I'm voting My Little Pony RPG, because WRF. Also, they missed the boat on best accessory. It should def be Star Trek shot glasses.

I have not tried any of these games. I am a failed consumer. *hangs head in shame*

A nomination for a new 40K ruleset seems like a lazy entry. I am willing to assume that the FFG miniatures ruleset is another lazy entry.

I was hoping to see Gaslands garner a nod on this side of the pond as well, honestly.

But the 40k revision is outstanding- it’s the best edition I’ve played, it’s the most accessible, and it’s really a pretty brilliant piece of -editing-.

Runewars...ha ha, Christmas clearance 2018.

What’s lazy is Codenames twice...and they are just variants.

In the main board game category there is so much distance between Gloomhaven and the others it’s not funny.

The only I've played is Raiders of the North Sea, which I enjoyed. I'm intrigued by Renegade scoring three of the card game slots. Is that their main design focus or did they just have a good year in that category? The only one of the three I'd heard of was Ex Libris until Wade's review of Fox in the Forest. Honshu looks interesting for a short Euro-style thing.

I've played Santorini. It's quite good. But it's also a rather old abstract game.

Everything else on the best of list...

*Snore*

Wha? Huh? *Wipes drool from mouth*
