The nominations for the Dutch Games Prize 2020 have been announced, it was released today in Dutch via the organization’s website. As of this year, the prize is divided into three categories: the Dutch Games Prize – Family, the Dutch Games Prize – Connoisseur and the Dutch Games Prize – Experts. A family game is certainly suitable for a large audience, including children from the age of eight. A connoisseur game is suitable for an audience from about ten years old who appreciates a game of one and a half hours with some more rules, whereby the game can be explained in fifteen minutes. An expert game is suitable for players with a little more playing experience.
