In addition to the appreciation and acclaim, the Best of the Game Trade Awards endeavor to further strengthen the sense of community between retailers and Alliance Game Distributors; we could not do what we do without all of the incredible things you do, and the Best of the Game Trade Awards is our way of acknowledging and encouraging your hard work, innovation, and perseverance.
