Origins Awards

 GAMA announced the Origins Awards today. For those of you not familiar with the Origins, they are the American version of the Spiel des Jahres, the German awards for best boardgames of the year. The Origins cover more categories than the Spiel, as RPG and miniatures rules and lines, as well as board and card games, qualify for Origins Awards, while the Spiel is only awarded to board and card games.  Here is the list:
