It's always a toss up whether political campaigns are are more like war or a circus. It is possible that the powers behind the throne here decided that they didn't want to see a single game in more than one category, though I think that is silly. Of course, it is also possible that not enough of the nominating committee voted for it. Come to think of it, the most likely explanation is that it wasn't on the list of games published in 2007, which we were given to choose from. If I can track down the list I will double check it.

Thanks for replying Peter. My tongue was planted in my cheek. I know the category is really meant for wargames. That said, I hope folks contemplate that it might JUST be possible, that a game could be about history and NOT be a wargame.

I was a little puzzled about that, but the General Teo-Player is more prestigious in a sense than the histo-game category (too wargame like!).

Well Ted, we did get a nomination for 1960 in the general two-player game category. Apparently, it was insufficiently "historical" for this side of the equation. But, a CDG nonetheless.

Dav e,
This procedure is indeed a bit tortuous. It is one that has been in use under various guises for some time and for otehr awards systems as well. I'm not in a position to offer a better alternative!

AT first glance, the scoring system for the awards seems a bit counter-intuitive, almost like the tie-break procedure in the 08 Olympic gymnastics. Link:

Doh. How silly. I guess my only excuse is advancing age and senility. And the difference in perception between cdg and CDG. How do you delete posts on this thing? :-)
Comment by Ted Torgerson on August 27, 2008 at 6:37pm
card driven game, like We the People.
Comment by Peter Perla on August 27, 2008 at 4:33pm
I hesitate to show my ignorance, but what is a cdg? A collectible dog game?
Comment by Ted Torgerson on August 27, 2008 at 4:01pm
Another good year for wargames. I would have liked to see a cdg on the list of nominees.
