SdJ

This game is pretty great. its a fun microfiller for me, but is that perfect for SdJ? I wish it came with another set of boards for a bit more longevity and value in box, and it benefits from small cups to pass the dinos in imho. but its pretty addictive immediately, and satisfying for what it is. another Bauza drafting game winner, but much much faster and lighter!

This one makes a lot of sense to me... it's a successor to Elfenland in many ways.

Nomination.
Great game with simple mechanics but a bit more game then Just One.
Outstanding box and art (good for the sales which the jury profits from as well).

Here’s an idea a bit out of left field. Accessible with lots of replayability.

For SdJ. This one caught my eye while reading the recent Spielbox magazine: the synopsis for the game from the International Toy Fair appears enthusiastic. Reviews on BGG also appear positive. It has 3D train and steamboat, giving it nice table presence. The gameplay appears family friendly.
