GenCon 50 wins the Diana Jones Award

In a move that surprised no one, The Diana Jones Award was given to GenCon for it’s 50th anniversary.  The Diana Jones award is given out each year for excellence in gaming, and this award can be given to games, conventions, designers, or companies depending on their contributions to the hobby.  Last year saw the award go to Eric Lang for the many excellent games he has designed, and previous years have been awarded to BoardGameGeek.com and even the Youtube show Tabletop.  And while the award going to GenCon is not shocking, it did have some solid competition from Terraforming Mars, Gloomhaven, The Romance Trilogy, End of the Line, and The Beast.  But having 50 years of serving gamers the latest and greatest while growing to being the largest board game convention in the world (maybe), GenCon deserved the win.  You can read more about the award and the other nominees on the Diana Jones website.
