Kosmos Games UK has announced that The Crew – Quest for Planet 9 has won the coveted Kennerspiel des Jahres Award 2020, following a nail-biting few months since The Crew and My City were nominated by the Spiel des Jahres Jury.
The Crew has garnered rave reviews since its debut at Essen 2019. Initially a sleeper hit, word of the innovative co-operative trick taking game spread throughout the gaming world and led to Kosmos UK selling out of the English Language version within less than nine days of its arrival in February. Since being reprinted and arriving back in the UK in mid-April it has sold more than 8500 copies in the UK alone.
In order to meet demand and satisfy the gaming community, five free bonus missions – The Deimos Adventure, were devised and released on social media in a joint marketing campaign with Kosmos-Verlag and Thames & Kosmos US. The game is also under development as a digital entity and will be released in time for UK Games Expo in August.
