The annual Game of the Year rite here at Strange Assembly in December is a two-part affair. We look at the games from this year, and declare a “Preliminary Game of the Year.” It’s preliminary because there’s no way to have played all (or even enough) of the games from a given year by the time that year ends. We also crown the actual Game of the Year, from the prior year. So, our December 2019 episode identified a Preliminary GotY for 2019 and the actual GotY for 2018.
This year is a little different because 2020. We aren’t declaring a Preliminary GotY for 2020 because we don’t feel like we’re in a position to meaningfully do that. You can listen more about it in the podcast:
We are, however, still crowning a Game of the Year for 2019. This is also discussed in the podcast, but the results are:
- Game of the Year 2019 – Wingspan (Stonemaier Games) (full review in Episode 262)
You can see all of the past winners on our permanent Game of the Year awards page.
