On Monday, July 8, the winners of the Spiel des Jahres (Game of the Year) and Kennerspiel des Jahres ("Expert" Game of the Year) awards will be announced at a ceremony in Germany. (Here are the three nominees for each award.)
Over at The Opinionated Gamers, I took part in a poll of writers to predict the winners. We picked Augustus (designed by Paolo Mori, published by Hurrican) to win the SdJ and Legends of Andor (Michael Menzel, Fantasy Flight Games) to win the KdJ. Meanwhile, a poll at BoardGameGeek.com predicts (as of this post, at least) that Hanabi (Antoine Bauza, Asmodée) will win the SdJ and Bruges (Stefan Feld, Z-Man Games) will win the KdJ.
So which games will win? Tune in Monday to find out!
