Thames & Kosmos UK has said that they are absolutely thrilled and honoured to receive two nominations from the prestigious Spiel des Jahres Committee, My City by Reiner Knizia (Spiel des Jahres) and The Crew by Thomas Sing (Kennerspiel des Jahres).

Jo Drage, sales director at Thames & Kosmos UK, said: “After The Crew hit our warehoue earlier in the year it sold out within days and after coming back in stock last week is on course to sell out again soon which goes to show what a strong co-op team game The Crew is. This co-operative trick taking game took Essen Games Expo by storm last year and grew from a sleeper hit to a must-have game over a matter of weeks. 

“We can not wait to get My City into our warehouse in July so that the board game community in the UK will be able to enjoy this legacy game where no two games are alike”,  

The company reports that My City has delighted new and experienced gamers alike.

The Spiel des Jahres winners are due to be announced on the 20 July 2020.
