designers/publishers who actually released a game for the first time in 2018 if reprints are allowed to qualify for and win the awards.
