About the Figgies
Every year, we host an awards ceremony after the exhibit halls close. In this awards ceremony, we recognize the excellent games in our Tabletop and Digital Showcases. We give away trophies and prizes for a number of categories, selected by our curation teams, as well as an Audience Choice and Best in Show award.
Digital Categories: Best in Show, Compelling Game Mechanics, Innovation in Art and Narrative, Multiplayer and Connected Gameplay, Experimental Game Design, Student Games, and Audience Choice Award
Tabletop Categories: Best in Show, Most Dynamic, Most Innovative, Best Game for Social Change, Best Family Game, Best Game in Progress, and Audience Choice Award
