Well, out of 66 entries (a record number), each reviewed by 3 or 4 people, 11 got 2 nominations and 6 got three (or more). My little effort places in that latter top group, meaning I’m into the finals!
There isn’t really a prize, indeed winning tends to doom your game to obscurity and stasis, but it’s nice to be appreciated. Of the three people who read my game, all three of them thought it was the best one of the four they read. Those are good odds.
