Subject Re: Groovy Champions proposal feedback - Groovy MVPs ?
Date Mon, 19 Feb 2018 19:32:06 GMT
Following the sports analogy, what about

"Groovy MVPs"

?

Any game can have Most Valuable Players (even if only one is typically 
crowned in the US), and I think "Groovy announced its 2018 MVPs" has a 
nice ring to it.

Cheers,
mg
