VOTING IS OPEN! F:AT Reader's Choice 2012! 21 Feb 2013 14:57 #144794

The following is a repost of my blurb from this week's article. As specified, you may post your votes here to this thread if you want.


The nominations are in, and when the smoke cleared and the votes were tallied, we now have YOUR Final Five in each category! And unlike Battlestar Galactica, THESE Final Five weren't drawn randomly out of a hat!

(Wow, how's *that* for a timely joke, huh?)

Here's how it's going to work. At this point, one of the five in each category will win. You can vote one of four ways--by sending me a PM through the site with your votes, post them below in the comments section, by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. I'll also start a thread in the forums, and you can vote there as well.

The rules are simple--one vote per category, one set of votes per user. As we've done in years past, feel free to add your quotes, your rationale, your voice to your votes, to sway other would-be voters, or to get your name in lights when I do the results column. The user quotes have been a favorite for many readers, so let's make this year no different! Votes will be accepted starting immediately and running through next Monday, February 25th, 2013.

So here we are...your top nominations in each category, in random order, were as follows:

Best Wargame Nominees, 2012:

All good games here. I guess it was pretty good year for Wargames.
1812: Invasion of Canada - Fun and light, innovative team play
Andean Abyss - Interesting and innovative
1989: Dawn of Freedom - Good but too close to TS and not as good as TS
Virgin Queen - Good but too close to HiS and not as good as HiS
Sekigahara - Innovative, fun, interesting, I'm 5-0 in Sekigahara, best looking game.

As good as all these games were I'd probably vote for Angola, Armatures to Arms or Pax Baltica any of these but I'll vote for:

My vote is: Sekigahara!

Best Adventure Game, 2012:

Legends of Andor - I'm looking forward to trying this out. It sounds good
Mice & Mystics - Actually, better than I thought it would be after hearing everyone else complain about it
Agents of SMERSH - Actually, worse than I thought it would be
Robinson Crusoe - Innovated, told a great story
Zombicide - It's a good Zombie game but it's still another Zombie game

My vote is : Robinson Crusoe!

Best Game of the Year, 2012:

Puzzle Strike: 3rd Edition
Spartacus - Great price, fun game, great flavor text
Mage Wars
Android: Netrunner
Zombicide

My vote is: Spartacus!

This one was tougher than the rest, but I don't think more aliens really adds much to Cosmic Encounter (heresy!) while WLA proved me Netrunner was only going to turn more amazing with time.

It seems very fanboyish but it's a stand I make. A:NR is, so far, one of the best games I have ever played, a category where I put exactly eight games. The other games simply didn't have a chance against it.
