This year, scoring is entirely community-driven! Using an interface on this website (coming soon), anyone with a ContentDB account may log in to participate. This will allow everyone to have a chance to make a game and cast their vote.
Each reviewer will be presented with a randomly sorted list of all submissions to sort (from favorite to least-favorite). The average rank of each package (after automatic penalties) determines its final score.
Rankings from members who have received 10 or more helpful review points on ContentDB (or have the
Editor rank or higher) will have an added 10% weight. These are sort of like "mini-judges".
Things to Consider
||How intuitive and enjoyable is the gameplay? Is it a fulfilling experience? Is there a clear goal?

||Is the game well-polished or packed with stuff to do? Is the art and sound consistent and cohesive?
||How well does the game utilize the theme(s)? Did it apply the theme(s) in a clever way?
||Reduces final score by 20% (additive)
