The best "As d'Or - Jeu de l'Année"🇫🇷 winners 2021

The As d'Or - Jeu de l'Année 🇫🇷 is a French game award that has existed every year since 1988. It is meanwhile awarded in Cannes at the "Festival International des Jeux" to a board game published within the last 18 months. "As d'Or" means "Golden Ace" (in the sense of the playing card "Ace") and "Jeu de l'année" means "Game of the Year" - the prize is thus the French equivalent of the German Spiel des Jahres Award.

Jeu de l'année and As d'Or were originally two separate game awards. In 2005 the two merged and since then the "As d'Or - Jeu de l'année" is awarded together.

For more info, visit the official website of the As d'Or Jeu de l'année or the Facebook page of the Cannes Festival Internationel des Jeux.
