Congratulations to all of the many, many, many winners and nominees this year!
…did this set a new record, with the number of authors for Cragne Manor?
Definitely! I’m pretty sure the biggest winner before was Alabaster with 10, and the biggest nominee was Pick up the Phone Booth and Aisle with 13 authors, but I may be forgetting something. I’ve never seen any other game with over 20 authors though, so I’m sure this is a record!
Congrats all! Lots of cool looking games here I haven’t tried yet too.
Congrats to all!
Bogeyman is such a badass game.
