The 2018 Spiel des Jahres goes to…
The Spiel des Jahres award (Game of the Year, for you non-German speakers) is the Oscars of the board gaming community. This award, given every year, celebrates excellence in board game design. The main focus of the SdJ are family games, but special awards are also given to children’s games and “Connoisseur-Enthusiast” level games. This year’s winner – Azul by Michael Kiesling– is a beautiful tile-laying game where players compete for the finest tiles to make eye-catching patterns. You can find Azul and many other excellent games (including several past Spiel des Jahres winners!) in our board game collection. Need a game recommendation? Ask Matthew!
Also, please join us for Open Game Night every first Wednesday of the month from 6 – 8 PM. Learn a new game from our collection and make new friends!
