After all the discussions and due to the popular support to this project, we are going forward with creating the...
BGG Wargamers' Award.

The goals of this award are :
- To promote wargames at large
- To recognize quality wargames valued by the BGG community
- To showcase what are wargames to non wargamers
- To present a good selection of wargames produced in 2008 to people curious about wargames.


You can find all the details and the wargames in the pre-selection here: www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/46988

I gladly accept on this, while to be most fair and "above board" for everything, then I put it to YOU-all on nominating some worthy adherents as our 'peerage'. Since then, it shall allow anyone to approach another on this, so that I won't have to constantly be doing that myself, in order to garner the requisite amount for any "WAR-gang of 8" as these are commensurate on their qualifications. If more than that number were put up for selections, then we can VOTE for these to ascertain just whom were BEST qualified as regards their "bona fides". How's that?

One other important attribute, and that is we should have a decent cross-section on covering every aspect for this, such as there being some representative from ALL over the WORLD on these. If this might then result in many another that otherwise may be precluded, then perhaps we should adjust on it all, so as to vary the interests of which someone can bring into these proceedings?

A couple of comments:

1. Will designers of wargames on the preselection list be eligible for nomination? I would hope not

2. As well as having international representation, is it possible to ensure the final committee represents the various wargame genres, i.e. not just WWII, but people who actually play Ancients, ACW, WWI, tactical, operational, strategic, hex-and-counter, CDG, modern, air games, etc., etc.

Also if I can nominate a second, perhaps from the other side of the argument. Kenfelman might be good.

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

laugh I'll gladly begin on that, just as soon that these others speak on their own behalf as to be 'accepting' or 'declining' in their regards. If any others were suggested during the interim, then we can narrow it down further with some VOTE method on it all.
