The Spiel des Jahres

Spiel des Jahres
"The Spiel des Jahres (German for Game of the Year) is arguably the most
prestigious board game award for German-style board games.
The award was created in the late 1970s to reward excellence in game design, and
to promote top-quality games in the German market. It is thought that the
existence and popularity of the award is one of the major drivers of the quality
of games coming out of Germany.
The award is given by a jury, which reviews games released in Germany in the
preceding twelve months."
