2009 International Gamers Award for best historical game

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


RECIPIENT OF THE 2009 INTERNATIONAL GAMERS AWARDS ANNOUNCED!


The International Gamers Awards committee is extremely proud to announce the recipient for the 2009 IGA in the Historical Simulations category.


In the Multi-Player category, the award goes to Unhappy King Charles!, the creation of designer Charles Vasey and published by GMT Games. Set in 1640s England, Unhappy King Charles! allows two players to decide whether Commons or Cavalier shall rule in England. Both seek to establish control over the country and of its economic structures. They seek not only to defeat their opponents in battle but also to seize control of the local government of England and Wales. This is the first IGA for designer Charles Vasey, while GMT Games has earned the award numerous times.


The International Gamers Awards were founded in 1999 for the express purpose of recognizing outstanding games, their designers, and the companies which publish them. The awards have gained widespread acclaim and have helped bring these outstanding games to the public’s attention.


The individuals who serve on our General Strategy and Historical Simulation committees are extremely qualified, knowledgeable and respected within the gaming hobby. Each and everyone have extensive experience in the playing, reviewing and critiquing of games.

I noticed that multiplayer thing myself but didn't think it was worth bothering about. (Greg actually sent out a corrected version to the original, but I failed to see the corrections--or else I somehow managed to post the wrong one, not an impossibility by any stretch!) IIRC, the historical game category only has one award regardless of number of players. It's the non-histo games award that has two-player and multi-player categories.

Ditto missing SPI 40. Very bummed I couldn't get out to that.

Peter, I checked out the website--I wonder if there isn't a misprint. Judging from past awards, multi-player categories mean more than two-player, do they not? There has been two-player categories in the past and I wonder if UNHAPPY KING CHARLES isn't really in the two-player category. Just caught my attention in your blog when you mentioned multi-player category and then said it was a two-player game! Yup, I have this game, just haven't played it yet! And I REALLY am bummed I missed the SPI 40 year event....sigh.
