The Dice Tower Awards has been around since 2007 and is comprised, presently, of a panel of over 50 people in the board game industry.  Ironically, Tom Vasel (owner of The Dice Tower) only provides tie-breaking votes.  "It's important to me that people realize this is not about me.  The purpose of these awards are to recognize the best-of-the-best as seen by those in the industry - publishers, designers, and other podcasters/reviewers" There will be a podcast and video released tomorrow (Tuesday 7/7/2014) that will be focused on the awards.  You can visit The Dice Tower for more information. Tom had the following to say:  "In a year filled with so many good games that voting was surprisingly tough, we are happy to present a slate of unique, entertaining games that will appeal to gamers everywhere!"
