The next stage of judging is to double check all the scores I've given and readjust where necessary. Looking at the scores I'm sure my standards started to shift over time as my energy levels dropped, so I need to make sure they're all fair.
There's also the issue of picking the best two games as the winners, given there are only two prizes. While it might seem like it is a simple case of just adjusting the scores and seeing which game has the highest total to decide the winner, it's more a case of making sure the game you think is best gets the highest score. The tricky part is that I don't feel there is any one game that is a clear cut winner in this contest. In fact there are six games which I think would each make fine candidates for contest winner that currently have close scores that I have to decide between.
Since today is not a holiday, judging will have to wait until this evening, but I'll be attempting to finish off the judging then. I'll tackle the problem of picking a winner by a process of elimination; playing and analysing those six potential candidates and seeing which stands just a little bit higher than its competitors.
