Hi All,

Thank you all for your help, and for all the awesome Logo Entries.
It was a tough choice for all of us I'm sure, as they all looked wonderful.

I asked all JIGG members from all regions to submit their votes, and allowed for 1 week for submission.  (and reminded them again and again :) )  From all the votes we received, we also received lots of great feedback and comments.

* We'll definitely include what JIGG stands for in English & Japanese on printed material with the logo.  (but wanted to the Logo to also be able to stand by itself.  In the future it might be as recognizable as the Nike/Adidas logo, or an Acronym as ATM, that you recognise straight away :) )

Without further ado (I know the suspense is intense....)
I'd like to announce our winner!!!

The winner!!! is DC
with his entry v04 : Meepling!

I'll be contacting DC via email about his wonderful win.

Thank you everyone.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

I'll try run another competition later on in the year :)

Thank you to all the entrants and judges for their hard work.  The Logos submitted were awesome.   It was a really tough choice for the judges to choose their top 5.

Out of 7 judges, here are the Judges Total Top 5 picks.
(Each judge voted on a ranking scale which had a score, the final points were tallied and the Top 5 is what you see here.  It was an extremely tough choice as all the entries were really good.)Top 1: Entry

Top 1: 6 v08 - Score: 15

Top 2: Entry 6 v04 - Score: 14

Top 3: Entry 1 - Score: 13

Top 4: Entry 4E - Score: 11

Top 5: Entry 8a - Score: 9

Now it's time for you to vote!

You can choose to agree with the judges top choice (if you do, please still vote for that Logo), or choose another one you like.  Here are somethings to think about before making your choice.  Remember:   this Logo is to be used on Meishi cards, flyers, T-shirts, other media. 

  • All JIGG gamers (incl. new members) may Vote.  (please vote :) )
  • You may only vote ONCE.
  • You may only vote for 1 logo.
  • Email your votes in before Friday, Mar 9th : midnight.  (Since not every JIGG member is on BGG, I'll be collecting the votes via email & BGG Geekmail)
  • Mail them to jiggtokyo (at mark)  and include your name & JIGG area (I will crosscheck the names to ensure there's no double voting)
                  Subject: JIGG Logo Top 5 Vote
                            e.g. I vote for Top 3!
                                   Bob Smith  (JIGG Tokyo & Kanagawa)

Some things maybe to think about when voting.  The logo you are choosing
- represents JIGG as a whole
- looks cool & modern & stands out (they all do!!)
- will look good on a flyer
- will look good on a Meishi
- will look good on a t-shirt

If you have any questions please mail jiggtokyo (at mark)

In case of a tie - the judges decision will be final
In case of bribes & petitioning - the judges decision will be final
