Readers Choice Awards: 2016 AAR of the Year Nominations
« on: February 11, 2016, 02:38:20 PM »
Getcher nominations in for AAR of the year!

Tentative rule:  must have at least 5 updates/episodes/posts in the year for which it is nominated

What do you guys think?

@Brant
Yes, I think there has to be some continuity. 5 posts/updates is fair, and not a very high bar to pass. I'll contradict myself now: Does it really matter if there are only say 3 or 4 updates if the AAR is outstanding?

FWIW, I've only read a few AAR's so far this year, so my opinion is based on very limited experience.

One of my favourites is the Barbarossa one between Barthheart and Jason Pratt. Both threads are very well written, with a good sense of humour. So far both are highly entertaining in my opinion. O0

I am going to preemptively nominate Airborne Rifles for his CMANO AARs.

I will second AR's CMANO AAR's.  KyzBP and 'geek's WitPAE AAR is good, too.
Come inside and vote on the latest music bracket!  Going to attempt to come up with one song to rule them all from 1960 to 1999.  Next up:

Wait, will there be two categories, one for digital AARs and one for tabletop AARs?

Oh hell. This was my idea and now I'm torn between the AAR's already mentioned here. But I gotta stick with my original pick, the WitP AE AAR of Geek and KyzBP. It's not only entertaining but informative and they've both been great at answering dumb questions asked by us. It takes so long to play this game that it could also qualify as last year's and next year's AAR too.  O0

KyzBP's is the most engaging for me.

My criteria is engagement, ease of reading, frequency updates.
