High stakes, higher strategy? The Kennerspiel des Jahres is given to the best advanced board game of the year. The nominees this year take us to Belgium, the marble pits of Italy, and a fantasy realm in need of heroes. We review Bruges, Palaces of Carrara, and Legends of Andor and try to predict this year's winner. In addition, we report back with our experiences from Origins 2013.
Kinderpiel des Jahres Nominees: Palaces of Carrara, Bruges, Legends of Andor
Recommended List: Terra Mystica, Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar
Origins 2013: Convention report on over 20 different titles!

I'm sure there are some goofs in there somewhere. Let us know if (when?) you find one!
In the Bruges review: there are 5 canal spaces on each section, not 6.
In the Legends of Andor review: you decide how you want to split the reward for killing monsters - willpower/gold.
