Pearple's Choice Awards 2019-2020 27 November 2020

Nominations are now open for the Pearple's Choice Awards for 2019-2020.

This set of boardgame awards was organised on the old Shut Up & Sit Down forums, but the organiser has gone elsewhere. So when nobody else seemed to want to do it, and since the SU&SD forum community has come to, I thought I would…

Of course I am not ashamed to tread on the faces of giants, so rather than invent my own I've borrowed the Hugo Award nomination and voting system: nominate up to five items in each category, then in the final ballot put the list of nominees in order of preference (including "No Award"). (Remember, people in the UK, our political masters think that we are too stupid to understand the idea of "putting things in order".)

Naturally I've written software to do the counting and in particular the fiddly elimination procedures – I've never previously put in code comments referring to which specific paragraph of the rules they implement – and once I'm happy with it I'll make it public.

You can join the nomination process here (you'll need to sign up to the forum, but it's run by me and I promise not to abuse your data).
