I imagine this somewhat rough-looking box must be my long-awaited Cult of Games Community Award. It looks about like you might expect a box that’s travelled over 4500 miles from Northern Ireland to Oregon to look, but I do have to admit that seeing a box in this condition with a “fragile” sticker on it makes me a little nervous…

The frame and glass look to be in great shape, however...Thankfully, the award was packed pretty well, including a judicious amount of orange masking tape which may well have prevented a tragedy.

All kidding aside, I’m very proud to have won this on my first dive back into the project system after a long break. A huge thank you to Gerry, Ben and the rest of the crew for all the kind words, and to whoever put this magnificent award together. I will treasure it.
