A neck and neck competition, but in the end, Tommy4Ever took home the 2013 CrusAARs Chalice for his superb AAR! Congratulations!

By a mere two votes did Philo32b's AAR fall short, and there is no shame in that. I personally find it fascinating that CKII, a game ostensibly about European crusaders, produced two outstanding AARs about Africa.
