Who Are The Four Kings?


I know you are all eagerly awaiting the results of the voting (except for the 10 folks who didn't get around to submitting their votes). Actually it is a bit embarrassing. Three of the top four are Flying Buffalo folks: Me, Liz Danforth, and Ken St Andre. I don't mind honoring us, but I do want to honor some of the other game designers too. Well, I did say if any of the four winners declines the honor, I would take the next biggest vote getter. So, I think I will decline the honor this year (I'll accept it next year, assuming we get funded again). That means that our four kings for 2014 are Richard Berg, Tom Dalgliesh,  Liz Danforth, and Ken St Andre. 

Thanks for voting, and thanks for your support.

      It was long overdue, in my opinion. And hopefully we'll be able to get Steve or Bear Peters into the next set to join you. :-)

      You all deserve it, Rick. Never doubt that.

      I'm OK with this RIck - as long as your PROMISE you'll be a King on the next deck.
      Congratulations to Liz and Ken! Long live the Kings!

      Yes, we Buffalo Folk had a somewhat unfair advantage, since the notice of the kickstarter was initially sent to all our fans. But that just means that anyone wanting to get one of the other famous designers on the list needs to send next year's notice to all his or her fans! ;) Anyway, I honored 16 game designers previously without putting any of the Buffalo People on a card, so I guess it's about time.

      I suspect that the Deluxe T&T Kickstarter had a lot to do with the vote bias; I know it affected my voting, and I'm delighted to see Liz and Ken get in. Looking forward to getting these cards... and, of course, my dT&T stuff as well. :-)
