Vote for your games of the year!
We’ve compiled the judge’s reckonings and whittled all the public nominations down to our final three for each category. Thank you to all our readers who nominated their favourite games from the last year(-ish, we've drawn a fuzzy line around the pandemic-end of the eligibility period).
And now it’s time for the final vote – view the nominations for each category below, or visit the voting page to weigh in on your favourites, and offer us why each game is your winner for the category. We’d love to hear about the games you love, and share them as part of our award show next week.
Voting closes on Sunday 19th September – and the winners will be announced at 5pm 25th September right here on tabletopgaming.co.uk.
What’s more is we’ll have a very special announcement as part of the awards show, which we hope you’ll love. Tune in at 5pm on 25th September to find out the good news.
