How The Trickies works
How were the items picked?
Our judges were given four categories and asked to pick their favorite eight releases in each category from 2015. We then took the top voted items in each category so that public voting could begin.
The Trickies went live December 4th. What about the rest of the year?
Don't worry, dear astute reader: they'll be included in next year's Trickies.
How were the judges selected?
We picked judges from five different magic producers in order to remove any bias. Each year we will select a new judging panel.
What if I disagree with these picks?
The very nature of something like The Trickies is that it's quite possible that your favorite product isn't listed. But you can suggest your own item for each category and if that item gets more than ten votes, we'll add it to the main page.
How often can I vote?
You can only vote once per category. If you vote a second time, your previous vote will be overridden.
When will the winners be announced?
We'll announce the winners on January 2nd 2016. We'll probably all still be hung over from New Year's Day, but that's part of the fun.
Who produced The Trickies?
The idea was conceived by the Vanishing Inc. team as a fun way to end the year. But we selected a wide range of judges to keep things impartial. If our products appear as part of the awards (and we hope they do!), they have been selected by the judges and not us.
