Hokey smokes, we’re back at the turn of the century! So crawl out from your Y2K bunkers and vote like it’s 1999! Plus one!



Back in ol’ ’00, we nominated 25 games, although I only have vote totals on the top 10 finishers. Here are the nominees, in alphabetical order:



Acquire

Aladdin's Dragons

Attila

Babel

Battle Cry

Carcassonne

Carolus Magnus

Cartagena

Citadels

Dia de los Muertos

Empires of the Ancient World

Hera & Zeus

Ivanhoe

La Citta

Lord of the Rings

Merchants of Amsterdam

Metro

Star Wars: Queen's Gambit

Taj Mahal

The Princes of Florence

Traumfabrik

Way Out West

Web of Power

Zapp Zerapp

ZERTZ



I guess the reason Acquire made the list was because of the Avalon Hill version (the one with the yellow box cover featuring the giant businessman yanking on a skyscraper) that was released in 1999. Looks like we were a little more lax with our eligibility requirements back then. Just use your judgment of whether this game is worthy of your vote or not.



I also found these well ranked games that didn’t make the original list. If anyone seconds them, we’ll toss them into the mix as well:



Battle Line

Blokus

Hamsterrolle

Java

Meuterer



Finally, as usual, we’ll accept nominations for any other 2000 games. Any designs that get a nomination and a second will be added to the list.



Make any nominations and seconds that you want for the next couple of days. The vote will begin on Thursday. I’ll let it run until next Monday and then announce the results. So let’s recapture that millennium spirit and make with the suggestions!
