If you haven’t heard yet, Dixit did, in fact, win the Spiel des Jahres.
Just like I predicted.
It’s also interesting to note that the Origins Awards were given out this past weekend at, of course, Origins. The winners (that I really care about) from that were:
I don’t know much about Eclipse Phase, but I’ve mostly heard good things. AYtT? won because Looney Labs has a good presence at Origins with lots of fans. Poo won because it’s named Poo. And Space Hulk… maybe it deserved it. I would have gone with Steam or Endeavor myself, but I can see how that population would go for Space Hulk instead. Still, it wasn’t the result I was hoping for overall to redeem the reputation of the Origins Awards.
