Last night, the Diana Jones Award committee, of which I’m a part, announced its shortlist for its 2014 award, which honors the most excellent things in tabletop gaming from 2013. This year’s list includes:
- Evil Hat Productions, a publishing company run by Robert Donoghue and Fred Hicks
- Hillfolk, a roleplaying game written by Robin D. Laws (Pelgrane Press)
- Paizo Publishing, a publishing company run by Lisa Stevens
- ROFL!, a family card game designed by John Kovalic (Cryptozoic Entertainment)
- Terra Mystica, a strategy board-game designed by Helge Ostertag and Jens Drögemüller (Feuerland Spiele/Z-Man Games)
Congrats to everyone involved in each of these wonderful games and companies!
