Accolades for Matt Worden Games
Nothing is better for a game designer than to have someone like one of your games enough to give it some sort of public stamp of approval. This page will be a collection of official awards and other recognitions given to my games.
Cyrus Kirby is the owner/operator, editor in chief, and main board game reviewer at FatherGeek.com. He has reviewed a number of my games over the past couple of years and has found some worthy of his “Father Geek Approved” stamp:
- Jump Gate Review
- And while he really enjoyed Dicey Curves, it was the DANGER! Expansion that put the game over the top for him … Dicey Curves: DANAGER! Review
The Game Crafter
I publish a number of my games through publish-on-demand game company TheGameCrafter.com. The staff at the site tags a limited number of games with the “Staff Pick” label. So far, I has been honored to have one of my games given that label:
Toward the end of each year, GAMES Magazine publishes their “GAMES 100″ — a list of the best 100 game of the year. I have had two games honored by them so far:
- Jump Gate was GAMES Magazine’s 2011 Traditional Game of the Year
- Dicey Curves made the 2013 list as a nominee in the Family Games section
GAMA Origins Awards
Every year at the Origins game convention, a series of awards are given out. Space Mission was a 2011 nominee in the “Best Family, Party or Children’s Game” category. Dicey Curves made the shortlist in the same category.
