Japan Boardgame Prize 2022
We announce the 21st Japan Boardgame Prize! It is divided into two categories, namely, U-more Award and Voters' Selection.
We award a good game for beginners and families, named "U-more Award". The jury consists of seven administlators of our family gaming society.
However, this year, due to the influence of COVID-19, administlators could not perform enough test play for selection, so we decided to forgo the selection of "U-more Award".
And Voters' Selection: 142 boardgamers from 29 prefectures took part in the award, in cooperation with many boardgame circles and shops. They selected upto five favorites from a list of 267 titles, which were sold in Japanese market within the last one year. We added up for each voter 5 points to the first favorit, 4 points to the second ... 1 point to the fifth.
As a result "ARK NOVA" won the Japan Board Game Prize 2022.
