The best "As d'Or - Jeu de l'Année Expert"🇫🇷 winners & nominees. (Expert Game) 2021

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 German "Spiel des Jahres" and "Expert" means "expert" - so the award is more or less French equivalent to the German Kennerspiel des Jahres - 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:
