*** NOMINATIONS are CLOSED! Please vote in the Pearple's Choice Best of 2016 VOTING THREAD! ***
As this year winds down in its horrible, terrible, very bad fashion, one thing remaining to look forward to are the inevitable end-of-the-year best-of-the-year shenanigans most all enthusiast hobby websites indulge in!
And if I type that with a certain amount of exasperation, it's only because this ritual has become a little rote in my view--there are only so many top 10 lists a hobby enthusiast can digest, and it's nice to get a little variety.
So--being the resident lover of our website's polling features--I figured, why not mix it up and give democracy a try? It hasn't disappointed us yet...right?
Anyhoo--rather than me undemocratically electing a slate of potential candidates, I thought we could have a nominations thread, leave it open for a week, and then follow it up with a voting thread! And this time, voting will be done right--no need to restrict to a top 10, no need to cast a vote for just a single game--let the people's voice ring true, unfettered by false binaries...!
So, post up your nominations here--but keep in mind THIS THREAD IS FOR NOMINATIONS, NOT VOTES! So if you see your pick on the list already, no need to repeat.
Only requirement is that the game was published in 2016. Reprints and second editions are valid in my book.
So go to! What was your best game of 2016?
EDIT: Oops! Forgot about expansions--but just throw them on here, too, and we'll vote for best expansion as well!
