It's interesting how little impact this award has compared to Germany's biggest award Spiel des Jahres. Regarding recent years, Deutscher Spielepreis trustworthy delivered what the established "Kennerspiel des Jahres" by SdJ jury was not capable of: that one best game with enough depth to not recommend it to any casual player. Contestable, but with a good sense due to its nature as an audience award. Here are this year's rankings - well in advance to the beginning of SPIEL 2017!

Shortlist for Kennerspiel des Jahres, but lost to Exit: The Game – The Abandoned Cabin which didn't even get considered for this Top 10.

2nd place

Merely appeared on the longlist for Kennerspiel des Jahres due to its heaviness.

3rd place

Was not considered for SdJ or Kennerspiel because of its late release, I guess?

5th place

Not mentioned for this year's SdJ/Kennerspiel and barely within BGG's Top 400, thus quite a surprise.
