Hm, looking at the Best Free Game category shows clearly how many people can vote, which is interesting.

Also, congrats to all the participants and winners! I will have to look at some of those games I haven't heard of before.

Well, 108 points doesn't mean there are 108 voters. I've added in a note explaining about the point system.

This year the voting was particularly spread out. Despite the fact that we had 38 peers voting (which is slightly above average turnout), the winner this year was by the fewest points thus far in the awards. The top Game of the Year awards since the awards were started have been:

2002: Dust Devils with 28 points
2003: My Life With Master with 92 points
2004: Dogs in the Vineyard with 101 points
2005: Polaris with 55 points
2006: Spirit of the Century with 51 points
2007: Grey Ranks with 52 points
2008: Mouse Guard with 49 points
2009: Kagematsu with 27 points

In Dallas, the crime of driving while lifted up (DWI) is seen harshly . This is why citizenries engage an aggressive Dallas DWI attorney to help protect and keep their rights if they are held for DWI.

Peoples who face DWI charges must ensure that their lawyer handles the civil case skilfully to better fight the felonious case.

In the state of Texas, if a person suspected of DWI rejects to undergo a chemical test or cuts through the legal Blood Alcohol Content doorway of 0.08 %, his or her license may be suspended. The person must call for an ALR hearing within 15 days of the stoppage to avoid automatic suspension of his or her driver 's license .
