The jury distinguished Shadows Over Camelot with the special price for Fantasy play. The critics appreciated the play idea of the authors Serge Laget and Bruno Cathala, which converts the usual fantasy game with outstanding cooperative play elements. The publishing house Days of Wonder treated the game with suitably fantastic components.



Special prize for complex play - CAYLUS

The jury awarded Caylus with the special prize for complex play. The author William Attia has combined hours of strategy play with very high replay. This is supported by exemplarily clear symbolism on the play materials, which was an impressive achievement of the small French publishing house Ystari.
