Spiel Des Jahres & Kennerspiel Winners Announced!

July 17, 2017 by brennon

The winners for the Spiel des Jahres and Kennerspiel des Jahres 2017 have now been announced and the accolades went to Kingdomino and Exit: The Game!

Award Ceremony

Both games are very worthy winners of the prestigious awards. Having played both of these games I can say they really do hit the nail on the head for their respective categories.

Kingdomino

Kingdomino

Kingdomino is a fantastic kingdom builder without all of the frills. It manages to make simple tile placement and drafting mechanics work with plenty of tactical thinking behind your decisions. It’s a delightful puzzle to put together and well worth snapping up.

Exit The Game

EXIT: The Game

This series really does bring the Exit Room feel to the tabletop. Each set comes with puzzles you have to solve as a team and whilst I’ve only played The Abandoned Cabin the rest of the series promises to be a fantastic adventure to delve into.

With three sets already published and three more on the way, this looks like it’s going to be a great repeat performer.

Have you played either of these great games?
