The idea of the “Golden GOAT” is that we choose the most popular game played by the group during the year. There is also a companion award acknowledging our least favourite game of the year, known as the “GOAT Poo” prize. The voting and award is made at the annual “Un-Christmas Dinner” and everyone who attends everyone has up to three points to hand out for the Golden GOAT Award (plus a bonus if wearing Festive Attire), and everyone can nominate up to two individual games for the GOAT Poo Prize. There is also the unofficial “Marmite Factor” award for a notable number of nominations for both the Golden GOAT and the GOAT Poo awards.
