TechRaptor Awards 2015

Andrew Otton / January 11, 2016 at 10:30 AM / Blog

Awards season is upon us and the time has finally come for us to get in on the action. Over the past month or so we have been getting to the point of awarding games in a series of phases (read more about how that worked here). We settled on 10 categories, which we felt was the upper limit of a good amount without going overboard. 

One bit of oversight was not including our Best Board Games of 2015 for readers voting, and that is my fault so I apologize. However, we will be handing out that award sometime near the end of the week so keep an eye out!

I’d also like to thank all the readers who voted in our Readers’ Choice portion of our awards. We received nearly 100 submissions, which was great!

This post will act as a sort of hub post that will be updated daily throughout the week as we reveal the winners over time. Here’s a reminder of our nominees and the categories:
