What can one say? 2007 has been a year of many great designs and new faces in the arena. Many new designers have arisen and taken their piece of the cake, just as oldies return releasing their projects and foreigners get much attention to their work through translation. The overall number of designs submitted is lower than previous years, but the quality has risen a lot. A much higher percent of the designs are above average and high class designs, and that is reflected in the results below.

There has been quite a number of ties in the markings, not only for the first place but for all places. Anyhow, I wont make you read much further to soo the results. here they come, the winners of the Game of the Year Awards!

Enough to finish When the Wheel Breaks?
You mean the middle. He did the beginning and the end.

EDIT: Then again, that's the same thing...nevermind.

You (Dantares) also made a good impression with your campaigns. So many hours, wrestling with idea's. Playtested tons and tons of other work of other people.

Congrats Ingo

WTWB wasn't complete, but it was an exhibition of first rate design all the same. I played it over winter break, and it sort of gave me an itch to design. Maybe if school lets up ...

By the looks of the results, I expect that there are a few other must-plays in the blacksmith.

Thanks again guys... but I'm not actively designing or playing AoK at the moment, so WTWB is not likely to be finished. I still step in here occasionally though, because I like this forum.
