Trajan and Agricola: All Creatures Win IGA; Targi takes a la carte

The results of the International Gamers Awards (IGA) have been announced and Stefan Feld’s Trajan (published by Ammonit Spiele) is the winner of the multi-player game award, while Uwe Rosenberg’s Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small (from publishers Lookout Games and Z-Man Games) takes the two-player award.

After numerous nominations over the years, Feld finally wins a major award.  Other nominees which received strong consideration for the multi-player award were Eclipse, Village, Ora et Labora, and Mage Knight.  Creatures is Rosenberg’s third IGA award.  It narrowly nosed out Summoner Wars: Master Set for the victory.

Fairplay magazine also recently announced the results of the a la carte award, which the magazine conducts to recognize the best card game of the year.  The winner is Targi, the debut design of Andreas Steiger.  The two-player game, which is published by Kosmos, had earlier been nominated for the SdJ Kennerspiel and the IGA.  Targi therefore joins an illustrious group of former a la carte winners, including Race for the Galaxy, Dominion, Jaipur, and 7 Wonders.  The top 10 results for this year are as follows:

1. Targi (Andreas Steiger)
2. Ruhm für Rom (Carl Chudyk)
3. Rapa Nui (Klaus-Jürgen Wrede
4. The City (Tom Lehmann)
5. Friday (Friedemann Friese)
6. Die Tore der Welt: Das Kartenspiel (Walter Schranz)
7. Drecksau (Frank Bebenroth)
8. Mogel Motte (Emily and Lukas Brand)
9. Kleine Fotosafari (Tanja Triminek)
10. Bullenparty (Wolfgang Kramer)
