All "Deutscher SpielepreisđŸ‡©đŸ‡Ș 2015" game award winners & nominees in comparison 2024

We have clearly compared and listed all winners and nominees of the audience award "Deutscher SpielepreisđŸ‡©đŸ‡Ș 2015".

Audience Award instead of Critics Award

In contrast to the Spiel des Jahres, the "Deutscher SpielepreisđŸ‡©đŸ‡Ș" is not awarded by critics but by a professional audience (individual players, retailers, game circles, journalists). It is also called the "player" award - by players for players.

All games between "Essen" & "NĂŒrnberg" are nominated

All games published between the SPIEL in Essen of the previous year and the Nuremberg Toy Fair of the same year are included in the nomination list for the "Deutscher Spielepreis" (german for "German Game Award").

Anyone can participate

In addition to trade magazines and retailers, everyone (since 2001) may vote online. All participants choose what they think are the 5 best games of the vintage - first place gets 5 points, second 4, third 3, fourth 2 and fifth 1 point. Each participant is weighted exactly the same and their points are added up.

List of the 10 best games of the year

Finally, the 10 games with the highest total score are published. The game with the highest score is then the winner of the "German Game Award".

Since 1992 also "Deutscher Kinderspielpreis" (German Children's Game Award)

In addition to the 5 best games, each participant may also select a children's game. The one with the most votes then becomes the winner of the "Deutscher Kinderspielpreis" for the respective year.
