Why? Who would choose who a "respected EAB member" is anyway?
The game making is open to everyone for making games to be playable by everyone so why wouldn't everyone get the chance to then vote on the games they play?
An open democracy is surely the fairest voting system.

I agree. I also agree with Cammy that maintaining momentum is important.
I initially thought this might be too short a timeframe for making a game by coding it from scratch but I think hitchhikr is correct - it's enough time to get a level together at least and then something promising could always be taken further separately.
