player's choice awards
This is our 3rd year running the "Player's Choice Awards" category in our Bullseye Awards. This category was created to allow the players to vote for their favorite games worldwide! This category is totally separate from our internal "Bullseye Award" which is given by our reviewers of the games that they've actually played this year. This year we had 5 categories in the Player's Choice Awards: "Game Master of the Year", "employee of the year", "creative video of the year", "top 3 at-home games", and "top 3 In-Person Escape Rooms". The winners were for the "at-home games" and "in-person escape rooms" were given Gold, Silver and Bronze titles.
