You might want to fix the title it's Kennerspiel des Jahres.

I'm also happy it won. It was the only one of the three nominees I like.

co-op games are not strategy games. Sad. The SDJ sinks even further.

Have you played this one? To me, a co-op I like is a rare thing - for Andor, it's mostly the fact that it is the perfect blend of accessibility, theme and complexity that puts it next to a select few others in that regard.

It does certainly require strategy, so I'm uncertain what you mean by "not strategy games".

Hopefully this will mean that FFG publishes these expansions in English, too...

Congrats to Michael Menzel. It was my choice out of the 3.

Hmmm, co-op games aren't games in which you get to plan to screw over other players and/or stomp them in a quest for supreme victory, this is true, but many co-op games DO require strategy.

And then there is Elder Sign, which is kind of like a slot machine in board game form. There are some less than stellar co-ops out there. There are also some less than stellar "strategy" games out there.

It's always best to judge a game on its own merits, and in this case, I think the judges did exactly that!
