This Saturday: 2022 Golden Lock Awards

It’s almost time for the 2022 Golden Lock Awards!

This year the REA team has traveled extensively… and largely to regions we haven’t covered before. We’re so excited to tell you about some phenomenal games, many of which you may not be familiar with.

The awards feature REA writers: Andrew Reynolds, Brett Kuehner, Joel Smileypeacefun, Kate Wastl, Matthew Stein, Peih-Gee Law, Richard Burns, Sarah Mendez, Theresa Wagner, and Lisa & David.

Many other writers contributed to determining the winners and articulating the brilliance in these games.

And the final production is edited by REPOD editor Steve Ewing.

This was a group effort and we think you’ll love the result.
