There are no special restrictions on voting; read a review before choosing to vote on it. You may vote for one review or for more than one.
I still haven’t played all the games, so I haven’t been reading every review (to avoid spoilers). And probably people won’t finish writing reviews until after the voting deadline. Can we extend the deadline a week or two?
Actually extending the deadline sounds like a good idea. There are probably people (authors among them) planning to release their reviews after the comp, and reviewers who are spreading themselves out over the whole comp period and aren’t done yet.
Thanks for your interest. The rules were stated in the nomination topic.
The nominations are final. No more reviews can be nominated. If you read a good review which isn’t nominated feel free to mention it in a comment. E.g. I enjoyed reading another roundup of reviews and interviews, Five Authors and Six Games(includes The Queen’s Menagerie / Mirror and Queen, Detectiveland, Cactus Blue Motel, 16 Ways to Kill a Vampire at McDonalds, Color the Truth), but, unfortunately, I only read it after the nomination deadline.
I sympathise that voters following a random shuffle may not have time to finish all the reviewed games. I will extend the Best review poll voting deadline although I can’t promise to be available after IF Comp.
Thank you to whomever voted for my review, however I feel the need to warn you that it does not hold up that well after reading it several times. The game holds up great, my review for it is kind of bad though. Emily Short’s review of “Take” is world class no matter how many times you read it…
