GMT Games tweeted the news, with the additional information that of over 300 games they have published, fewer than a dozen have been nominated for an IGA. Only one has ever won, and that one was Twilight Struggle.

However, one of the other nominations, and the next most wargamelike, is 13 Days: the Cuban Missile Crisis, so that one’s going to win for sure. That one, or Fog of Love, which also looks quite interesting.

But it’s nice to be named.

[EDIT: the winner was Codenames Duet, some kind of guessing game.]
