I'm planning to write up my thoughts about all the games sometime
soon, but for now I will just say that I thought Virus Fight was head
and shoulders above the other 7 games, and I'm pretty surprised it
didn't win, especially given the apparent preference towards no-luck
games in past competitions (VF was the only such game this time).
Jorge, I think the game is fine as it is, and I hope you don't get
discouraged by the results of this particular vote.
