Victory, and Other GenCon Stuff

It's a good weekend so far.

Last night, for those who haven't heard by other means, All Games Considered won the Gold ENnie Award for Best Podcast, and I got to make a very deer-in-headlights speech. We also congratulate the Silver winner, Order 66!

I also got to spend a little time with Carinn and Sean, and survey the exhibition hall. Today and tomorrow, it's demos, interviews, and a little shopping.

Thanks again to everyone who showed support and voted for us; we appreciate it more than you can imagine.

congratulations on the win!
AGC shows that consistency and determination triumph over all.

Aren't you guys the oldest still active gaming podcast around?

A laurel richly deserved by the entire AGC crew. Well done!

I've been listening to your show for the past 2 years and enjoy it each time. I had a good feeling that you would win the gold since you guys and gals are deserving of it.

Congratulations and keep up the good work!

Thanks again, everyone. :)

@zipdrive: At least on the RPG side, there's a good chance we are; I didn't find any when I was looking around back when we were preparing to start. There were a number of notable boardgaming casts out already, though, including such luminaries as The Dice Tower.

Thanks again all!

Sadly, as far as I know there is no recording of my speech, and that's probably just as well. I was a bit flustered, and forgot some people who were right there in the room (even with my rushed list written right before the ceremony, just in case). If someone does dig up a recording, though, please let me know. :)
