Spiel der kleinen Herzen: an yearly award by the Italian gaming club Dinx
The «Spiel der Herzen» («Game of the Heart») and the «Spiel der kleinen Herzen» («Game of the Little Heart») are two nominal awards by the Italian gaming club Dinx: since 2009 both prizes are given the best games published within the last three years according to the club’s members and sympathizers.Recommend
Every year, when fall comes, hundreds of club’s members and sympathizers are asked to voice the three games they like the most among the most recently published ones: a list is then written out and the most voted games are nominated for the final round, when a panel of experts chooses that year’s «Spiel der (kleinen) Herzen».
Starting 2012 the «Spiel der kleinen Herzen» has been bestowed by kids attending the lower schools the club's been working with for the last year: they were given a huge selection of games to play with all the fall long and then express their preferences.
A geeklist is made for each year’s awarded games (the top three): this geeklist collects all of those geeklists for a quick overview.
The Geeklist for the «Spiel der Herzen» award is here.
