Congratulations to all the winners (there are no losers in this comp) and thank you to all the authors who submitted games and all the people who played and rated the games.

The highest scoring game was submitted by one of the organisers, so this is not eligible for prizes. This means that the 2nd to 6th place-getters all get prizes. Prizes will be organised in the next day or two.

There were some really strong games this year. For anyone that’s playing through them, don’t stop at the top three or four. I’d especially recommend Lulu and the Asteroid of 100% Guaranteed Doom by @Zeth. This was originally written for his kids. It might have been a bit hard for beginners (it was a bit hard for me!), but it’s a really polished game for a first-time author.

Well colour me gobsmacked. Jasper is thrilled. Congratulations everyone - we’re camping this weekend so more coherent response to follow, but it’s been a real pleasure.
