One of our customers, Kelly from Michigan, has told us of the numerous prizes she uses when she hosts our games. Except where noted, the awards are voted on by the players themselves and tallied at the end of the game.
“We usually try to get all the ballots in by mid-game, but since few obey, we accept them until we have votes tallied. You guys are right, it is a great way to wrap of the evening. People enjoy getting them, and the cost is minimal.”
Kelly does vary the awards depending on the games, but these are the awards that she told us about.
Best Dressed (“We used do best male and best female – now we are gender neutral and do the top three.”)
Best Acting (“Again we use do best male and best female, but we are gender neutral and do the top three.”)
Random Award (The person who added something to make the night more fun.)
Most Outrageous Player
Too nice to be a killer
Biggest Ham (Chosen by the photographer who they thought was the most fun when taking pictures.)
Biggest Badass (Used in A Speakeasy Murder.)
Best Dancer (“During Lei’d to Rest we had a mid-game hula contest.”)
Staff Awards: The party hosts chose winners for these two. You can use the most number of nominations from the other players across the other awards, or player who got the most points (see Keeping Score), or any other method you want.
Best in Show!
