【DE】Educational game of the year 2022 awarded at the games fair  

Prize awarded in three age categories / “Carla Caramell”, “Schnattergei” and “mabula” were awarded


A highly anticipated highlight of this year’s games fair was the award of the title “Learning Game of the Year.” Winners were selected in three different categories. The large and small visitors of the Stuttgart Games Fair were able to attend during the four days of the event from the 17th to the 20th. November extensively test the twelve nominated games on site and evaluate them according to criteria such as fun, appearance and learning effect – so they decided directly at the fair on the winners of the title “Learning Game of the Year”. Over the past year, an educational game of the month was nominated and presented on the Messe Stuttgart website.


In the category preschool age (three to five years), “Carla Caramell” from LOKI performed best. In the cooperative game of author Sara Zarian, one to six players aged four and over take on the role of ice cream sellers at a fair. The aim of the game is to serve the many children in line in front of the ice stand before the ice melts in the sun. In second and third place in this category were the games “Puzzle-Memo Ocean” (author: Günter Burkhardt, publisher: Three Rabbits in the evening sun) and “South Sea Stacking” (author: Günter Burkhardt, publisher: HABA).


In the school age category (five to nine years), visitors to the games fair “Schnattergei” voted the winner. In the reaction game from Amigo by author Haim Shafir, two to four players from the age of six must call the right colors when placing cards. In the ranking just behind it were “Plapper Boards” (author: Jack Degnan, publisher: Piatnik) and “Forest of Miracles” (author: Ikhwan Kwon, publisher: Schmidt Spiele).

In the category from the age of 10, “mabula” by author Nestor Romeral Andres (publisher: Steffen Spiele) was most popular. In the wooden game for two players, the goal is to create the largest contiguous area with the balls of your own color. Just behind it, “Neoville” (author: Phil Walker-Harding, publisher: Blue Orange/HCM Kinzel) and “Baumkronen” (author: Tim Eisner/Vincent Dutrait, publisher: Kosmos) were elected to second and third place.
