The Jury is in session. So are we!
The Spiel des Jahres is Germany's Game of the Year. It's an award for the best family game. And it is the most prestigious award in the board game world, spawning satellite awards for kid's games (Kinderspiel) and strategy games (Kennerspiel).
Over the next four episodes, we will review games nominated for the Kinder, Kenner and Spiel des Jahres, see how they stack up against the jury's criteria, and try to predict the winners.
Part 1 of our Spiel des Jahres coverage includes reviews of two nominated games, Machi Koro and Colt Express, plus a look at the recommended games list.
Spiel des Jahres Nominees: Machi Koro, Colt Express, The Game
Recommended Games List: One Night Ultimate Werewolf, Cacao, Loony Quest, Ugo, Patchwork, Simsala Boom
