Just as month one of Q3 winds to an end, we're ready to vote on our Q2 award winners! If you're new, check out the original announcement on the quarterly polls to learn more about what sets are eligible for voting, as well as more information about end-of-year awards.
There are currently three polls up. Note that you can vote for multiple options in each poll (including your own, if you're nominated)
Best Set of 2018 Q2: This award goes to the best set overall. The best combination of mechanics, design, playability, flavor, and everything else that makes a set good. Best Creative Design of 2018 Q2: This award goes to the set with the best creative design-- flavor, worldbuilding, art selection, story, and characterization. Best Card of 2018 Q2: This award goes to the best card to win the Card of the Week Contest.
At the end of the year, there'll be a wildcard poll, where the runners-up for each quarter's polls will duke it out for the fifth and final slot in the final polls. The winners of those polls will be the Best Set, Creative, and Card of 2018. Their creators will get nice badges, and the former two will get their own pages on the Featured Sets tab (eventually), which we've slightly retooled.

The polls have closed for Q2, and we're happy to announce our winners:
High Noon: Reloaded and Tales of Old Jiangshi take home the gold in a tie for Best Set of Q2 2018! Congratulations, Cajun and Timespiraled!
Ghariv: the Sacred City and High Noon: Reloaded snag the win in a tie for Best Creative Design of Q2 2018! Congratulations, CanterburyEgg and Cajun once again!
Explore the Unknown and Wyn the Warweaver take first place in a tie for Best Card of Q2 2018! Congratulations, Daij_Djan and ShiftyHomunculus!
With three ties across the categories, my gut instinct is to leave the runners-up out of the redemption poll at the end of the year. If anyone strongly objects to that, let me know here! Big congrats to everyone who won once again, and I'll see you in a couple months for Q3 awards!
