ARE YOU READY TO RUUUUUUMBLE?
If you’re new to the Geek-A-Long, you might not know that usually Megan-Anne and I make a long list of our favorite fandoms and then bicker amongst ourselves until we get the number down to 48. Sometimes we’d let friends and family settle our resulting blood feuds, but this year we’re doing things a bit different. Megan-Anne, Alena, and I picked out our top 40 video games and now it’s up to you to fill in the last eight slots!
Here’s how this works:
- Go to the Geek-A-Long Ravelry group to nominate or vote for your favorite video games.
- If your fandom wins, we’ll give you bragging rights by quoting you when we release the square.
- Inevitably, you will nominate and vote for video games that we already picked. We will quote some of these nomainations as well, but we recommend that you go for your beloved and maybe more obscure favorites.
- Voting ends December 26, 2015.
- Vote often and have fun!
