You should make an honest attempt to play as many of the entries as you can before you vote. However, you are not required to play all of them. A ballot consists of all the games you have tried, ranked from best to worst.
New: There are now two ways to vote. You can submit a ballot using the voting web form. Or, vote by email: send your ballot list to the vote-collecting address. (firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Please try to make your ballot easy for me to read: just the game names, one per line, from best to worst. I will reply to acknowledge your vote when I process it. I'll try to process incoming votes at least once a day.
Ballots must arrive at the voting address by October 10th, 2005. (11:59 pm Central). If you submit more than one ballot, only the latest one (received by me) will be counted. Earlier ballots will be discarded.
"What criteria should I judge the entries on?"
Which ones you think are best.
