Spiel Des Jahres – 2013 nominations

23 May

The nominations for the prestigious German board games award, Spiel Des Jahres, were announced this week.

Games like The Settlers of Catan, El Grande, Carcassone and Ticket to Ride are some of the previous years’ winners. It’s a big thing in the board game industry.

This year, i’m happy to note that out of the 3 nominations i’ve played 2 of them.

Hanabi and Qwixx. Both were well received by gamers and non-gamers alike when we played them. Hanabi is more of an experience game whereas Qwixx is a more easy going, party even game. Out of the two, my pick would be Hanabi although the audience is somewhat narrower compared to Qwixx. I don’t know much about Augustus.

Augustus Paolo Mori Hurrican Nominee
Hanabi Antoine Bauza Asmodée Éditions Nominee
Qwixx Steffan Benndorf GameFactory Nominee
