Major board gaming awards are now recognizing the best 'Zoomable' games

The 15th annual Golden Geek Awards were announced on Sunday, and they include an entirely new category for tabletop games you can play on a video conference, such as Zoom, Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams. It's further evidence that the ongoing global pandemic is changing the way we play, and that will undoubtedly feed back into how games are made going forward.

The Golden Geeks are organized each year by the community at Board Game Geek, perhaps the largest collection of tabletop fans in the world. This list of awards was very different than previous years, especially since there was no single winner for Board Game of the Year. Instead, the decision was made to break that honor up into three different categories -- Light, Medium, and Heavy. It's a move mirrored by The American Tabletop Awards. We've included a list of all the winners below.

But the biggest change by far was the addition of the Zoomable Game category. The winner was Forgotten Waters, a game designed by Isaac Vega, J. Arthur Ellis, and Mr. Bistro. It was published by Plaid Hat Games, and is closely related to another of that company's award winning games called Dead of Winter.
