The best "As d'Or - Jeu de l'Année Expert"🇫🇷 winners & nominees (Expert Game) 2024

The As d'Or - Jeu de l'Année 🇫🇷 is a French game award that has existed every year since 1988. Since 2009, it also awards an extra prize for the best expert game of the year. 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 "As"), Jeu de l'année in English "Game of the Year" and "Expert" means "expert" - so the award is more or less French equivalent to the German Kennerspiel des Jahres Award - but goes even more into really board game experts... so this list may well contain real board game hunks.

All "As d'Or - Jeu de l'Année" years listed individually

The "French Game of the Year" has been awarded since 1988. Originally there were two different awards ("As d'Or" and "Jeu de l'Année") - but in 2005 they merged into one award. We have created separate lists for you for all years, all award types (family, expert, children's game) as well as all nominees:

    All details for the board game Zombie Kidz Evolution and similar games

    Zombie Kidz Evolution is a pioneering legacy-style board game designed specifically for children. Building upon the foundation of the 2013 game Zombie Kidz, this version introduces a dynamic and evolving gameplay experience. Set in a school under siege by zombies, young players must navigate through rooms and entryways to fend off the undead and prevent them from overrunning the school. The objective is to lock all four entryways of the school, a task complicated by the absence of the custodian. As players progress and improve their skills, they can undertake missions and earn trophies and stickers, similar to achievements in video games. The game also features envelopes that, when opened, add new elements to the game, including challenges, powers, and heroes, keeping the gameplay fresh and engaging.
