      I know you said "by email to you". and that's probably fairer without
      introducing bias, but I don't think the difference is great, and
      thought this might help kick things off ...

      Up to 5 nominations per category ...

      Game of Year:
      Struggle of Empires
      Team RoboRally

      Best New Game (not sure which WERE published in 2007 ...)

      Best Game Mechanic:
      1. Perikles' nomination and election phase.
      2. Perikles' statue-points, which your choice of which cities to
      attack and which to leave alone, for the rest of the game.
      3. Perikles' 2-phase combat mechanic, with the result from the first
      giving you a head-start on the second phase.
      4. Perikles' mechanic of only the LEAD attacker or defender getting
      the VP's for the battle, so a race to get yourself down as the LEAD
      attacker or defender for the upcoming battles.
      5. Oh, and Imperial's Rondel!

      Best Filler:
      Cash 'n' Guns
      Team RoboRally

      These are only nominations for consideration. I look forward to the
      voting. A fun thing to do, thanks Neil!
