It's a testament to the quality of these submissions that almost EVERY judge had a completely different list of games. I was hoping that there would be a few clear winners, but instead, it's a wide spread between several different entries.
So, to speed up the final selection process, here's the plan:
Every judge will give certain games a number of points. Two games will get 5 points, two games will get 4 points, two games will get 3 points, etc.
This way, each judge will have to evaluate 10 games, (which is beyond their own list of 5). This way, hopefully, we'll be able to see which games score highest across the most judges. Depending on how close the results are, we'll have another round of judging for the final top 3.
Check out the finalists on the web page, read some amazing games, and enjoy the incredible variety and quality of these submissions!
