The best "As d'Or - Jeu de l'Année Tout Public"🇫🇷 winners & nominees (Main Prize) 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 that has been published within the last 18 months. As d'Or means "golden ace" (in the sense of the playing card "As") and Jeu de l'année in German "Spiel des Jahres".

The main prize "Tout Public" can be equated with the category "family game" - in fact there are extra awards for As d'Or children's games and As d'Or expert games. The award can thus be considered the French equivalent of the German Spiel des Jahres.

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:
