2015 Meeples Choice Award Winners

The voting for the Meeples Choice Awards has ended.  30 games were nominated during the preliminary round and during the final round, the following three games were chosen:

CODENAMES
FOOD CHAIN MAGNATE
THE VOYAGES OF MARCO POLO

Codenames was the overwhelming pick during the preliminary round and it finished in first during the final round by a comfortable margin.  It gives designer Vlaada Chvatil his first MCA win, after three of his earlier designs just missed making the top 3.  FCM is also the first MCA winner for the Splotter design duo of Jeroen Doumen and Joris Wiersinga.  Marco Polo is the second MCA win for the design team of Simone Luciani and Daniele Tascini, as their Tzolk’in was selected three years earlier.

Two games narrowly missed the winner’s circle:  Mombasa and the pre-election favorite (due to its status as the #1 game on the Geek), Pandemic Legacy.  The latter of these is having a hard time converting that top-rated spot into awards, as it lost out to Isle of Skye in the SdJ’s Kennerspiel award.  But the award season is just getting started.

Here are the complete vote tallies for the final round.  The first number after the game listing is the number of votes received during the last round, while the number in parentheses is the votes accumulated during the preliminary round.  Congratulations to all the winning games!
