1st Runner Up – Viticulture
2nd Runner Up – Trains
Also Receiving Votes: Caverna, Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Nations, Eldritch Horror, Coal Baron, Euphoria, Battle Lore (2nd Edition)

(Editor’s Note: We usually go by BoardGameGeek year of release, but you may notice that the official release year for Star Realms on BGG is currently listed as 2014. Well, we played it before then, not because of a preview/review copy, but because Jay was a Kickstarter backer. If we were doing it now, we would probably ignore that and would treat it as a 2014 game. But at the time we classified it as a 2013 game.)
