Well, December is already here, fellow Goodjers! That means 2019 is just around the corner, and it's now time for the 2018 Community Game of the Year thread. This will be my second year picking up after all the hard work ClockworkHouse put in. I have little doubt that this year will be as exciting and amazing as it was last year. Reading your lists and seeing what diverse games we all play never ceases to amaze me.
I'm sure most of you know the drill by now, but before you all start posting your lists, quick rundown on how this works. Each year, GWJ community members vote for their favorite games of the year. Since we're all busy and can't always keep up with new releases, we're opening it up to all games you played for the first time in 2018. Doesn't matter if it's one year, five years, ten years, or twenty-five years old, what matters is that it's new to you. If you change your list, don't edit your post, make a new one and tell me you've changed your mind.
Polls are closing on Saturday, January 5th, 2019, 9am GMT+1 (that's 3am EST, Jan 4th midnight PST).
Complete guidelines in Q&A form in the post below, and final results will be posted here (perhaps even on the Front Page!).
Edit: results are now live!
