Spiel des Jahres Winners – 2020

The 2020 winner of the coveted German Game of the Year or Spiel des Jahres award has been announced as Pictures.  This is a family game where players have to model the picture on their card using the available components, e.g. shoelaces, coloured cubes, etc.; players get points for correctly guessing other players images and for other players guessing their image.

The Kennerspiel des Jahres was awarded at the same time.  This honours more challenging games and this year was awarded to The Crew: The Quest for Planet Nine.  This is a co-operative trick-taking game, where the players are astronauts on an uncertain space adventure.  The Kinderspiel des Jahres award was announced last month and went to Speedy Roll (aka Hedgehog Roll) a game where players which players roll a Velcro ball to pick up goodies that help the move their hedgehogs through the forest, cooperatively or in competition.  Congratulations to all the winners and nominees.
