It's getting close, and the fantastic Logos keep coming in!
Thank you everyone for such an awesome job.  Seriously they are all amazing.

 The Voting Process Explained

Everyone might be interested in how the judging is going to work.

I'll be selecting a secret panel, who cannot enter the competition.

The panel will consist of JIGG members from around Japan (not in the competition). Please don't try to scope out the judges I want this to be as fair as possible. The judging team will also include our fantastic!! founding members & a secret .

3-4 founders
3 from Tokyo
3 from Kansai

The judges will Rank their top 5 choices.  Each rank has it's own points score. 
1. 5 points
2. 4 points
3. 3 points
4. 2 points
5. 1 point

We will collate that and the Top 5 choices out of that, will be put to a public Vote.  The reason being, is that I'd like everyone's input on the final logo, because you all have a voice and have helped make JIGG AMAZING. The public Vote will be announced later.  If there is a tie, we may see more than a Top 5.  So the prize may be delayed a little while we do the voting.  But have no fear, the winner will get a AWESOME BOX of games and see their Logo represent our great guild :)

Please check the entries on this blog to make sure that logo is the one you want in the entry.

Thanks guys for getting so involved.  I'm so glad to be part of JIGG :)

Lots of great Logos are coming in, but don't leave it to the last minute, give the judges and everyone some time to admire your work :)
So come on everyone :) Get on your creative flair.

Since I don't want to duplicate games that someone already has, I'm working on a points system, that way the winner can get games he/she does not have.

The winner will have 10 points to spend on games under the following categories. Pending - on availability of these games when requested.
The contest will end on Feb 29th then the judges will choose the winner (which may take a week or 2 depending on when the final entries arrive). Then the winner will be announced and he/she can go points shopping, and it will take around 3 weeks or so to get the games in.  Look at all these HOT games!!

5 points
Galaxy Trucker
Risk Legacy
Ora et Labora

4 points
Dungeon Petz
Dungeon Quest
Nexus Ops
The Road to Canterbury
Space Maze

3 points
7 Wonders
Small World
BattleCON: War of Indines
Panic Station

Mr. Jack in New York
Power Grid: The First Sparks

I'll add more to the list when I find the games :)
