Hello everyone !
The Cannes International Games Festival is fast approaching and we can't wait to be there :)
We can't wait for the 2022 game selection to see who will succeed the 2021 Ace of Gold, Micro Macro!
Who will be the successors of Dragomino for the children category and of The Crew for the expert category?
Until we get there, here is an explanation of what the Golden Ace is and the award-winning categories.
Since 1988, the festival's jury, made up of journalists and professionals, has awarded the Ace of Gold - Game of the Year label, which rewards the best games published during the past year.
The jury awards three different prizes:
-The Golden Ace - Game of the Year rewards a game that is original in its mechanics as well as in its aesthetics. It is attributed to a family game, accessible to the greatest number;
- The Golden Ace - Game of the Year "Child" highlights a game that appeals to younger people but also appeals to their parents;
-The Ace of Gold - "Expert" Game of the Year rewards a more complex game aimed at an "expert" audience who appreciates thinking and isn't afraid to read a few pages of the rules.
Among the approximately 1,000 games published each year, the festival jury selects nine games, three in each category, striving to ensure that its selection is accessible to all ages and all tastes.
Quality, creativity, diversity, flawless mechanics and rules are the most important criteria, as well as the pleasure of playing and the desire to play again.
Here you know everything;) Have a good day and have a good game;)
