I couldn't see that this had been posted yet. Apologies if it has and I've missed it.

Here's a link to the nomination site (In German)

http://www.spiel-des-jahres.org/cms/front_content.php?idcata...

But in short the nominations are:
Der Dieb von Bagdad
Zooloretto
Jenseits von Theben
Die Baumeister von Arkadia
Yspahan

Only “recommended” (empfohlen) were Notre Dame, Saulen von Erde (Pillars of the Earth) and Alchemist.

I don’t know where the smart money lies with those… ???

Zooloretto ?

Dieb von Bagdad – not quite good enough, and only plays 4
Jenseits von Theben – too long ?
Baumesiter Von Arkadia – Do Ravensburger ever win ?
Yspahan – not one I’ve played, but will the jury give it to a French game in a spirit of Euro co-operation ?

I was looking for a forum (news ?) item, rather than a Geeklist...

Pfffft. Who reads forums (not fora)? Geek Lists are the only true news.

Actually, Ravensburger has won more SdJs (6) than any other publisher. However, 4 of those were during the first 8 years of the awards (from 1979-1986). They won back to back in '99 and '00 for Tikal and Torres, but haven't won since. Abacus (Zooloretto), on the other hand, has never won.
