Board Game Oracle

Kennerspiel des Jahres (Connoisseur-gamer Game of the Year) is a category in the prestigious Spiel des Jahres award recognizing more complex board and card games. With the Spiel des Jahres traditionally awarded to family-weight games, more complex games were often left out of the award, and on more than one occasion, the jury offered a special prize for such games. This process was formalized in 2011 with the introduction of a new category: the "Kennerspiel des Jahres".
