Tournament of Simulation Winners Announced

Joust-tournament-of-roleplaying-simsThe Tournament of Simulations is pleased to announce the winners of this year’s tournament.

Over the past six weeks, a dozen judges busily reviewed the nearly 50 games that chose to enter this year’s tournament.  Each game reviewed was compelling in its own right, full of dedicated players and entertaining stories.  Nothing should be taken away from those that took part but did not place; for in the end this year’s competition was extremely tight, with mere points separating first and second place, and many places beyond that.  In the end, the14 winning games, representing 8 groups, and spanning 10 genres, are representative of the diversity and creativity present throughout our entire gaming community.

    What a great list of sims! Let me also give a shout out to our fellow IDF sim, the USS Victory–champion in the Trek division! Way to go, Sabrina and company!

    Though it is a little disappointing that there were no superlative awards this year. 🙁

      Special congrats also to Phoenix Roleplaying and Federation Sim Fleet for taking home four awards each this year. Not an easy feat! Six total clubs represented this tournament.

      It’s also neat to see a few repeat winners from last year: Before the Mast, Fighter Ops, YSS Eucharis, Blue Dwarf, and USS Victory. I hope I didn’t miss anyone there!
