2012 RPG Golden Geeks

The RPG Golden Geek Awards for 2012 are revealed! Once again I'm very proud of the selections our community has chosen - all the nominees and finalists were worthy contenders, but there can only be one set of winners.

These awards are being simultaneously announced here with the live announcement ceremony at BGG.con

2012 Podcast of the Year

Joining YSDC: Lovecraftian Media (formally Yogsloth) and The Walking Eye Podcast is our newest winner: Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff

Congratulations to Kenneth Hite (@kennethhite) and Robin D. Laws (@RobinDLaws) for their superb work on this new Podcast. Both are active on Twitter and are members of the RPG Geek community! This is Ken's second Golden Geek (the first was for Bookhounds of London). This is Robin's first Golden Geek award.


2012 Best Artwork and Presentation

Joining The Dresden Files Roleplaying Game and Mouse Guard Roleplaying Game Box Set is our newest winner: The One Ring: Adventures over the Edge of the Wild

Congratulations to Cubicle 7 Entertainment (@cubicle7) and the Art and Production staff who worked on this amazing book! This is Cubicle 7's first Golden Geek award.


2012 Best Supplement

Joining Cthulhu Invictus (2nd edition) and Bookhounds of London is our newest winner: Fiasco Companion

Congratulations to Jason Morningstar (@jmstar) who is no stranger to RPG Geek. He has been highly active here in our community over the past couple of years. Although his Fiasco (2009) did not win in the one year it was eligible, it is obvious his masterpiece has become a staple for RPG Geeks and is showcased in our forums almost daily. This is Jason's first Golden Geek.


And finally the big one...

2012 RPG of the Year

Joining The Dresden Files Roleplaying Game and Apocalypse World is our newest winner: Dungeon World (@Dungeon_World)

Congratulations to Adam Koebel (@skinnyghost) and Sage LaTorra (@olde_fortran) for their amazing adaptation of Apocalypse World into classic high fantasy. The core book for this has just been released and this game has won based on the strength of the Beginner book released last year at GenCon and the beta playtests. After having just sat down and read the full release I can safely say that this is going to be a huge hit on the RPG Geek play-by-forums in 2013! Great work guys! This is Adam and Sage's first Golden Geek award.


Feel free to tweet about the winners and post on various blogs, websites, etc. You can also follow the action with our Twitter feed @rpggeek. Additionally, most of the winners have RPG Geek accounts and are part of our community so post below with your comments for them to read. Our community continues to rocks - and we put that on public display with every great set of awards we produce.

Each of the winners who have an account on RPG Geek will receive the following prestigious microbadge mb. If you are an artist or production staffer involved with any of these books and would like the 2012 Golden Geek microbadge, please sent me a geekmail. Click on the Golden Geek logo (to the upper right) for a full 1024x1024 official version of the logo which you are free to use on your website or to promote the award. I will be in contact with the winners to gather mailing addresses for the shipping actual physical hardware.

Congrats to Ken & Robin! It's only been around a few weeks but has rocketed to the top of my playlist each week - extremely well put together with lots of interesting content. Not always directly related to RPGs, but all the better for it.

I hadn't even heard about their podcast until it got a nomination a couple months back. Obviously I had a listen - and have now almost caught up with all their shows. Top stuff indeed!

Many, many thanks to everyone who voted for us. I think I can safely say that both Robin and I are a lot honored and a little dumfounded at our dizzying ascent, especially given the superb talent represented by the other nominees.

I join Ken in expressing my thanks for this signal honor. Considering how new the show is, this result is truly stunning. Along with behind-the-scenes mover and shaker Simon Rogers of Pelgrane Press and Profantasy Software, we'll raise a grateful toast when we meet in London at the end of the month.

Thanks also goes to John Kovalic for his splendid website illustrations and to Dork Tower for its sponsorship, and to sponsor DriveThru RPG. We share your kudos with James Semple, who created the music we use on the show, and sound engineer Robert Borges.

We'd also like to acknowledge the illustrious company of our fellow nominees, and most of all to thank award voters and organizers. We take this honor as an instruction to continue talking about stuff, and will endeavor to make good on that mission.

Enjoy the rest of the show, BGG.con attendees!

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.
