Spiel des Jahres

So, I said a while ago that I would try and reconcile all the Spiel des Jahres stuff onto one page – it’s proved trickier than I anticipated so this is a bit of a compromise but hopefully it’s better than nothing.

The plan is to play each of these games and score them to decide which we think is the best – the table below shows the full list and their overall score and who won it when we played and for ones we have played the game should link to the corresponding blog post.

We’re scoring out of a few categories (although these changed early on and there’s no real definition for the categories) but since I can’t fit the categories into a table which I can post, I’m going to go back and put a summary into each of the games we’ve played so far so if you do click on the link in the table you’ll see the full score breakdown.
