Nominees

The Game Manufacturers Association (GAMA) announces the 33rd Annual Origins Awards Nominees. The nominated products are social games and their accessories and expansions.

The Nominees are determined through a jury of experts selecting the top ten entries from each category and presenting that list to the retail store attendees at GAMA’s trade show held in the spring. Those retailers pick their top five and those products are awarded the silver award for the year.

This list will be presented to the attendees of the Origins International Game Expo (Origins) in Columbus, OH (July 5-8, 2007) for their votes on the top products in each category. The winners will be announced at a ceremony on Saturday night of the convention and will receive the gold award of being named the product of the year in their category.

Please see http://www.originsgames.com/aagad for more information on the awards and http://www.originsgames.com/ for more information on Origins.
