Finnish Game of the Year awards for 2006 are out now, and what a huge disappointment they are! Best children’s game is Build-a-Burger (I would’ve given the award to Das kleine Gespenst, but I don’t know anything about Build-a-Burger). Best family game is Quackle, which seems to be a clone of Snorta!, or at least the idea is similar. Best game for adults is Pentago, which is ridiculous! An old abstract game with a single new idea and nice bits, and the jury goes drooling over it.
Here’s the information in Finnish.
