It is official, the Spiel Des Jahres 2020 winner, and other subcategories, have been announced. On the morning of Monday, July 20, 2020 the Spiel des Jahres winners have been revealed. According to the organization, “The wide range of games is impressive once again”. This is an english translation of what was originally in German.

*Game of the Year

Kinderspiel des Jahres – Speedy Roll – Urtis Šulinskas

The material sets in “Pictures” initially appear to be almost randomly thrown together, but in reality, they are chosen wisely: each set challenges the players in a different way, so the incentive to experiment is enormous. The results are often astonishing, which is why the guessing sessions quickly resemble visiting art exhibitions: with great aha moments and amusing attempts to justify the misunderstood artist genius. Great creativity with the simplest.
