Spiel des Jahres Nominations for 2022: Cascadia, Scout, and Top Ten | BoardGameGeek News | BoardGameGeek

I have no idea about Top Ten. I’d like Scout to win the normal one - I think Cascadia has a good shout though but I think it’d be the super safety choice.

Of the non nominated recommends I really want to try Khora,

Since some of these were published before 2022, do they appear here because they were released in Germany in 2022?

Yeah, the qualifying year is the year a game gets it’s German language edition published. Maybe that’s the only criteria for inclusion, I can’t remember if other stuff affects but I think it’s just that.

Yeah I think this is correct. It’s based on the previous year and released in German. I think with Cryptid they were right to take their time and get the translations right.

Two nominations for Wolfgang Warsch in the kids section is good to see, enjoy his games a lot. Look forward to his next big box game.

Interestingly, in 2018 Wolfgang Warsch got two nominations for both of the parent games.

It’s mind boggling the same man made The Mind - basically as close to an abstract activity you can get while still being a game - Ganz Shon Clever - the most naked distilation of euro combo games and Quacks - some weird silliness!
