I loved and own many of those nominated games, but I have to say that MLwM absolutely deserves it's multisweep: not only for excellence, but for the major, major impact it is going to have and is having and game design. Be afraid, Dr. Czege.

Thanks guys. I'm still so completely overwhelmed by the experience that I don't know what to say.

The apparent downside of winning the award is that the congratulatory handshaking over the course of the convention is an incredible vector of contagion. I've been a wiped-out mess of sore-throat, no energy, and congestion since Sunday evening. But if that's the price, man alive, I wouldn't have it any other way. Last Wednesday's Diana Jones evening is a night I'll never forget. The award is the greatest creative recognition I've ever received. Nothing else even comes close. I was so utterly humbled by the applause and all the personal congratulations afterwards. All I can say is thanks.

Paul

I'd also like to post my congrats and thanks again for the opportunity of letting me illustrate such a good game.  Maybe one day we can work together again.  I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.   Congrats. Again.

That is really awesome! You seem to take a very interesting, yet user-friendly, psychological approach to your games. Congratulations.

Colin,

Thanks. And likewise, totally. It was awesome working with you. You're the premier dude for synergy with art direction. And I am sorely tempted to shelve my fumbly sophomore efforts at game design, scour the Internet for some brilliant but innocent game designer, buy his magnum opus for pennies on the dollar, and hire you forthwith to do the artwork...
