Results of 2014 Meeples Choice Awards

The Spielfrieks user group has completed its voting for the 2014 Meeples Choice Awards and the winners are:

ROLL FOR THE GALAXY
CASTLES OF MAD KING LUDWIG
SPLENDOR

The first two games were well ahead of the pack, but the fight for the last spot was spirited. Both Deus and Istanbul finished only one vote behind and four other games were within striking distance.  Congratulations to the designers:  Wei-Hwa Huang, Tom Lehmann, Ted Alspach, and Marc Andre.

Here are the final results.  For each game, the first number shown is the number of votes received during the final round (out of 112 votes cast).  The value in parentheses is the votes the game got during the nominations stage (out of 100 votes cast).

      Thanks, Jacob, it was great having you. It was very rewarding to have so many new folks join the group in order to vote, including quite a few names I’m familiar with (such as yours). I’m hoping most or all of the newcomers will join in next year as well.
