So now it’s time for a really long trip in the Wayback machine: 2002, a whole 15 years ago! I’m sure a bunch of you weren’t even in the hobby at that point, but I bet you recognize the top games of that year. Here are the 25 games we nominated for the award:



Age of Steam

Bang!

Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers

Clans

Clippers

Dschunke

Fist of Dragonstones

Goldland

Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation

Mexica

Modern Zeiten

Odin's Ravens

Piratenbucht

Pizarro & Co.

Pueblo

Puerto Rico

Santa Fe Rails

Settlers of the Stone Age

Star Wars: Epic Duels

StreetSoccer

Too Many Cooks

TransAmerica

Trias

Wallenstein

Wildlife



The top-ranked games from 2002 that weren’t nominated include these three. As usual, if anyone seconds them, they’ll be included.



Hammer of the Scots

Keythedral

Himalaya



If you have any other titles from that year that you’re inclined to vote for, nominate them and if they’re seconded, they’ll be added to the list as well.



Make your suggestions for the next couple of days. I’ll start the voting on Wednesday and let it run through next Monday. Have fun reliving the deep, departed past!

Himalaya was published in 2004.

Marchands d'Empire was a PnP made available in 2002. And very few, if
any, of us would have played it.

I think this should be held for 2004.

Excellent catch about Himalaya, Chris! Yeah, the 2002 version was web published, so it wasn't even a physical copy. I don't think there's anyway we can consider this a 2002 game and it wouldn't even have been considered except for the bizarre way that the Geek assigns dates to games. So no nomination for you, Himalaya--you'll have to wait for our 2004 retrospective.

I'll second Keythedral and
also second Himalaya.



I agree with Larry : 2005 was not a good year for me. I struggled to vote for 3 and probably shouldn't have, but it's rough to have the power to vote and not use it.

However 2002 is a much better year. I'm going to have to make some rough choices among about 10 of the games listed so far, and I look forward to seeing what else gets nominated.
