After the relative success of last competition I thought things were looking up, but I must say I'm pretty disappointed.
I was surprised, too. Last time, I was lamenting that I didn't get to play all the games that caught my eye. This time, I played just as many of the games... but none of them really grabbed me. It felt more like work than play at points. My fellow playtester and I quit and played Pylon instead. And so I just don't feel right submitting a ballot.
Perhaps the design restriction was *too* restrictive. I know it had good intent, but, apparently, it's really hard to make a great game with such a limitation.
Anyway; I say call it and count the votes. -- Dale Sheldon dales@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
