Board Game: Ghost Fightin' Treasure Hunters
Geister, Geister, Schatzsuchmeister!, one of two family Eurogames released by designer Brian Yu and publisher Mattel at Spiel 2013, has won Kinderspiel des Jahres 2014, as announced on Monday, June 23, 2014. In a statement accompanying the announcement, the KSdJ jury notes that "Yu creates a ghostly atmosphere that inevitably draws you into the game... At the same time, the game bridges the gap between generations. Thanks to the variations that can be introduced gradually, the challenges continue to grow — and with them the player."

Here's hoping for more such releases from Yu and Mattel in the future!
