2003 Nominees

Please note that there is a new "eligibility period" for games in the General Strategy category. 

In order for a game to be eligible for the General Strategy category, a game must have been released on or after July 1st of the previous year and no later than June 30th of the current year. This has been done so that finalists and recipients can be announced closer to the more common release dates by game publishers.

However, so as not to overlook the games that were released during the period of January 1st - June 30th of 2002, the committee awarded a special IGA for that time period. The games listed below were the finalists and the winner for that time period.
