• Appearance: Impressive & appealing figures, terrain, models, gaming tools and overall table layout. 

• Participation: Players are visibly enjoying the game, and all players asked respond enthusiastically. 

• Innovation: Unique methods, techniques or craftsmanship, GM showmanship and any other exceptional methods evident to produce a high quality event.

• GM Effort: For a GM going "above-and-beyond" to run many events, and/or large fun games or over a dozen gamers, informative/educational or multimedia efforts such as historical posters, flags, AV etc.
