I noticed that Worldsmith now has 15 5 star reviews that were delivered by people who only registered for one day and never came back.
I also noticed that worldsmith is the only game that has multiple 2-votes on the xyzzy polls, which are only supposed to have one vote.
The only other games I’ve seen that have this level of drive-by voting from people who don’t participate much are MTW’s games, one of which was disqualified from Spring Thing for vote fraud.
I think Worldsmith is very, very good, but it’s voting history doesn’t fit the voting pattern of even the best of other games. Given the timing, I’m concerned about possible vote stuffing in the XYZZY awards.
