Pearple's Choice 2018--VOTE NOW! ...on *so many* categories...!

Fog of Love is a 2017 game (see BGG).


With much regret I withdraw the submission. I though it went on sale in 2018 but maybe 2017 was a limited run.


Keyforge is definitely an original concept. I’m skeptical that it’s a good, worthwhile concept, but original for sure.


Write In Vote: Maiden Quest


Write In Vote: Consentacle


While Consentacle is indeed a fantastically unique game, it came out in 2014 according to BGG.


It released in 2018. From the 2017 Kickstarter:

“Consentacle was originally produced as a showcase prototype for the No Quarter exhibition of games, with only a few sets in existence. We’re bringing it to Kickstarter to fund mass production because so many people have asked if they can have a copy.”
