200-Word RPG Challenge Finalists

Finalists have been selected in the 200-word RPG Challenge! I and my fellow judges worked through over 220 entries to weed out 33 of them. Reading and voting continues this week, and winners will be announced on or around the 18th.

The range of content in the original set of entries was so broad, it's a testament to the creativity of the rpg community. It is of note that there were 8 judges and 33 finalists. While one might have expected there to be a very small set of clear front-runners by this time, instead it turns out that we overlapped by only about 20% with any other judge. In other words, 4 out of 5 of my picks for finalist weren't on anybody else's list - and the same is true for all the other judges, on average. It's a wide, wide world.

Go check these games out. You're bound to find at least a few that will be perfect for your gaming group - no matter what your tastes are.
