Hello everyone !

The golden super ace was awarded for the first time in February 1988 at the Cannes International Games Festival.

Super Gang is then the first game in a long series of award-winning games for 35 years now!

There were also prizes such as the golden aces of "imagination game", "friendship game", "adventure game", "letter game", "hope gold game", " interactive board game", "benjamin golden ace", "junior golden ace", "innovation", "dice game", "golden ace of the decade", "family game" and " pawn game” to name a few.

The evolutions of the various prizes awarded have followed the evolutions of the world of board games which became particularly rich in the 80s.

In the early 2000s, the prizes were refocused on a smaller number and the jury became even more professional.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

Since 1978 in Germany the prize for the game of the year, literally the Spiel des Jahres is awarded.

Each year the prizes are awarded by a jury of specialized journalists to the German and foreign prizes of the previous 12 months.

The notations are made on the idea, the originality, the rules, the playability, the presentation as well as the mechanics of the game.

Nominations announced in May and prizes announced in June.

The Spiel des Jahres awarded special prizes such as "best complex game", "best fantasy game", "best historical adaptation", "most beautiful game" and many more!

They ended up disappearing later in favor of the creation of other awards in the late 80s.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !


Sessho-seki Stone


The Sessho-seki stone, which according to Japanese legends “seals” the spirit of a vengeful demon from the outside world, has split in two.

According to Japanese mythology, the Sessho-seki stone, which is actually a large volcanic rock, had the power to instantly kill anyone who touched it.

In short, she is said to be the transmutation of the "demon" known as Tamamo-no-Mae.

According to legends, this demon was believed to have been a beautiful woman whose spirit was possessed by the nine-tailed fox, or kitsune, a spirit known for its tricks and traps.

Known for answering every question posed to her, Tamamo-no-Mae is said to have been part of a plot to seduce and kill Emperor Toba, who fell ill as a result of the plot.

The fox spirit was then exposed and hunted down by two mythological warriors, and then incorporated the Sessho-seki stone as a final obstacle, releasing poisonous gas.

The evil eye


The evil eye is a belief that a look, praise or compliment from one person to another has the power to bring a curse or bad luck to the latter.

The "murderous gaze", capable of attracting misfortune, illness or death, appears in the texts of Sumer, Babylon and Assyria.

In Europe during the Middle Ages, witches were known to use the evil eye against anyone who had the misfortune to cross their path.

Their victims were then stricken with various ailments, lost the love of their spouse or were thrown into misery.

In this belief, witches – being associated with the image of old women – would be linked to menopause.

Since witches could no longer see their age expelling their "impurities" through natural channels, they did so through their eyes.

Good day and good game ;)

Hello everyone !

An Italian knight is said to have stuck his sword in a rock in the 12th century.


Today, the sword can still be seen in Tuscany, but is it real? And was that the inspiration for Excalibur and the King Arthur saga?

The town of San Galgano bears the name of its knight, Galgano Guidotti, who lived there as a hermit during the last year of his life.

The story goes that his horse would take no orders from him and when he finally got on his horse he galloped straight to the top of Montesiepi.

Upon arriving in town, he stuck his sword he had used as a knight into a large stone up to the hilt as a symbol of ending his life as a knight.

The sword was actually deemed a fake, with some critics doubting its authenticity.

However, more recent studies from the University of Pavia have proven that the style, shape and material actually date back to the 12th century, between 1100 and 1200.

Good day and good game ;)
