Four nominees for the 2019 Diana Jones Award for Excellence in Gaming have been announced — three games and a book.
- Dungeons & Dragons Art & Arcana, a book by Mike Witwer, Kyle Newman, Jon Peterson, and Sam Witwer, published by Ten Speed Press
- Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr, a board game by Michael Fox and Rory O’Connor, published by Hub Games
- The Mind, a card game by Wolfgang Warsch, published by NSV GmbH and Pandasaurus Games
- Star Crossed, a role-playing game by Alex Roberts, published by Bully Pulpit Games
The award is given to the person, product, company, event or any other thing that has, in the opinion of the Diana Jones committee, best demonstrated the quality of ‘excellence’ in the world of hobby-gaming in the previous year.
The winner will be named July 31, the night before the Gen Con games convention opens to the public.
