Spiel: Just One, LAMA, Werewords

Kennerspiel: Carpe Diem, Detective, Wingspan


Thoughts? Predictions? Opinions? Are we done caring about the seal of marketing?

My money's on Just One and Wingspan taking it. Kudos to Knizia for a rainbow-coated addition to his ludicrous list of achievements but I'll be shocked if a cards and numbers game wins. Kennerspiel-wise...look, I have no idea how they even grade this category at this point.

Just One and Werewords are great games. I'd give it to Werewords slightly but Just One is not far behind.

I also think Detective is the best of the Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detectives type games. That third case was one of the best gaming experiences I had last year.

I haven't played Detective so I can't say how it stacks up, but it seems really difficult to rank it against a old-school-ish euro and plain-but-pretty tableau builder. Definitely the most ambitious of the 3 though.

That award doesn't seem to really concern itself with the kinds of games I like, so I have never paid it any mind.

I've only played werewords and Carpe Diem. I didn't like werewords much, so I guess I hope Knizia wins there? Carpe Diem is really really good, but I don't see it winning over the Extinction level event hype of Wingspan.
