Don't worry about us. We already made it by finishing our games.

I'm surprised that literally not a single product I voted for made the top 3...

Remember, this has been a long journey. All of September was used to gather nominations - and the 10 nominees that went into a full month of October voting were all worthy candidates and really quite excellent products/podcasts top to bottom. The three you see above for each category are what the 'Geek community considered the best of an already great group of nominees.

Agreed - this is a really great short list, IMO!

Voting is complete (finished midnight last night) and results are now locked but the winners will not be announced until November 17th.

BGG con (held in Texas November 17th) is where they hold the Geekies and announce the winners. For now, the best we can do is release the top 3 in each category (in alphabetical order so as not to give any winners away).

The VSCA would like to thank everyone that voted for Diaspora! Honestly, losing to Dresden Files or Fiasco would be an honour, and winning over either slightly embarrassing. But, you know, not so embarrassing that we won't hoot and drink.

Who am I kidding, we'll do that anyway.

Kudos to all involved -- that's a hot list.

Pathfinder made it through the October voting period and was awarded a nomination:

http://www.rpggeek.com/thread/570952/2010-rpg-golden-geek-aw...

It did not make the top 3, however, in the final estimation of the Geek community. No award list is going to please everyone - but I think this list is solid and I'm proud of the community here for their selections.

These are great results, mostly because they're pretty close to the way I voted.
