Thank you VERY much to all of the Gnome Stew readers who voted to get Eureka nominated — this is a huge and unexpected honor.
The Golden Geek Awards are given out every year by BoardGameGeek, one of the largest and best-known board gaming communities on the web. They recently began covering RPGs and video games, and this is the first year that they’ve includes RPGs in the Golden Geek Awards.
We’re blown away to have Eureka nominated after just three months on the market, and we’re in pretty amazing company: competition for Best Supplement includes the Player’s Handbook 3, Dark Sun Campaign Setting, and the Burning Wheel Adventure Burner. My first reaction was “Whoa!”
