19 May Spiel des Jahres 2020 nominations are in!
Thames and Kosmos are thrilled to have been nominated for both Spiel des Jahres and Kennerspiel des Jahres 2020.
The Spiel des Jahres nomination is for My City, a family oriented legacy game by world reknown designer Reiner Knizia that has delighted new and experienced gamers alike. The game consists of 24 different episodes beginning with the development of a city in its early preindustrial stages and progressing through industrialisation. During each game, players customise their experience by adding elements to their own boards, altering cards or even in some cases, destroying them and removing them from play entirely! My City arrives in the UK in early July.
The Kennerspiel des Jahres is for The Crew – quest for planet nine, which as well as taking Essen games expo by storm last year grew from a sleeper hit to a must-have game over a matter of weeks. Thames and Kosmos UK sold out of the first English language printing in a matter of days. Now the Crew is back for its second outing and is available to buy from www.thamesandkosmos.co.uk and all good local, friendly board game shops!
Spiel des Jahres Winners will be announced on 20 July 2020. Fingers crossed!
