GM Award Evaluation

Since judging is inevitably subjective, registrants are given the following general criteria for reference, and encouraged to see all events, and evaluate them based on:

Appearance: Impressive appealing figures, terrain, models, gaming tools and overall table layout.

Participation: Players are visibly enjoying the game, and all players asked respond enthusiastically.

Innovation: Unique methods, techniques or craftsmanship, GM showmanship and any other exceptional methods evident to produce a high quality event.

GM Effort: For a GM going 'above-and-beyond' to run many events, and/or large fun games or over a dozen gamers, informative/educational or multimedia efforts such as historical posters, flags, AV etc.
