Thank you for all your valuable thoughts, guys.
Some things you could find interesting: The judges come from all over the world, one from Canada, one from USA, one from Australia and 5 from Germany (interestingly 4 from the ABBUC board and me). We play as much games as possible on real hardware. Therefore 4 of the german judges met in reality (obscure in corona times?!) and playtested nine hours in a row on real hardware (Atari, Spectrum, C64, C128) and some more on emulator. We discussed every game we tested and took a look at the documents. Myself read ALL documents and played all games intensely. 3 other judges played also all games and rated them. But for every entry we calculate an average rating. So it isn't that important that every judge rates everything.
But it is right. The contest is reaching its limits. It is likely that it will not be possible to honor every program the way it deserves. We are thinking about your suggestions.
