    Sometimes I don't want to play, but just see a beautiful game.
    Here are more than 6.000.000 games, but most are pub brawls of course.
    Ok, some of the brawls are quite nice, too ;-)
    There are a lot of categories, which could be there
    Beautiful sacs, thrilling end games, best defenses or even
    strange auto-aggressions.
    The challenge is to find and categorize those games.

    A cheap possibility would be not only to prize the winner of a tournament,
    but make a beauty competition for every tournament ( for example, after
    the tourney is over, every entrant can vote for games posted as candidate)

    But that is to short.
    How to raise the treasure of beautiful games here in rhp?
    Any ideas?

    The "tagging" part is easy. Either player could submit a game (tag it) for jurying.

    Those who are interested could vote. The "tag" could last some predetermined time, say 30, 60 or 90 days, before it disappears with no votes. The voters could tag it as a "yes" or a "no," or even better, labels like originally given, "Brilliancy," "Amazing Sneak Attack," "Miraculous Escape" etc.

    Seems like it should be easy and not require any admin time once it's up and running.

    The tagged status of the game could also be time limited. Let's say after a year, if no one else has bothered to tag it again, it goes away.

    Just some thoughts on a good idea.
